Christian Louboutin has been working hard to bring the awareness of its handbag collections up to par with its world-famous shoes, and the line is well on its way. The brand has transitioned well, bringing Louboutin’s signature irreverence to all of its accessories, and as a result, the brand’s handbag following continues to grow. I love a red-soled shoe, but I’ve been finding myself loving Louboutin’s bags lately as well. One of the best from the designer is the classic Sweet Charity handbag, and I’m digging this season’s design even more.
The Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Sotto Pelle is the updated version to the original, featuring sleek construction and a new leather, exclusive for Christian Louboutin, that merges quality and smoothness. This bag is built around a wooden frame to give more structure and the edging includes a pique weave which creates a slight geometric pattern. The bow on the front of the bag has been tweaked as well, with rounded studs and contrasting leather.
I adore the sleekness and glazed finish, and while the bag has been updated from the initial Sweet Charity design, it remains close to the original. I continue to lean towards shoulder/cross body bags as my new go-to, and with the holiday season upon us, I am dreaming of a very Christian Louboutin Christmas. Price is $1,695 via Christian Louboutin.
