Just when you thought all he could do was make you shell out for his shoes, Christian Louboutin proves the world wrong: you can design pretty shoes and have other talents as well..who knew? (Sigh). Yes, those of us who are silly enough to enjoy beautiful things can actually produce emotionally compelling and interesting projects and we can’t wait to see what Louboutin is bringing to the silver screen. Christian Louboutin Silver Screen-Bound New and expanded boutiques in works Wednesday, April 11, 2007 (NEW YORK) Christian Louboutin is quietly expanding his empire—and he wouldn’t have it any other way. The man who launched a million shoe fetishes thanks to his trademark red soles is currently writing his first script for a European movie that will begin filming in 2008 in the south of France. Before then, Louboutin will be debuting stand alone boutiques in Las Vegas and Tokyo, a second store in London, and a flagship in Paris, bringing his Paris total to three. He is also in the planning stages for stores in China and will be selling in India through Paris retailer Maria Luisa’s new store that will open in Delhi in July. Manhattan, however, will have to come first. Louboutin is moving his store, currently at 941 Madison Avenue, up two blocks to 969 Madison Avenue, into a space—formerly a Zitomer’s—that is 50 percent larger than his current boutique. It will be completely redesigned by 212 Box, who created the Horatio Street boutique in the West Village, to feature his expanding handbag collection. The store is scheduled to open July 1. Louboutin recently tapped Alexis Mourot, European director at Marc Jacobs, to be his chief operating officer. He joins company chief executive officer Bruno Chamberland.
