“L’Exhibition[niste] Chapter II”: all you need to know about Christian Louboutin’s incredible show at the Grimaldi Forum co-sponsored by Mytheresa

If you are heading to the South this summer, don’t miss the unique chance to see the Christian Louboutin’s blockbuster exhibition “L’Exhibition[niste] Chapter II” that has just arrived in Monaco. It’s not an exact copy, but rather a new version of the Parisian show, retracing more than 30 years of Louboutin’s successful career – and, this time, the project has been co-sponsored by one of his favorite retailer partners’ Mytheresa. The second installment of the legendary shoemaker’s story about his passions and sources of inspiration at the Grimaldi Forum, focuses not only on the most precious items from Christian’s personal collection, but also on rarest never-seen-before Monegasque pieces – Monsieur Louboutin selected treasures from the collections of the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco and the Oceanographic Museum together with his friend, curator Oliver Gabet, who helped him work on his first show in Paris.

On Monday night, to celebrate the grand opening of the exhibition, Michael Kliger, chief executive officer of Mytheresa, hosted an intimate preview of the show for the happy few: we spotted Tamara Kalinic, Maria Borges, Vanessa Hong, Alexandra Van Houtte and Pierre Yovanovitch walking the museum’s galleries enhanced by the magnificent scenography by the British artist Allen Jones. The night continued with the celebratory dinner at Villa Maria Serena, one of the most magical places on the French Riviera. Highlights included: the French rising star Lukas Ioensco’s live performance in the garden and a DJ set by the one and only Violet Indigo. A night to remember, where Christian danced with his friends, all in red-soled shoes, of course till late… The exhibition will be open to the public until August 28, so, walk don’t run.
