Louboutin and The Red Sole

It all started with a chance encounter with a stroke of red nail colour.

In 1992 Christian Louboutin was creating the Pensée shoe. Having sketched the shoe perfectly, he was disappointed when he saw the prototype - a certain 'je ne sais quoi' was missing. Whilst racking his brains on what was lacking, he spotted his assistant painting her nails. The designer spontaneously grabbed the nail polish and proceeded to paint the bottom of the shoe. Et voilà - the signature rouge Louboutin sole was born.

Twenty two years later, Louboutin exclaims he "is giving back to nails what the shoe took from the nails many years ago."

Louboutin On Beauty

Why are you entering the beauty world?
Over the years, I have observed several signs pointing me towards beauty. I realised that people’s image of my brand could already incorporate beauty and it became clear that both my shoes and beauty serve to reinforce the idea of femininity. Thus, beauty became a natural next step.

Why are you entering the nail colour category first?
There are two reasons - colour has always been a very important part of my design process. I love when I create something and a woman makes it her own; when she wears colour in a way that I never would have imagined. Additionally, when a woman puts on a pair of my shoes, she looks at herself, her posture, the curve of her body, and the line of her legs. The toes are the endpoint of this gracious movement. Similarly, fingernails are the finishing touch to a movement that starts with the shoulder and moves to the arms, and finally to the fingertips.
