Have enough red-soled heels in your closet? (I think we all do.) It’s time to start getting hip to Christian Louboutin bags. We weren’t always so enthusiastic about the sexy shoe guru’s handbags, but the brand’s new collection of oversized clutches is absolutely divine! Yes, yes, I know I love mini bags, and my enthusiasm for them isn’t waning. I just also happen to love enhanced shapes. Right now, it’s all about the super-big or insanely tiny; nothing in between will do.
Never one to shy away from the bold, Louboutin’s latest are exaggerated and enlarged: clutches featuring illuminating iridescence (think a blue-to-green patent inspired by Egypt), scarlet snakeskin, and dégradé gunmetal spikes, as seen on the Loubiposh. If it’s something more workday-friendly you desire, the Passage Shopping tote now features a flutter of fringe, a surprisingly nice counterpart to its cutout handle. Unapologetic in their own chic way, the Fall ’15 bags remind us that Monsieur Louboutin is all about setting trends, not following them. And I will follow him, wearing my red-soled heels, just about anywhere. Christian Louboutin Fall 2015 available soon at Barneys New York.
