As high-end handbags go, backpacks must be difficult to design. As a shape, everyone has carried a backpack, but most people only have experience with them as low-cost book-schleppers from their school daze. That means that designers have to lean really hard into a juvenile reference or steer entirely clear of it in order to be successful, and I think we know which way the Christian Louboutin Valou Backpack has gone.
Taylor Swift is not someone who pops up on PB very frequently, despite the fact that she does lay claim to a respectable designer bag stash. And yet, here’s Taylor leaving the gym in West Hollywood carrying a dark green Christian Louboutin Farida Tote – a bag I personally think is pretty underrated, though I definitely prefer the Farida in its multi-tone variations.
Last night, sometimes totally unexpected happen: the Real Housewives of Orange County went someplace cold. Canada, to be exact, after a quick explanation that Lydia is Canadian so they all must go to Canada. Yes, that was the entire explanation for the big group vacation, and as far as I can remember, the first time the excursion was even mentioned was approximately 30 seconds before they all boarded the limo for the airport.
It should surprise exactly no one that Christian Louboutin was well-represented on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet. Even for celebs who punted on the event’s punk theme (and there were a lot of them who didn’t exactly go for the gusto), adding a pair of Louboutin’s many spiked and studded heels or toting one of his various sharp-edged clutches was a quick way to give a nod to the punk exhibit without actually having to take too many risks or commit to a full look, which is the route that both Miranda Kerr and Jessica Alba went with their Christian Louboutin Marquise Spiked Clutches.
Former Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel was recently spotted carrying a Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Shoulder Bag while schlubbing through puddles in NYC. I don’t particularly love Bethenny’s ensemble here, for reasons you can probably guess, but I’ll take a fab, bow-adorned Christian Louboutin bag over a pair of Louboutin’s fab-but-foot-slaying heels any day.
I think that Rue La La may have just hit the mother lode. Today’s sale features discount Christian Louboutin shoes (there are a few bags too!) and ladies, it’s unbelievable. Think basic black styles that never go on sale, plus seasonal merchandise you might have missed out on. There are a handful of items from the coveted spike collection, too. I won’t waste any more of your time – get on over to Rue La La when the sale begins at 11 AM EST and try your hand at scoring some brand new Louboutins.
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.
