As trunk shows go, this is a big one: Today from 3 to 6pm on the fourth floor of Barneys New York on Madison Avenue, ladies who lunch will gather to see the man, the legend, shoe designer Christian Louboutin. The famed Frenchman will be on hand to sign the trademark red leather soles of his luxurious heels; to celebrate the occasion, Barneys creative director Simon Doonan has blown up a few of Louboutin's sketches and placed them in the windows of the store. Roving Racked photog Will Femia snapped some shots of the displays, galleried above for your viewing pleasure.
