There are few things in this world hotter than the killer scarlet heel of a Louboutin shoe which is why we’ve selected the French footwear designer’s retrospective at the Design Museum as this week’s pick of the Hot List. The exhibition, which opens this Tuesday (May 1) will examine the evolution of those famed flame red shoes, at every stage of the Label’s design process – from concept to catwalk. There’ll be objects and images reflecting the designer’s inspiration, so expect art, architecture and cabaret alongside the stilettos and boots. Louboutin, whose personal ambition is ‘to make women’s legs look as long as he can’, boasts a colourful career including a collaboration in 2007 with David Lynch entitled ‘Fetish’. We strongly suggest you hot foot it down to the Design Museum to see for yourself.
