Capturing The Old Masters with Peter Lippmann for Christian Louboutin
Peter Lippmann recently partnered up with luxury shoe and handbag designer, Christian Louboutin, to shoot their Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook. Drawing inspiration from the impressionist masters, Peter photographed Louboutin accessories within meticulous recreations of works by Brueghel, Cézanne, Fantin-Latour, Monet, Pissarro, and Van Gogh. Through this ongoing partnership with the designer, Peter has created Louboutin lookbooks for the past 6 years but has been creating images like these for much longer. His method of crafting photos with a painterly approach has been tested for over 25 years, each time changing his method slightly and perfecting his results. The images were shot over the course of four days with the help of stylist Marie Noelle Perriau and assistant Quentin Reytinas.
