Christian Louboutin

You can spot Christian Louboutin‘s red lacquered soles anywhere, but differentiating between the brand’s various classic pumps is a bit more challenging. For a footwear-focused brand like Louboutin, attention to the slightest changes in toe box, pitch (the angle at which a high heel rises) and heel is what it takes to differentiate the most popular styles and decide which is right for you.

Let’s be real: Blake Lively is most likely an android created in a lab somewhere to a) school us on the privileged-yet-tormented lives of the Upper East Side elite, and a) shame us for being physically and fashionably basic in every conceivable way.

By now, we all know the name and we can spot a signature red bottom a mile away, and deservedly so–Christian Louboutin shoes are held in high regard in the luxury footwear market. The brand has millions of diehard fans who return again and again, and any Louboutin convert can tell you why they love the signature shoes.

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.

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 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.

Christian-Louboutin-Lipstick

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.

What Fits Feature

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.

Christian-Louboutin-Limited-Edition-Scarabee-Nail-Polish

Christian Louboutin‘s nail polish line was a hit as soon as it landed in stores, and now the brand is venturing outside of its standard colors and finishes for a few limited edition polishes. The Christian Louboutin Scarabee Collection consists of two duochrome and one multichrome polish, all in special packaging with gold tops.

Christian Louboutin Pre-Fall 2015 Dollyparty 120mm Suede Nuit Gold

Nostalgia was certainly brewing when Christian Louboutin created this Pre-Fall 2015 collection. In the collection, you can see influences from grunge, 80s techno and the 60s bohemia.

The footwear this season will be full of details that give hint to specific time periods.

As you might imagine, after six years of writing about handbags every day, it’s not often that I see a bag from a major brand and think, Huh, that’s completely different than anything I’ve ever seen.

Saint Laurent’s Sac de Jour has quietly-yet-deliberately infiltrated the hearts and minds of celebrities over the past year. It’s not that the bag itself is remarkable; it’s really not, which may be part of the appeal.
