Monsieur Louboutin knows what women want, shoes, and more shoes. He also knows women want long legs, like Rockettes. Parisian shoe designer has new five shades of nudes to match shoe color to skin color, thereby giving a long legged look to those who desires it. In Louboutin’s own words ‘They disappear like magic and become a fluid extension of her legs, as in a sketch, elongating the silhouette.”
Five of Louboutin classic styles get the nude treatment. They are the pointed toe Pigalle, the curvier Fifi, Simple Pump, Flo and the Vendome peep toe pump. Nude shades range from a light blush to a dark chestnut color.
While Louboutin received all the publicity, they are not the first to take nude shades route in fashion. Italian lingerie label Cosabella launched the “Trenta Skin Tone” underwear collection and US brand Wacoal launched a line of “invisible” shapewear, earlier this year.
Shoes will go on sale exclusively at Christian Louboutin boutiques this month. Christian Louboutin also released an iTunes app called “Louboutin Shades,” to make sure you get the correct nude shade for you. App asks you to take a picture of your foot and it matches your skin shades to the correct nude shoe shade.
