Christian Louboutin is launching a beauty line.

The shoe designer has confirmed he is branching out into the cosmetics world. He is excited about the new products, but doesn’t see them as a huge step away from his usual work.

“Twenty years ago I started what I thought would be a small adventure, which ended up becoming a company. The beauty adventure is a natural extension for someone like me, who likes to empower women and to be a part of creating beauty seems like the right next step,” he said.

The line will be called Christian Louboutin Beauté and is in association with Batallure Beauty. The company is thrilled to have landed such an iconic collaborator.

“We are delighted to collaborate with Christian Louboutin to translate his world-renowned creative vision into the luxury beauty world,” chairman and co-founder Robin Burns said.

“Wearing a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes completely transforms a woman and Christian will bring that same transformative quality to women through his beauty products.”

At the moment there are no details of what exactly will be included in the line, but the range will be available to buy at some point next year.

Christian Louboutin understands how women want to see themselves – stylish, compelling and beautiful,” Batallure Beauty’s president and CEO Sam Ghusson said. “We look forward to partnering with Christian in building Christian Louboutin Beauté into a significant business.”
