Everyone's favorite designer of red-soled high heels, Christian Louboutin, will be the star of his own retrospective next year at the UK's Design Museum. The exhibition will celebrate Louboutin’s career to date, showcasing 20 years of stilettos, lace-up boots, studded sneakers, bejeweled pumps, and much, much more. 

The designer will reveal work from his personal archive and explore his inspirations, which apparently include everything in the world: performance, cabaret, fantasy and fairy tale, architecture, art, film, landscape, and travel. In addition, Louboutin's collaboration with director/artist David Lynch, which spawned a body of work entitled Fetish, will be on display. 

If you've ever wondered how his pricey shoes are made, or what the design process looks like, we recommend you drop the £10 admission fee and check it out.
