Christian Louboutin is adding more shades to the brand's Nude Collection to include a wider variety of skin tones, Dazed Digital reports. The new collection will be in stores in August, and will include seven options from fair to chestnut. Christian Louboutin is reportedly the "first major luxury label to make its products suitable for women of colour" by recognizing that the word "nude" isn't synonymous with beige or peach, according to Dazed.
The brand is promoting the line with the hashtag #NudesForAll, and will also introduce two new styles to the Nude Collection: the Deepik, a peep-toe with scalloped edges, and a classic stiletto called Dorissima. These new styles will be available in all seven shades.
