The official opening of the exhibition took place with great fanfare. The Palais de la Porte Doree in Paris, where the designer of luxury footwear exhibits the marvelous products of his creativity, is constantly busy. Some of the shoes on display here have never been exhibited before. You have to see them with your own eyes!
The exhibition, entitled L'Exhibition (Niste), is indeed a phenomenal event, encompassing 30 years of Louboutin's life. You'll discover where he found inspiration for his legendary Nudes luxury shoes and witness his spectacular cooperation with Yves Saint Laurent. The gold stilettos on the platform, depicting the golden era of Hollywood, originally owned and worn by Mae West, demonstrate his penchant for illusions.

In addition, you'll be able to admire Wedgwood porcelain, a Vivant Denon collection of Egyptian objects and surrealistic works by Joseph Cornell.
