Christian Louboutin’s various adventures in handbag design have been…well, adventures. While the designer is virtually a sure thing when it comes to footwear of almost any type, his bags tend to range from beautiful to head-scratchingly odd, often in the span of a single season. Certain types of whimsy and irreverence just play themselves out more proficiently on the structured backdrop of a shoe; a high-end bag requires a slightly different sensibility.

The Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Bag was immediately one of my favorites from the brand when the design made its debut over a year ago, and this latest version is almost as good as the original. I may be over the stud trend, but when combined with a ladylike bag like this one, I think they provide some welcome ideological contrast.

When Christian Louboutin gets something right, he gets it really right – not only are studs dead in the water, but I didn’t even like denim bags back when they were having a moment, which has now completely passed. Somehow, though, Louboutin manages to combine both on one bag in such a way that it makes me reconsider my stance on the trends. I’ll still take a pass, but if these studs had been leather-covered instead of shiny, this bag would have received my full support. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $1695.

  • MizzJ

    Oh yes, I totally agree with you on this, not being a huge fan of either studs or denim bags myself. Those have both been overdone, but this bag demonstrates that if done correctly and expertly, anything can seem fresh and new!
