Two years ago, Christian Louboutin released his first capsule collection of nude shoes that included five varying nude colorways. Now, he’s released five new tones from “fair blush” to “rich chestnut.” Louboutin says he tried to make it a little easier on people who want to wear shoes to match their skin color – but acknowledges that he still has a long way to go. “There are two colors that I’m missing the range of in the middle,” he says. “In the next year, we will be at seven total skin tones.”
To show of the sho, the designer asked fashion editors Shiona Turini, Jane Keltner de Valle, and Nina Garcia to style them however they pleased to show their versatility and range in colors.
With prices around the £400-and-up mark, Louboutin’s collection were inspired by the desire to offer shades that matched different women from around the world.
