More than a lookbook! (Part 2)

Following my previous post about the new F/W 11-12 lookbook of the famous designer Christian Louboutin with the collaboration of the photographer Peter Lippmann, which was inspired by famous classic portrait paintings, I was curious to see the paintings and compare them with the photos of the lookbook.

Trully I was amazed…

I have created a collage with the two pictures. On the left you will see the pictures of Louboutin’s lookbook and on the right the real painting.

Take a look and I am waiting for your comments!

“Santa Dorotea” by Francisco de Zurbaran (1648)

“Elisabeth of Austria” by Francois Clouet (1571)

“Portrait of a Girl” by Jean Babtiste Camille Corot (1857)

“Mary Magdalene with oil lamp” by Georges de la Tour (1635)

“Marquise d’Antin” by Jean-Marc Nattier (1738)

“Portrait d’une Negresse” by Marie-Guillemine Benoist (1800)

“Arrangement in grey and white / Whistler’s Mother” by Whistler (1871)

Such inspirational work…

More than a lookbook! (Part 1)

The famous designer Christian Louboutin and the photographer Peter Lippmann worked together to present the new lookbook for the designer’s F/W 11-12 collection.

Inspired by famous classic portrait paintings they have presented an artistic lookbook that can be exhibited in art galleries and museums, not only in a fashion store.

If we consider the Marketing approach this is a campaign that noone will ever forget!

Let’s take a look on the pictures:
