Christian Louboutin Beauty proved the obvious next step for the footwear designer; after all, its signature red sole owes its very existence to a bottle of red nail polish that Louboutin himself first applied to the reverse of his shoe. Offering a collection of nail lacquers, lipsticks and eye products, the carefully curated shades and decadent packaging point to the brand’s overriding appreciation of glamour and femininity.
Seeing red? Then they’re Christian Louboutin. The heart (and soles) of the designer’s every collection, Louboutin’s love affair with rouge began in 1992 when he used a colleague’s nail varnish to decorate a prototype of his Pensée heels. The rest is history. Now, be it the Nudes collection, classic Kate pumps or aptly named Epic boots, all Louboutin shoes are united by their iconic flash of red.
When it comes to Christian Louboutin, making a bold style statement begins at ground level. Collectible sneakers, slick boots, ornate loafers – all based with a vivid red sole; Christian Louboutin’s conversation-starting footwear is for the man who dresses with confidence and flair.
Because every Louboutin heel needs a handbag to match, look no further than the maison’s oh-so covetable collection of cross-body bags, embellished totes and leather phone pouches. Elisa, Paloma and Cabata top the Who’s Who of luxury handbag nomenclature.
Cue lipstick, eye make-up and nail varnish in eye-catching shades and decadent packaging – a nod to Mr Louboutin’s passionate appreciation of glamour and femininity. And the latest addition to the beauty portfolio is a seven-strong perfume collection.
