It's a rainy day in Paris yesterday, but this didn't stop me from venturing out. I actually love rainy, gray days--as long as it's not too cold, bien sur.
Anyway, I was on a mission to find Duvelleroy fans at Bon Marché. There was a special exhibition, but I was so sad when I found out that I had missed it while I was in the south of France at my artists residency. (I am going to return to their attelier on rue Amelie--more on that in a few days).
Still, Bon Marché was very festive!
I found all these adorable cardboard cutouts floating about the main level, dancing and twirling by invisible strings.
I soon found out that all this frivolity was to celebrate Christian Louboutin!
The famous French shoe designer has collaborated with Bon Marché to create a fabulous pop-up store/exhibit, including special shoes designed just for the occasion. Louboutin is a Paris native, so he loves to play with iconic images from the City of Light. J'adore these boots!
If you look closer, you can see that the print is a map of Paris.
Oh, and of course, Louboutin included is iconic red souled pumps!
I loved how the pop-up was about so much more than just promoting shoes, but rather it was a bit of a museum exhibition--giving you some history on Louboutin's designs and how he approaches his work. Louboutin is a true artiste!

Signing off, for now, mes amies!
