If you don’t think that museums are your cup of tea, here’s an exhibition that might just change your mind. Your Hotel Les Deux Girafes team invites you to head to a place that’s just a little off the major tourist routes; the Palais de la Porte Dorée. In the coming months, this exhibition is devoting an exhibition to the work of the fashion designer Christian Louboutin.


A creative journey; the Louboutin exhibition at the Palais de la Porte Dorée

The aim of this exhibition is to look at the creative journey of Christian Louboutin, the designer whose name is a byword in the world of luxury footwear. The creativity of this key figure in fashion is examined in parallel with the works that inspired him as well as his cinematographic, theatrical, literary and pop culture references. You’ll discover plenty of examples of Louboutin’s iconic shoes as well as other items from the designer’s personal collection or on loan from various museums.


The Palais de la Porte Dorée

The choice of the Palais de la Porte Dorée (Palace of the Golden Gate) as the venue for this exhibition is certainly apt. Built for the Colonial Exhibition of 1931, this magnificent Art Deco building boasts some delightfully rich architecture and décor, including frescoes, bas-reliefs, mosaics and parquet floors suggesting inspirations both exotic and closer to home. The Palais de la Porte Dorée, in addition to hosting the National Museum of Immigration History and a tropical aquarium, also presents temporary exhibitions reflecting the great diversity of contemporary creativity. Christian Louboutin is a perfect example!

During your stay at the Hotel Les Deux Girafes, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Louboutin exhibition at the Palais de la Porte Dorée. It runs from February 25th to July 28th, 2020 and features dazzling creativity, previously unseen collaborations and, of course, plenty of red-soled shoes!
