Give me a minute while I collect my thoughts. As soon as I came across this bag, I knew I had to write about it. But, guys, I am not even sure where to start.

It’s no secret that Christian Louboutin is known for show stopping stilettos. And while I am not so certain the Christian Louboutin Artemis Ostrich Feather Shoulder Bag will end up on my shoulder any time soon, it is quite the statement piece. One of the first things I found myself pondering was which celeb might rock something like this. This eccentric bag needs to rest on the shoulder of an equally as eccentric lady. Perhaps someone like Rihanna? This is a bag with personality!

It’s hardly worth talking about the black leather, golden hardware and red jacquard lining which sure, are all nice enough. But, the multicolor ostrich feather embellishment jumping off the page is all I can really focus on. This is the kind of bag that would be great to whip out when catching a show or attending some fancy schmancy event. With all that said I still can’t really make up my mind. What do you think is this a hit or a miss? Buy through Neiman Marcus for $2195.

    Kind of wonderful…..but it certainly would have to perch on a skinny shoulder peaking out of a skinny black dress

  • silverxuan

    I say a miss. Looks like a bird got struck by a confetti party popper!

  • EMCooper

    This bag is ready to party. I think it would put you in a festive mood whenever you took it out!

  • Laura

    IMO, it looks awful. But that’s just me.

  • Christina

    This is a hit. It looks like a fun feather stole. And it will look great on the shoulder of a young actress at a red carpet event. I was more thinking of Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez or similar – but I might be wrong here, I am not an expert on celebrity red carpet outfits.

    I had a bit of a chuckle from that… I think it’s cute… But would NEVER be caught dead in it..

  • SK

    It’s clearly a bit ridiculous, but I kind of love it for that!

  • nappy

    if the ostrich feathers were not given the whole multicolor confetti treatment, it could work… but the colors just make the whole bag distracting.. i’d rather have the Artemis with the spikes thing.. way sexy.. hahaha

    hideous …total miss they need to stop making bags

  • Jeloi

    Oh my God! this look like a head piece with a handbag attached to it!

  • abby

    fabulous. this would look great with simple pieces. a little black dress, a white (or any colour, pale versions of the colours in the ostrich feathers or just the same coulours) t-shirt and jeans, and simple black leather heels. if it wasn’t so expensive i’d go out and by it right now. make up stays simple, but you could still pull off a bold eye or a bold lip (not both!) hair stays sleek. pulled up or straight and swept to the side away from the feathers. god i really want this bag!

      typo! buy* not by haha.

  • fairlady

    It does look like a head piece! I didn’t realize Donatella was designing for CL….

  • FashionableLena

    I like it, but I’m not sure about how big it is. I don’t think that I could have it tickling my neck and face.
