Beauty by Louboutin: From red soles to red lips
Fans of the red bottomed-shoe designer who lack the funds to adorn their feet with Louboutins will be delighted to know they’ll be able to get their hands on much cheaper Louboutins — in the form of cosmetics!
Christian Louboutin announced recently that he is set to enter the beauty industry, having teamed up with Batallure Beauty to form Christian Louboutin Beauté.
Chairman of Batallure Beauty, Robin Burns commented: “Wearing a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes completely transforms a woman and Christian will bring that same transformative quality to women through his beauty products.”
Considering the inspiration for his signature red soles was a bottle of bright red nail enamel, it seems a cosmetics collection is the perfect way to go for the man whose aim in life is to make women look and feel beautiful.
Louboutin said: “Twenty years ago I started what I thought would be a small adventure, which ended up becoming a company. The beauty adventure is a natural extension for someone like me, who likes to empower women. To be a part of creating beauty seems like the right next step.”
2012 has been a huge year for Louboutin, as the French designer celebrated the twentieth anniversary of his eponymous brand with plenty of pomp and splendour – he launched a coffee table book and an anniversary collection and the Christian Louboutin exhibition is currently showing at London’s Design Museum.
2013 looks set to be just as big, as the luxury beauty products are expected to launch late in the year. Although there have been no previews of the Christian Louboutin Beauté, we would expect nothing less than luxury and elegance from Mr Louboutin and, of course, plenty of his signature glossy scarlet.
