Christian Louboutin and Disney bring Cinderella’s magic back to life
In celebration of Cinderella’s global release of the animated classic’s Diamond Edition on Blu-ray, Disney has teamed up with shoe maestro Christian Louboutin to design a Cinderella slipper, putting his own magic touch on the world’s most famous pair of shoes.
“Isn’t it everyone’s dream, to once in your life be part of a fairy tale? Walt Disney Studios gave me a wonderful opportunity to live this magical moment. I have been so lucky to have crossed paths with Cinderella, an icon who is so emblematic to the shoe world as well as the dream world,” Monsieur Louboutin commented on his latest project.
There are very few details on what the final product would look like. The only thing the fashion world knows is that it will be a Cinderella-inspired pair of Louboutins. Will they be made of glass? That part wasn’t made clear at all. Will they have Louboutin’s signature red soles? Is the modern-day Cinderella going to be fine with 5-inch skyscraper heels and studs?
That’s for all of us to find out come early July, when more details will be unveiled. Watch this space.
