French shoe designer Christian Louboutin lives the best of the two worlds; the craze of fashion and star-studded events, the signature red-soled stilettos he creates, and, the regular appearances on international red carpets. The other is a private retreat nestled in the desert near the Egyptian city of Aswan! not far from the banks of the Nile!! Louboutin comes here throughout the year to design new collections, rest, and practice yoga.
The rooms are decorated with pieces Louboutin has collected on his travels: Uzbek embroidered fabrics, Moroccan rugs, handmade furniture from Cameroon; the heart of the home is the open-air courtyard, with a fireplace that blazes through the cool desert evenings.
