Just in time for summer! Christian Louboutin is adding two high heel sandals to his Nudes Collection of shoes made in several different tones of “nude.” It’s a move that expands the options for women everywhere who want cute footwear in a hue that mirrors the naturally gorgeous color of their skin. Called the Christeriva and the Cherrysandal, they both feature an open toe and ankle straps — but, overall, they have different vibes!
On the left, above, is the Cherrysandal ($895, us.christianlouboutin.com), which is chunkier with a stacked heel and platform bottom. This sandal will add height to your frame — and drama to any outfit.
Shown on the right, the Christeriva ($875, us.christianloubtin.com) is a thin stiletto with espadrille laces for a look that’s sweet and elegant. This feminine shoe would be great paired with a flowy skirt, summer mini-dress or anything that could use a touch of whimsy.
They both offer a minimalist silhouette, elongating your legs by blending into your skin tone. It’s an old slimming fashion-stylist secret! And these two strappy options are perfect for summer. Joining other styles in the collection like his popular ballet flats, they’re bound to be a hit with celebrities. And with six different shade offerings, you’re sure to find one that works for you!
This isn’t the designer’s only new skin-tone-related launch making headlines. He also recently debuted the Metalinudes makeup collection of high-shine, shimmering metallic nail polishes and lip glosses.
It’s all great news for giving women more options — and embracing a new definition of what “nude” can mean when it comes to makeup and fashion.
