It always excites me when Christian Louboutin cooks up a great (read, somewhat restrained and sophisticated) new bag, and this one is the pinnacle of unfettered chic. Featuring cutout grids interjected with a weave of silver and gold metallic thread, the Rougissime has such beautifully detailing it’s transfixing without being overwhelming.
It’s also highly functional, with two well-sized interior compartments along with a roomy slide pocket in the back. I’ll be primarily using this as a crossbody bag, but it’s a major perk that the leather strap can be removed to use as a full-sized clutch. This bag is just as great for busy days as it is for leisurely evenings. Christian Louboutin bag at Barneys New York for $1,695.
Wear with: Pick up on the gold-tone hardware with Lanvin’s perfected wedge sandals, now in metallic lizard-effect leather. On NET-A-PORTER for $750.
