Christian Louboutin: ‘A Successful Shoe Accentuates Nudity’

Christian Louboutin: “I prefer shoes that undress to shoes that dress. A successful shoe is a shoe that accentuates nudity. The woman remains entirely nude when she wears those shoes. The shoe becomes the privilege of nudity ... If you are very chic you might not need an extra drop of chicness, so you go for the sexy side and buy my shoes because they are ... tarty. We get very smart women coming in and buying a pair to feel a little more sluttish. And then, thank God, we also get the hookers coming in the store, who buy my shoes because they are superchic. You see, whatever you have, if you add a drop of the opposite, then it just becomes a little more sexy.” [Times UK]
