As one of the most fitting brand extensions of all time, WWD has learned that Paris-based designer Christian Louboutin, who will have a store in Chicago before the end of the year has partnered with Batallure Beauty to create Christian Louboutin makeup.
Christian Louboutin Beauté, is in the preliminary stages right now but will enter the market with some heavy substance in Late 2013. It's still away off, but Betallure has said that they will take the length of time necessary to make products that, like Christian Louboutin's Shoes, promise to break the mold. Later this year, Louboutin has confirmed he will open in Chicago as well as Rome; Istanbul; São Paulo, and Osaka.
