Christian Louboutin - Nouveau Ancien

Many accessory designers seem to be making a nod toward Renaissance era artwork for their recent ad campaigns. In a similar fashion as Hermes, Christian Louboutin is the most recent craftsman to feature his accessory artwork for F/W 2011 in daVinci-esque paintings. What do you think?

  1. I love the tongue & cheek element to the campaigns!

  2. Stunning!  My favorite is the Magdalene with the Smoking Flame ... and of course the Puck Boot isn't too shabby ;)
