The “Pigalle”: Louboutin’s iconic shoes

Before the new pandemic-induced restrictions, the Palais de la Porte Dorée welcomed the Louboutin exhibition “L’Exhibition[niste]”. A great opportunity to get an overview and rediscover these now emblematic shoes, which French fashion can take pride in: the “Pigalle”. Created by Christian Louboutin for his Fall/Winter 2004/2005 collection , these black pumps and their evocative name have become the mythical red-soled shoes. The creator revisits and reinterprets the model each season, and the blazing modernity of this timeless piece is undeniable. Focus on a stiletto makes everyone flush red.
