Christian Louboutin Loubounight Laminato Clutch
Typically Christian Louboutin is known for his shoe designs. Oh boy, does he know how to design shoes! Those trademark red leather soles make his line unmistakable. So what happens when Christian Louboutin designs a handbag? He’s been doing it for quite some time now, but I have to be honest, I don’t think his handbag designs have quite the same “kick” as his shoe designs do. Let’s take a look at the Loubounight Laminato Clutch I have pictured above, for example. Its a whimsical little evening bag made of gorgeous nappa leather. Its even topped with his signature clasp which is shaped like a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes (complete with red soles). I like the ruched body of this bag and the gorgeous red lining. I even like the color pictured here, which is called Pewter. And yet, something seems to be missing from this bag. Is the design too simple? Does it need some sort of adornment? I really can’t seem to place my finger on it. I guess for now, it will just have to be cute enough just the way it is. What do you all think?
The Christian Louboutin Loubounight Laminato Clutch measures 8″ x 5.25″ x 2.5″ and is made of nappa leather. The evening bag retails for $795, which isn’t too bad considering the materials that were used. It is available on Pre-Order over at Saks.com. And guess what! They are currently offering free rush delivering on all orders over $150!
