Christian Louboutin's new Robertson Boulevard store is just about ready to open, and to mark the occasion, the designer has decided to try his hand at filmmaking. The result, dubbed, Psychologic is a ten-minute short loosely based on on Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho—and by "loosely," we mean that the weapon of choice is a daggar-heeled stiletto and, instead of dying, the herione is transported into an alternate universe brimming with crystal-encrusted booties and lace pumps. The gorgeous gate and garden we shot last week make more than a few cameos, and the building itself serves as the facade for the murder scene / shoe-gasm. Oh, and ignore the line at the end saying the store opened September 6—All the Rage claims it's due to open next week.
