Christian Louboutin Elisa Bag

Christian Louboutin may be famed for his bright red soles, but did you know that the French luxury shoemaker also has a range of leather goods like the Paloma which has gone on to become one of their signature silhouettes?

And for Spring-Summer 2020, there’s a new addition that’s set to become a new icon of the house, and named after Monsieur Christian Louboutin’s muse, Elisa Sednaoui, an actress, model, and social entrepreneur of Egyptian, French and Italian descent. Interestingly, the Elisa was inspired by ancient Egypt (you will find several codes that pay homage to the ancient civilisation), while carrying an air of French elegance thanks to the addition of contemporary elements like the jewel-like chain strap. It’s also the very embodiment of Italian craftsmanship, evident in the quality leather and stitching that you will be able to appreciate when viewing the bags up close.

For starters, the bag is adorned with a gold-toned twist lock that’s reminiscent of a Pharaoh’s cartouche, finished with a delicate CL logo cut-out that sets the tone right from the get-go. Unlock the structured bag (its architectural lines do remind you of the Amon Temple in Luxor) and it will lead you to two accordion-like compartments that’s perfect for your daily needs, with a central zip compartment that provides extra security. Looking for the extra card slots in case you don’t wish to bring a wallet out? The Elisa Mini (19 cm by 13 cm) and Elisa Small (22 cm by 15 cm) come with 3 and 6 slots respectively, so you can rest assured.

Not only does the thick gold chain provide a luxurious touch, it comes with a drop length of approximately 55 cm, so you can easily sling the Elisa across the body or loop it twice and keep it under the arm. In total, you will find it available in three different sizes (there’s a Large that’s not pictured) for the shoulder bag, along with the Belt Bag which the lads can pull off as well.

And as far as the colours go,  you will be able to find the Elisa in Pale Grey, Pink, and of course the bold Louboutin Red that’s an absolute stunner. The good news? The Elisa has been launched online for those of you based in Singapore, while the boutiques will be launching them from 2 November onwards.
