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.
