Is it just me or has Christian Louboutin been a bit on the wild side lately? Metallic leathers, studs, bold hardware, exotic prints… the list goes on! They are certainly a far cry from the sweet little clutches with the shoe-shaped clasp I had started to grow accustomed to. Just between you and me though, I am really liking this path Christian Louboutin has been taking. Just take a look at the Christian Louboutin Marianna Rider Spikes Bag you see pictured here! This is an excellent example of the “new” face of Christian Louboutin!
Don’t let the stock photos fool you though, they don’t do this beautiful bag any justice whatsoever! This lovely black leather hobo is covered head to toe in silver-tone spikes and the shoulder strap is made up of three very chunky-looking chains. Not only do these details give this bag a look that is very biker girl-chic, they are very glamorous as well! My favorite part about this bag though is those extra-long tassels (of course)! I just love the way they look dangling down so gracefully. I think they really help soften the look, lending an element of softness to balance the hard spikes.
Yes, this bag is a bit pricey. But this is to be expected from this designer. If you’re willing to make the investment though, I think this bag would make an excellent bag for someone looking to add a little edge to their look!
