Now they’re fucking with us: Christian Louboutin just showered his latest shoes in trash. The heels are made of garbage (PVC-glossed to stifle the gross) and lux snakeskin and sport the labels signature red heel. The garbage itself is the most upmarket kind, of course: “pieces of thread, postage stamps, scribbled notes, leftover sequins, and fabric swatches from seasons past” (so no two pairs are alike). They’re called the “Eco-Trash” pump and they cost $1,095.
So, on the one hand, collage is a big trend this season. On the other, this is tasteless, insofar as Louboutin is charging a grand for ugly shoes in a mocking nod to “eco-friendly” initiatives.
Sorry! This poll is now closed.
