First Christian Louboutin beauty boutique
Only a Parisian designer, who creates red sole shoes and flawless shades of nail polish, can without much effort envision a phenomenal store...
Christian Louboutin had announced a grand opening of its first beauty boutique, which is also his hundredth boutique in Paris. Located in the Passage Vero-added, which dates from the 19th century, a new sophisticated boutique concept fits in this Parisian neighborhood, next to the first men's and women's boutique of the brand, which opened in 1991 and 2011. Mr. Louboutin’s new space is described as a unique small shop or a large temple, entirely dedicated to beauty.
New Parisian boutique dedicated solely to beauty, emphasizes his new collection of 30 nail polishes, which are designed in collaboration with renowned interior designer, architect Pierre Jovanovic. Paying tribute to Louboutin’s bottles of nail polish, Jovanovic said: "When I spoke to Christian, we worked together on the global aesthetic concept. He showed me his bottles of nail polish, which are crowned with refined closures that have intriguing proportions. I immediately thought it would be good to create a modern space between elements of historical Paris, with code design that redefines a new approach to aesthetic beauty, which is very dear to Christian Louboutin ". He added that he wanted people to be drawn to showcases in which the products are exposed, guided by the idea that they have a chance to see something different, they have not seen before. For them, the new Christian Louboutin boutique is a place of dreams, which creates a sense of magic.
The entrance to this debut beauty boutique is enticing visitors to come and take a peek inside lighted rooms, with silky matte white walls, which are decorated with small shelves where Louboutin Nail Colour nail polishes are displayed as unique works of art. Behind every bottle, color changes and creates a kaleidoscope effect. The decor is dramatized with a hole in the ceiling on the first floor, which culminates in the projection of the open sky and clouds, creating the illusion of skylights. Hainaut blue stone floors, wooden pieces of furniture and walls are inspired by the texture of red pieces of Wedgwood china.
Slim staircase with curved copper fence takes you to a private loft that resembles a woman's boudoir, with powdery pink walls, comfortable sofas and scattered places with a strong color. Offering a more intimate experience, this is a private loft space where Christian shares his feelings and visions of beauty. His private collection of Kachina dolls that resemble the latest Tribalou collection is displayed here.
