While an array of nude shades has been steadily appearing on the catwalk collections for the last few seasons, the breadth of hues available has not matched a ‘true’ nude for most. The Christian Louboutin brand has caught on, widely extending the colour palette for its Nude Collection to introduce a palette of seven new tones, ranging from fair to chestnut.
Having launched the line in 2013, Louboutin became one of the first high-end fashion labels to approach the idea that nude is not actually a colour, but a concept. With the extended range of shades, the label has designed the collection with the intention of appealing to every woman’s skin colour, ensuring the optical illusion of elongating the leg with a nude shoe, can work for everyone.
The revelation emerges in conjunction with the addition of two new styles (including Louboutin’s Deepick and Dorissima), which will feature alongside the popular classic stiletto, pumps and peep-toes. Set to hit stores in August, the hashtag #NudesForAll will be used to celebrate the launch on social media.
