The devil is always in the details when it comes to Christian Louboutin‘s shoes and bags, 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).
Christian Louboutin’s first foray into beauty was nail polish, which made total sense–his famous shoes adorn and accent a woman’s feet, just as nail color so often does. Louboutin’s next beauty venture, lipstick, also makes a certain amount of sense–his signature color is a vibrant red, after all, and no place in beauty is the color more beloved than on the lips.
This post is almost a continuous stream of red carpet photos, with exactly two interruptions. (Some celebs didn’t attend film premieres this week, or maybe they were still wearing great shoes while doing other stuff, but that’s allowed.) In quasi-related news, it has recently dawned on me that Lily James and Lily Collins are two different people, and the former is dating one of my celebrity boyfriends, which instantly makes her my celebrity nemesis.
We recently brought you a sneak peek of what you can expect from Christian Louboutin in Spring 2016, and thankfully, some of these spring accessories have started to trickle into stores. Louboutin has a lot to offer this upcoming season, and I wanted to take a closer look at the Paloma Tote, which is the brand’s biggest Spring 2016 handbag debut.
Christian Louboutin founded his company on footwear, but over the past few years, the red-soled shoe master has begun spreading his talents to other sectors of the fashion industry. Louboutin has found his footing when it comes to handbags, and every season, his designs are more covetable than the last.
If you’re like me and tend to carry the entire inventory of your local CVS in your handbag, then you understand the dilemmas and struggles of buying a mini, micro or any other small-sized bag. Handbags are shrinking left and right, and it seems like a another half dozen popular designs get miniaturized every season.
Did you know that the shoe department of Saks Fifth Avenue’s flagship New York City store has its own zip code? It does, and trust me, it is that good. If you are in the New York area, plan a trip to the store and set aside a few hours to peruse the shoes. Of course, you can’t talk about shoes without mentioning the master himself: Christian Louboutin and to be honest, we think Mr. Louboutin’s bags have become essential in the accessory world as well.
The Christian Louboutin Spring Collection has arrived at Saks and each item is better than the next. From the perfect girly pink pump to an edgy black bag, you must check out all the Christian Louboutin spring arrivals that Saks has to offer. I was hard pressed to pick nine favorites, so make sure to check out the entire offering.

The Sweet Chairty Clutch is the perfect option when you are looking for an accessory that is both fun and dressy.
