Christian Louboutin has had collaborations in the past from Goop to Disney for Cinderella. He is working with Disney once again for a set of Star Wars-inspired shoes for the premiere of The Last Jedi. He created four pairs for the female leads: Rey, Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, Captain Phasma, and Rose Tico.
The shoes will be displayed in an instillation with “hyper-realistic” holograms.
According to WWD, Louboutin said, “[Disney and Star Wars] are very strong at developing characters. I have the same thing when I’m designing shoes. I often think of a character, so in a way for me, it totally makes sense to work around the character because that’s basically what I do.”
He also adds, “I love the ships that [the Star Wars team has] been designing. As every style is very, very different, I wanted to put a thread from one to another. So the thread which has been continuous is actually my interpretation of the fighter. It’s a feminine fighter.”
There are just a few days left before the premiere so this collaboration makes us even more excited. Let us know which one is your favorite pair in the comments section.
