Art inspired Advertising

Yesterday, I discovered these beautiful ad shots from Christian Louboutin's new Autumn/Winter collection via Fashionista and The Telegraph.
They are coining the old masters as well as the notion of Louboutin's work being thought of as works of art, and incorporating Louboutin's works into the art. Beautiful. Wouldn't mind having a pair myself - or one of the ads for that matter. I really like when both fashion and art work together like this. They enhance and compliments eachother. I wouldn't mind if more designers or companies thought in these lines. I think ads would become more appealing at least to me. And I can't see a downfall of distributing more awareness of great art - through museum or fashion advertising, it doesn't matter.. It makes the world a prettier place.

 Georges de la Tour's Magdalene and the Flame sees the subject staring longingly at the 'Puck' boot
 Francois Clouet’s Elizabeth of Austria rests a ‘Catalina’ sequinned clutch bag (£795) and a golden spiked ‘Pigalilli’ platform (£2,295)
 A leopard-print shoulder bag has managed to find a home nestled under the arm of Jean-Marc Nattier’s Marquise de Pompadour portrait
 Francisco de Zurbaran’s Santa Dorotea carefully holds a fruit platter bearing the new ‘8 Mignon’ strappy sandals (£765)
 Arrangement in Grey and Black: The Artist's Mother, by James McNeill Whistler, has been given a Louboutin makeover. Under photographer Peter Lipmann’s eye, instead of clutching a hankerchief, Whistler's Mother can be seen holding the fashion-forward ‘Tootsie’ ankle boot (£1,895), adorned with roccia leathers and studded piping.
Marie-Guillemine Benoist’s Portrait d'une Negresse totes a ‘Balda Booty’ (£695)

I agree. It isn't the first time that Louboutin has done something like this and I like the trend he's setting. :)

Thanks for stopping by.


Wow! So cool. I haven't seen these ad shots yet. So hauntingly beautiful :-)
