Christian Louboutin launched the first of-its-kind Loboutin Nudes Collection in the summer of 2013 to great acclaim. The capsule collection comes in a spectrum of skin colours from fair (Blush #1) to a rich chestnut (Blush #5), in four core styles.
Previously available in classics including Pigalle and the Simple Pump, the Loboutin Nudes Collection will debut this month in seasonal silhouettes Deepik and Dorissima for the first time.
For SS15 and FW15 Christian focuses on the wavy, mirage-like heel of the Dalida, “it reminds me of my favourite moment in film when Peter O’Toole in Lawrence of Arabia sees Omar Sharif (Ali) for the very first time. He’s not sure if it’s a mirage, caused by the sun, or really someone else and it’s sublime.”
The Dorissima—expected to be a favorite, is a single-sole, timeless pump with a heartshaped toe box and a thin sky-high heel, “it’s important to evolve the style and have fun with it,” he says of Dorissima.
Christian views So Kate as having the ideal heel height and although “re-arranged in terms of toe cleavage,” it resembles our most popular shoe the Pigalle. As for the Iriza it boasts a very high arch and sexy attitude, “there’s something very naked and raw about the Iriza,” says Christian.
The collection crosses over to Beauté Louboutin with ten Nude nail colours that are designed to give the feel of an instant grooming.
