One nude doesn’t fit all, and no-one knows that better than Christian Louboutin.
Following his 2013 ‘Nudes’ collection which featured stilettos in a spectrum of different skin tones, the designer has dropped a range of flats using the same concept.
The line takes Louboutin‘s SS16 “Solasofia” ballet flat and covers it in seven nude hues, aiming to meet a range of skin tones.
But if you ask Louboutin himself, the goal of his new shoes is simply to continue making the person wearing them feel great. “The nude collection is dedicated to people who want to have great legs, to have a great silhouette. Not necessarily to emphasize the shoe. If you look at the shoe, it looks good, if you don’t look at the shoe, if you don’t see the details, it’s all about the legs; it’s all about the person. It’s great for when you are just thinking of yourself; when you’re not thinking of being dressed. It keeps you undressed in a way.”
Made from a buttery napa leather, the shoe retails at $595 USD. For some, it’s a hefty price tag, but hopefully this is just the beginning when it comes to inclusive fashion.
It’s about time someone pushed the conversation forward.
