with the festive season nearing, the flurry of celebration is palpable and designboom is receiving work from all over world honoring the spirit of the holiday. responsible for decorating the holiday windows of christian louboutin boutique shops, london studio XAG turned to the french designer’s ‘pigalle’ shoe as their muse, creating bespoke christmas tree displays composed of the high heels – executed in white, of course finished with his signature glossy red sole. casts of the shoes have been placed in concentric levels to create recognizable tree forms, all supposed by a tonal metalwork structure which draws on the shoe roacks found in the designer’s atelier in paris. to add a dynamic edge, each tree is enclosed by a triple mirror screen and rotates, amplifying the scene and drawing focus to the hero product which sits in pride at its top.
