When talking Christian Louboutin’s, you can’t leave out the shoes and bags. The designer references nature throughout this collection, with aquamarine and Amazonian motifs, textures and patterns. As always, it’s the minor details on a Louboutin that make the biggest impact. As you’ll see in the hand-placed crystals on the Dorissima Clair Strass Pump. You’ll notice the bead work on the Tipika Gab Brode Sandal as well.
If you prefer to carry a shoulder or crossbody bag, the Triloubi is a sleek everyday option. The three zipper compartments are spacious enough to keep you organized and still fit all the essentials. The Eloise Tote features the signature spiked Louboutin bow you’ll recognize from one the brand’s popular Sweet Charity design. All three new options are both visually striking and practical.
Louboutin continues his trajectory to expand the brand’s line of handbags. The spring efforts include the Paloma Tote, the Triloubi Crossbody and the Eloise Tote. The Paloma is the most structured handbag we’ve seen from the brand, and it features a portfolio interior. Inspired by Louboutin’s love for Parisian cabaret showgirl, the Paloma is equal parts edgy and feminine with its signature spikes.
If I may take a moment to obsess over what I believe to be the standout piece in this collection: the leopard pony hair and mesh So Baker Specchio Knot Pony Sandals. (Amanda said I could pull these off, and that’s all the reassurance I need). There’s a lot going on for one sandal, but they’re sexy and so striking– basically everything the Louboutin brands stands for!
The devil is always in the details when it comes to Christian Louboutin’s bags and shoes, and it’s mostly due to the designer’s knack for combining ornate patterns and textures into one smooth, elegant whole. Louboutin’s Spring 2016 collection is especially exciting because we have three new bag styles to look forward to (and, of course, an array of fancy footwear).
