Crafty Carol Presents Louboutin's Quirky Christmas Countdown
C41, in collaboration with Christian Louboutin and director BOM, gives life to a film with a vintage retro touch with a festive, flamboyant, and crazy atmosphere. People all over the world love Christian Louboutin for its quality, style, and distinction. There is a wide refinement in the concept that C41 want to communicate through the emphasis on creativity and handmade design as a synonym for the brand and its products. The gingerbread house, as large as it is, subliminally resembles Louboutin’s iconic shoebox, which took inspiration from the first Louboutin store in terms of creativity. The subtle use of Louboutin red throughout. At every stage of the creative process, Christian Louboutin’s identity and products are an integral part of the visual effect of this campaign.
C41 drew inspiration from retro aesthetics but always combined with contemporary references of art, fashion, and design: the past that informs the present. You will therefore notice a visual patina that slightly echoes the look of pre-digital sitcoms shot on film while leaving a touch of contemporaneity that allows the viewer to identify with the scene. The idea of creating a gingerbread audience is adorable and fun and perfectly embodies the Christmas spirit that Louboutin wants to in still in the viewer. The extravagant and wonderful characters, large wigs, large nails, great personality make this film subtly ironic and pleasant to watch. They take us into a vintage and burlesque past that makes us smile.
And in the end, let’s not forget that it’s Christmas! C41 decided to use warm colours to create that feeling of celebration and union, a union given by Louboutin products as a gift.
