From Red Soles to Red Lipstick: Christian Louboutin to Launch Cosmetics Line
Posted on May 14, 2012
After 20-years of huge success of his “red nail enamel” inspired red soles stilettos, the 49-year-old French footwear designer has announced that he will be expanding his line, and launching his cosmetics line sometime next year.
It was revealed that the collection will be in collaboration with Batallure Beauty, whose clients also include Madonna and Justin Bieber.
“It is not yet known what will be included in the range but it is expected that Louboutin’s signature scarlet will be a prominent feature – both in products and on packaging.”
Just as well, last month, Marc Jacobs revealed that he’s working on a cosmetics line to compliment his fragrance line.
Jacobs said: “I see make-up, fragrance – everything, really – as an opportunity. The idea of choosing a colour for your lip, or an eyeliner – it’s just such a delight. The ritual of waking up and making those choices is something people really enjoy.”
Knowing Marc Jacobs, you can tell it’s gonna be pretty (unlike his menswear), and knowing Louboutin, you know it’s gonna be…..fancy.
I am not really a big fan of Jacobs menswear, but I do like him as a designer, and I love his accessory. Regardless, I am really excited to see how things go for both of them.
Who are you most excited for? Jacobs or Louboutin?
