As much as I adore Christian Louboutin shoes, I can’t always get into his handbags. Sure there have been some winners, but there have been a few head-scratchers too. For someone who loves with a passion, studs, spikes, chains and all things rocker-esque on a bag, the Christian Louboutin Artemis Spike-studded Metallic Python shoulder bag is an example of a bag that’s just doing too much. It’s a mini shoulder bag. It’s a flap clutch. It’s snakeskin. It’s got a chain strap. It’s shoulder decoration. It’s medieval weaponry.
I’m not sure where it really fits in the bag category – it’s not large enough to be a classic shoulder bag (as seen on the model below, it JUST fits under the shoulder, with very little ‘breathing room’). And the small metallic (Muschio silver-colored) Indonesian python body with black patent leather trim on the flap looks fragile against the top-heavy shoulder detail. There’s a mix of long and short spiky studs and crystal embellishments atop a flat leather shoulder pad and detachable silver chain strap. I’m all for edge but like I said, this handbag is doing way too much.
