While Christian Louboutin is one of the most trusted names in women’s footwear, we’ve come to trust him with more than just our feet. With a razor-sharp eye for the new and the unexpected, Louboutin has secured a place as one of our favorite bag designers as well. His Fall/Winter 2015 collection is overflowing with wildly creative accessories that beg for a closer look. Working with technical fabrics and unique details, like neoprene materials and swirly metallic patent leathers, the designer manages to capture that rarefied space where the street meets high fashion.
Just when you thought spikes were played out, Louboutin has refreshed the trend by splashing colorful leather goods and crossbody bags with rubber spikes, transforming them from tough to touchable. For the streetwear crowd, there are lush fur backpacks, a blinged-out version of the popular ‘Sweet Charity’ backpack, and multi-colored neoprene crossbody bags. Sophisticated style seekers will love Louboutin’s jaw-dropping dégradé totes, gorgeous fringed hobos, and gleaming patent-leather clutches.
While handbags play a large part in the collection, Louboutin’s footwear selection should not be overlooked. Included in this release are elegant calfskin heels with braided gold-chain details, sky-scraper heels with woven-leather uppers, stunning ankle boots traced with micro studs, and more.
