Christian Louboutin

Shoe Designer

Christian Louboutin is one of the world’s most revered and famed shoe designers. Renowned for his signature red-soled shoes, his fans include Princess Caroline of Monaco, Madonna and Marion Cotillard to name but a few.

Christian was photographed in his atelier on Rue Jean-Jacques-Rousseau (not far from Mandarin Oriental, Paris). When travelling abroad Christian appreciates the quietness and ‘exoticism’ he finds at Mandarin Oriental hotels. His favourite is in Bangkok, as “the light inside the hotel and by the river is so special, it feels like you are in a novel”.

I like Mandarin Oriental Hotels because to me they are an invocation of exoticism.
