Louboutin looked towards the floral works of impressionists using as inspiration the most beautiful and most famous still life painting geniuses including Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh while Lippman carefully and cleverly juxtaposed  the exquisite shoes and handbags with the blooms in the Flowers series.

The colors are vibrant, bright as are the flowers,glittery lace-up shoes, court shoes, pumps and shiny sandals. And pastel colors dominates on the bags.

We love the paintings and the shoes designs. We can’t help feeling conflicted though: Our inner feminist cringes at the length of those heels, while our inner diva is giving snaps of admiration and already crunching numbers mentally.

Would you run off and buy these?
