Kidult Takes Aim at Christian Louboutin

This article was posted by Senior Editor 2 years, 1 month, 4 weeks, 1 day, 9 hours, 37 minutes ago.

  • Paris vandal Kidult has quickly made a name for himself blasting fire extinguisher tags across boutique storefronts. Kidult’s latest target is shoe designer Christian Louboutin. But why? Well, Christian Louboutin recently celebrated his 20th anniversary at Nieman Marcus in Beverly Hills with a big “graffiti” bash.

    From Nieman Marcus’ blog:

    “To promote Louboutin’s L.A. appearance, Neiman Marcus commissioned street artist Galo Canote (also known as “Make” or “MakeOne” and “LoveGalo”) to design a Christian Louboutin billboard on the side of a building on the iconic Sunset Strip. The Beverly Hills store windows also got the street-artist treatment for the visit, as did the eye-popping shoe salon. Louboutin lovers where encouraged to “tag” a white wall with their names and messages for the man behind the iconic brand, much as he tagged their new acquisitions.”

    And as Mr. Louboutin said:

    “I love graffiti. It’s inspiring because it’s an art form that is quite young,” he says. “And yet, it’s everywhere. I travel everywhere and you find it everywhere. So it’s very interesting to find this form of expression worldwide. It’s become universal.”

    Christian Louboutin sounds like he’s into graffiti, maybe he’ll dig Kidult’s contribution?
