More Than Just Soles: Louboutin Branches Into Beauty

Well, it's about time! Christian Louboutin has finally announced that his footwear (and handbag) empire will be expanding into the beauty market — meaning it's only a matter of time before his cult of followers will be able to swipe their tips and lips with shades that resembles their red soles. Partnering with Batallure Beauty LLC, Christian Louboutin Beauté is the first beauty venture for the designer. The designer tells WWD, well, not very much — he has refrained from making detailed comments about the products we can expect from the collection. “Very constructed, quite different and unexpected,” Louboutin told them. Consider us intrigued.

Christian Louboutin Beauté promises to fully align with the luxury feel of the iconic footwear and accessories collections. We're curious about how his trademark red sole is going to translate here (all-red packaging or perhaps only rouge shades in the line?), but we suppose we'll just have to wait and see. Having recently celebrated a 20th anniversary, expect the brand to have a just-as-thrilling 21st, as the beauty products will debut in late 2013. (WWD)
