The mythology and culture of Ancient Egypt have influenced both the life of designer Christian Louboutin and his work in many ways. Most recently, he found his muse in a key piece of Egyptian iconography, the scarab beetle. This creature, sacred to the Pharaohs, led him to create his latest contribution to the world of beauty: the Christian Louboutin Scarabee Limited-Edition Collection.
“They can look beautiful and reflective under the bright sun but also look like a precious jewel by night,” says the designer.
The limited-edition comes in three colors, where the pigment and pearls have the ability to reflect two or more shades at once: Scarabee I- a soft metallic flecked with shades of rose and gold, Scarabee II – a deep blue with flashes of purple, emerald, and gold, Scarabee III – a bronze with highlights of green and blue.
The bottles are topped with a tall, copper gold cap, and are encased in brown cartons adorned with a copper gold scarab motif with a cut-out window to reveal the nail color nestled within.
This is another chapter in the marriage of fashion and beauty for the brand as well, as Louboutin developed a new patent leather- Scarabee Ocean-Amazone, a shiny blue-to-green patent degrade- directly inspired by Scarabee II Nail Color.
