It’s a staple in women’s footwear. It goes with just about any outfit. Magazine editors implore every woman to invest in a pair. Yes, I’m talking about the nude pump. When it comes to the “nude” pump they’re always praised for their leg-lengthening capabilities, how they seemingly fade/blend into the skin, visually extending the line of the leg – and ultimately adding height to one’s frame. But does one
size shade fits all…? Nope! And Christian Louboutin seems to agree.
This is genius, and I can’t believe that a collection such as this hasn’t debuted sooner. Typically nude (or flesh-toned) pumps are in shades of beige, pale peach or tan tones, catering mostly to Caucasian women and would blend seamlessly against their skin, now those same pair of heels would contrast against a woman of color. This is why Christian Louboutin has created The Nudes Collection. A series of pumps available in 5 styles and in 5 shades (ranging from fair to deep chestnut).
This collection was released in the fall of 2013, awhile ago I know, but I only saw an interview where he discussed the collection and how the idea came about a couple of hours ago…check it out below.
