Most companies do not seem to understand what “nude” stands for. Even though nude colour means the colour of the skin, all fashion products seem to think skin comes in one colour, white.
This has sparked a lot of controversy from the women of colour and for the first time a company got the message. Shoes in real nude by Christian Louboutin have been released to make women with different colours very happy.
The nude collection is called Solasofia and they are made from a new matte nappa material which makes the legs of whoever is wearing them appear to be longer. They are very simple in design and can work with casual outfits as well as more fancy ones. After all, they so perfectly match any skin colour that once someone wears them it will look as if they’re wearing no shoes.
They come in a large variety of colours. What is amazing about the collection is that they are not only bound to stereotypical skin colours (aka black, white, brown, yellow ect). They actually have tones for pretty much any skin colour. Like foundations they come in colours with different tins so whichever category your skin colour seems to fit into, there is a shoe for you.
Even though most of us can’t really afford to get our hands on a real nude by Christian Louboutin, we can still appreciate the idea. After all, this is the first time a company released several tinted products labelling them nude to fit the skin colour of any woman.
The real nude by Christian Louboutin collection is bound to open up a new door in the fashion industry where they can no longer say nude colour is just one colour. I mean if you really want to make a cream coloured anything, just call it cream and be done with it.
