Have you ever seen a bag with studs implemented in the way Christian Louboutin did on his Artemis Python Shoulder Bag? Because I have not. In fact, this bag both intrigues me and worries me.
First off, I wonder about the reasoning for naming this bag the Christian Louboutin Artemis Studded Python Shoulder Bag, as Artemis comes from Ancient Greek Mythology. The daughter of Leto and Zeus, and the twin of Apollo, Artemis is the goddess of the wilderness, the hunt and wild animals, and fertility. So this bag’s gorgeous body and skin represents the beauty of Artemis while the massive spiked studs symbolize her being a huntress.

Imagine Artemis gallivanting through the wilderness with this metallic python shoulder bag with intense spiked studs all over the shoulder strap. Come to think of it, this bag gives intrigue while showing power, which is fitting.
In everyday life, the idea of this bag seems somewhat cool but I truly feel like it would hurt. I have a big head and what if I turn my head to the side and it lands on the shoulder strap? Or the fact that you truly can not hold the bag by the shoulder strap without putting yourself through some pain. I know Mr. Louboutin loves spikes, but I still don’t think they work in this fashion on a bag. Buy via NAP for $1,995.
