“I love Shun Sudo’s work. While working on the collection we discovered many common points in the way we work on colors, with strong and audacious combinations,” Louboutin said in a press release. “And since the very beginning of my career I’ve one emblematic flower: the Pensee (my first design to receive the red sole), he has his own one: the Button Flower that appeared to become the center of the collection. His technique also is very characteristic and I did my best to transcript this painting effect on the shoes.”

Similarly, Sudo has also been inspired by Louboutin. “Christian Louboutin’s shoes exude a sense of beauty, eccentricity and delicacy that I have never seen in my life. They inspired my creativity. I am very grateful to have collaborated with Christian,” said Sudo.

The Japanese had a specific reason for using the button flower design as the main inspiration for this collection. He added, “Flowers, with their nobility and grace, their sweetness and charm, they have a special ability to heal our hearts. The Button, is, in my mind, the perfect embodiment of something that connects two separate things and makes them one. The ‘Button Flower’ brings these two powerful symbols together and is really at the very core of my personal philosophy of hope and my wish that the hearts of different peoples, nations and cultures will be joined into one.”
