Christian Louboutin founded his company on footwear, but over the past few years, the red-soled shoe master has begun spreading his talents to other sectors of the fashion industry. Louboutin has found his footing when it comes to handbags, and every season, his designs are more covetable than the last. For Fall 2015, Louboutin took opted for a bit of a blast from the glam past with his accessories, including the Lucky L Hobo.

Louboutin Lucky L Hobo

When I wrote about Louboutin’s fall collection early in the summer, I’ll admit, I had mixed feelings about the Lucky L Hobo. There’s an overwhelming amount of studding all over the bag, plus long fringe detailing on both the front and back. I’m happy I got my hands on it when I did, though, because my mixed feelings quickly changed to certainty.

Louboutin Hobo fringe

The Lucky L is a new line of handbags to the Loubotuin family, and it includes bucket bags with ornamentation like fringe, fur bucket bags and studs, as well as the studded-and-fringed Lucky L Hobo. As soon as I picked up the bag, I noticed it was quite heavy, but other than that, I loved it.

By now, you’re all well aware of the enduring micro bag trend, and while I don’t mind switching my bag to a micro option every now and then, overall, they are not practical for a woman who doesn’t want to change her bag with every outfit. The Lucky L Hobo packs the aesthetic punch of an evening clutch without sacrificing interior space.

I chose to carry this bag day and night, it made all the statement I was looking for and I loved every second of it.

Buy your own Lucky L Hobo for $2,595 via Christian Louboutin.

    Way too busy. I say ditch the fringe, make the entire bag with smooth leather, and keep the studs.
    Better yet, just create the bag out of smooth leather and ditch the fringe. Keep the hardware.
    Wait…just ditch the bag altogether.

      LMAOOO! Come on guys, play nice. Ill say your first option – ditch the fringe, smooth leather, keep the studs. Or keep only the studs on the sides, ditch the fringe and middle studs. well, we’ve gone and redesigned the whole bag now.

    Oh my, way too busy for me. Curious to hear what others will say about it.

  • Jen

    Yikes. Hard pass.

  • Dylan Propst

    Way too much. Get rid of the studs and it would be cute. Love the fringe, but I can only imagine how heavy that bag would be.

  • it’s a no for me.

  • Gpc

    It looks great – love it! Esp. as you stated – a statement piece to go from day to night and with anything.

  • anon

    An OUT for me. This is definitely one of those bags where it really has to cater to your tastes. Not universal or lasting. Like what everyone is saying, its just so…busy and very in your face.

  • Y Ajayi

    A clutch this is not, it’s massive. It’s a hobo bag covered in bells and whistles.

  • laura

    Definitely something I wouldn’t buy. This is too much… too much fringe, too many studs and a little too big and too expensive for something too trendy.

  • I’d love it more without the fringe. It is a very busy bag, but the neutral black color kinda saves it.

  • Immodest Goddess

    He isn’t nailing anything. Sorry.

  • Smithy

    Hate it. Tacky looking.

  • The Rice Thins Gown

    Not my style. I definitely prefer a more structured bag and you lost me at the fringe.

  • Kate

    This is a joke, right?

    • JH

      This has to be a joke.

  • JC

    The shoes looks so painful… may going to have bunion later…not worthy :(

  • Katherine-Christian is a great shoe designer but his bags are really out there with the proverbial pixies!

  • Amazona

    Hedgehog bag :’D
    WAAAY too much going on. And I can only imagine how those studs can wreak havoc on any sensitive materials and fabrics…

  • Lisa

    Looks like a stripper peeking out from behind a curtain. Fringe OR studs….

  • The bag is very eighties glamrock. But I couldn’t rock that bag in daily life. Your shoes though!

  • Guest

    He nailed it alright.. About a hundred times.. With the sharp part of the nail facing out…

  • Suzanne

    Um. I have possibly never seen a worse-looking bag.

  • Lily

    Monsier Louboutin should stick to making his beautiful shoes. Every handbag I have seen, from his collection, has been downright tacky.
