In 2010 Christian Louboutin revealed his secret hobby was trapeze. “There’s something about moving through space, being lifted through the air,” he said. “I never wanted to lift weights, and dance is too choreographed, but the fact that this looks so effortless, and it’s so hard – what it gives to people is beauty. But it’s also a private thing; it’s not competitive, it’s not for anyone else. It gets into your head.” He has been practising trapeze for the past 20 years, having been inspired by the 1987 Wim Wenders film Wings of Desire.
You do your thing Christian, just keep designing the shoes!
