Christian-Louboutin-silhouetteThe art and fashion extravaganza has arrived showering Miami with exhibition openings, private dinners and late-night parties. Thursday evening I attended the Christian Louboutin Art Basel event held at the Miami Design District women’s boutique. It’s the third installation held at the boutique during the premier international winter art show. This season, Christian Louboutin in collaboration with Xavier Laboulbenne, celebrated an exhibition of recent works by Carmelo Tedeschi.

Known best as the creator of one-of-a-kind accessories for Martin Margiela’s ‘Line-0’ artisanal collection, Tedeschi uses organic materials such as exceptional leather found in Italy carved by hand. For the exhibit, M.Louboutin selected five free standing sculptures made of vegetable-tanned carved and hand-stitched leather.


Tedeschi’s collection was inspired by the 18th-century Rocaille French stylistic movement which diminished heavy architectural elements by adding fluid melodic contour and continuous curves. Coincidentally, this is what I love about many of Louboutin’s styles, particularly the silhouette of the ‘So Kate’ heel.


The sunny South Florida boutique is aesthetically beautiful with a sleek gallery style entrance featuring “a box within a box” concept and interior room encased in an intimate area filled with the latest collection.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while DJ Chelsea Leyland worked the music. Aimee Song from the blog Song of Style also made an appearance debuting her new ‘Pigalle’ pumps in blue khol suede.

This was also the perfect opportunity to meet my new “home” store and sales associates (Natalie & Mario are lovely!).

The store had an impressive selection of Fall ‘13 & new Spring ‘14 designs and I spotted several fabulous styles including the red leather ‘Azimut’ gladiator booties, python faience ‘So Kate’ pumps, orange python ‘Pigalle’ pumps and the nautical-inspired striped ‘Geo’ cap-toe pumps.


The Carmelo Tedeschi exhibition will run from December 5, 2013 – to the end of January 2014. You can check out more photos from the event at Bill Farrell Agency.

Also, don’t forget to visit the new men’s boutique which opened early this fall. Plus, in the back of the store lies the “Tattoo Parlor,” where shoppers can add a personal touch to their favorite pair of Louboutins choosing from personal “tattoos” or one of Louboutin’s designs.
