ShoNews - Christian Louboutin - Rouge Louboutin Nail Colour Collection
One can assume it's only a matter of time with before a fashion entrepreneur who has conquered one genre spreads the love a little further. And that's certainly the case with renowned shoe mogul, Christian Louboutin, taking his first step into the world of beauty with his own signature collection of nail polish.
And whilst it isn't quite ShoNews, it's most definitely worthy of an article all the same. WIthout further ado... the Rouge Louboutin nail colour collection!
For those Louboutin fans, you will have been eyeing up the famous red soled footwear for years, but just for any potential newcomers, first things first, a quick history lesson for those of you out there that might not be familiar with the story of the rouge's first origins. Our trip down memory lane dates back to a studio in Paris in 1993, as Christian worked on the Pensée, a shoe inspired by Andy Warhol's "Flowers". While contemplating that something was missing, his assistant simultaneously was painting her nails with a striking shade of red. Voilà, our favourite soles were born!
Louboutin explains "I am giving back to nails what the shoe took from the nails many years ago." Thus, certainly no stranger to lacquer, the legend has come full-circle with the debut Rouge Louboutin collection. Visit the Christian Louboutin website to view!
