What happens where concept art, shoes and fashion meet? Fashion p*rn clearly. That's what super kook-dook progeny of psychoanalysis and art, Bella Freud, has been up to. She's only cooked up some majorly goreous knitwear in collaboration with shoe king Christian Louboutin.

The collection is based on Christian's iconic sketches but takes the exquisite shoe fetish to a new level - a modern '80s take that no doubt got Bella originally hired back in the day by the queen of '80s fetish fashion, Vivienne Westwood . [caption id="attachment_2391" align="aligncenter" width="366" caption="A seriously sweet sweater"][/caption] Now almost sold out online, the shoe emblazoned superfine merino wool knit dresses, sweaters and leotards have been incorporated into Selfridges Presents: The World of Louboutin.
