"Le Rituel" is a collaboration between the champagne producer Piper Heidsieck and the famous shoemaker Christian Louboutin. Inspired by the 19th century ritual in Paris for men to drink champagne from lady's shoes as a gentlemanly move, the champagne producer and the shoe designer decided to bring back old-fashioned romance to present times. Louboutin's task was to create a stiletto shaped crystal flute for drinking champagne. The stiletto screams Louboutin, of course, with its wonderful shape and red soles. Besides the "shoe", Le Rituel consists of a bottle of champagne, both packed in an elegant black box and available for 500 USD, from October 26.
