Christian Louboutin: "I encourage everyone to stay open, and embrace the unexpected"

MUMBAI: One of the most celebrated shoe designers in the world, Louboutin is most famous for his signature red sole, which graces many of his designs -- including the notoriously towering Pigalle pump stiletto. From Tina Turner to Amy Adams to Rami Malek, Louboutin’s shoes are a red carpet staple, and he is a recognized celebrity himself on the streets of his hometown of Paris.

Fascinated with travel and prone to imaginative flights from an early age, Louboutin chose the theme of “Journeys” for his guest editorship.

Over the next month, CNN Style will be publishing features that celebrate journeys -- of the physical and mental kind -- as well as some of Louboutin’s other interests, via ancient civilizations, photography and gems.

The first features curated by Christian Louboutin include:

Guest editor’s letter: From east Paris to world fame -- how imagination and travel fueled Christian Louboutin's success

The ancient buildings that have shape-shifted across centuries

Photographer Daniel Arnold visits the center and sidelines of the world's largest gem show
