What's In My Handbag: Louis Vuitton x Christian Louboutin

March 01, 2015

I'm a huge fan of Louis Vuitton (how could I not be when they spoil me with gifts and parties?) especially their artist collaborations which not only makes their handbags even more collectible but also distinguishes their limited editions from their basic monogrammed bags. Every special edition this illustrious French luggage label designs is presented ahead of its release in Kuala Lumpur to mummy for her consideration (as Louis Vuitton in K.L only import small numbers of each design for exclusivity reasons).  When the Louis Vuitton x Christian Louboutin collaboration was announced, mummy ordered the shopping tote for our collection. It was only when I got back to K.L in February that I got to finally see our new baby in person, which I'm thrilled to show you together with some of my latest acquisitions, in a What's In My Handbag post...!

Christian Louboutin's iconic red and use of gold studs.

As much as I like the visual effect of the red soles, Louboutin heels have never been for me - personally, I think they're cripplingly uncomfortable to walk in (flat feet never fared well in high heels) and overrated, plus I've long since given up sacrificing style for comfort - flats and trainers all the way, I have nothing to prove to anyone. Monsieur Louboutin himself said "...it is not my job to create something comfortable...my priority is design, beauty and sexiness,...comfort is not my focus." This handbag is my compromise between my love for design classics and utilitarian function.

And such function...! The shopping tote is designed with many compartments for the organised woman; with two sections in the tote divided by a zippered pouch, and three side pockets for stashing phones, business cards, notebooks and the like. In Louboutin red, naturally.

Which of course I make the most of by cramming the entire contents of my life into its supple pouches.

Even the dustbag for the Louis Vuitton x Christian Louboutin collaboration handbags have a little special touch - I love little things like these, it really shows how much thought and care goes behind the design.

Do you have any favourite designer and/or artist collaborations? Are there any upcoming collaborations - Louis Vuitton or not - that you're anticipating and keeping an eager eye on? What do you think of this collaboration and should I just bite the bullet and shove my stiff flippers into a pair of red-soled shoes? Answers on a postcards or leave me a comment, below! x
