Welcome to Paris: the city of lovers, artists and poets. Paying tribute to the City of Light’s splendor, the Maison launches its new signature tote: The Cabaraparis.
“Paris is my ultimate muse. It’s one of the most visited cities in the world, with some of the grandest architecture. I wanted to capture that fantasy element of Paris, not anchor the CABARAPARIS in reality.” Christian Louboutin
Marking the first artist collaboration on a seasonal tote, the Cabaraparis is typically tongue-in-cheek. Featuring five neoprene panels illustrated by the talented Hélène Tran, the city’s most timeless characters and iconic monuments are brought to life by her inimitable brushstrokes.
Available in two precious strass-embellished styles, the Cabaraparis pays tribute to the City of Light’s two facets. By day, the Cabaraparis takes us on a whirlwind ride through the capital’s streets. Dotted throughout this dreamscape map of Paris, we discover a giant red-soled Corset stiletto pumps, flirtatious chimeras and crazed streetlamps, all more charismatic than the last. In a whimsical twist, love letters written by Christian to his beloved city line the Cabaraparis Day’s interior.
Over on the Cabaraparis Night, the sun has set and the cabaret lights dazzle with their brilliance. Chimeras beguile and enchant Christian, turning him into a Parisian sphinx, half human, half leopard. High in the inky blue sky, a CL star twinkles with strass crystals whilst on rue Jean Jacques Rousseau, the Maison’s flagship boutique illuminates the darkened streets, drawing in curious passersby. On the tote’s lining, a feline Christian meows, “T’shoes me!”.
A whirlwind of imagination and storytelling, the launch of the Cabaraparis is set to coincide with a retrospective exhibition at the famed Palais de la Porte Dorée, dedicated to the designer’s creative universe. Needless to say, Paris is always a good idea !
