Christian Louboutin is set to experience his own fairy tale by designing a Cinderella-inspired slipper.
The French shoe designer extraordinaire, who is celebrating 20 years in the industry and is famous for his red-soled designs, has been hired by Walt Disney Studios to create a pair of shoes inspired by the rags-to-riches protagonist from the 1950s animation.
“I have been so lucky to have crossed paths with Cinderella, an icon so emblematic to the show world as well as the dream world” remarked Louboutin.
The unique design will be unveiled in July, ahead of the global release of the Cinderella Diamond Edition on Blu-ray later this year.
“I think we have made the fairy tale fashionable again” said a Walt Disney spokesperson.
