Louis Vuitton’s Doll Shoes
Fabrizio Viti, Louis Vuitton’s shoe style director, has had his collection of more than 500 fashion dolls immortalised in a stop-motion film created for the French luxury label’s online magazine, New Now.
Viti has been collecting dolls and their accessories since he was three years old, and has long been inspired by them for his own designs. He describes the creative process as a two-way relationship as he uses the dolls as both an experimental platform for future Vuitton designs, as well as translating Vuitton styles into miniature versions for his doll collection. Shoes for the dolls are created at Fiesso d’Artico – the same Italian workshop that produces the life-sized Louis Vuitton shoe collection, with a great deal of attention to detail being spent on the tiny replicas.
The film, entitled Walking in Fabrizio Viti’s Shoes, was created by Parisian production studio Les Courtisans. See the video here.
