KILLER LOOKS, KILLER CHARM
It seems like the “fashion film” is set to be the mode of expression and identity this year. Jumping on the bandwagon is Christian Louboutin. As a means of showcasing its latest collection, the French shoemaker presents a short thriller entitled Who Killed Amazoula?. The mystery shrouding the ill-fated yet glamorous titular character remains unresolved. But one thing is clear: Louboutin objects possess endearingly French cinematic charm – specifically, sex appeal and the ability to commit heartless betrayal. Beautiful items that are as deadly as they are gorgeous? A killer strategy, we say.
