Christian Louboutin is your Fairy Godfather as he bestows clutches fit for a ball

If red-soled heels cobbled by the French footwear connoisseur are amongst your must-haves, any pick from the designer’s latest enchanting Piloutin bags would be the arm candy to match. Spun from the most magical fairytale of all, Cinderella, these soft evening clutches bring to mind the sumptuous pillow on which her glass slipper was presented. Of course, Louboutin reimagined and instilled his exuberant touch to the tale: Badass spikes, glimmering strass and opulent embroidery.

Piloutin Spikes
Sugar, spice and everything wild are the elements of this daunting take on the Piloutin clutch. With 2,347 Christian Louboutin studs delicately applied by hand to create an unmistakable leopard motif, this bag means serious business. Sling on the palladium-finished chains and own the prowess of an exquisite leopardess — fierce yet feminine, audacious yet subtle.

Piloutin Strass
Shimmering and iridescent, the lustrous crystals of the Strass that shift in shades of pale pink to midnight blue is reminiscent of an open ocean. Each crystal heat-fixed onto black suede calfskin by Italian artisans, the handbag illuminates light from every angle — a fail-proof trick to elevate any look. Moody and seductive on the outside, the interior unfolds Louboutin's signature red lambskin with delicate marbles incorporated into its lining for plush tactility. Beautiful inside out.

Piloutin Maharaja
Christian Louboutin's ardour for dazzling colours and sparkles began when his eye was caught by a majestic embroidery shop in Mumbai. Paying homage to the decadent flair of classic Indian craftsmanship, the Piloutin Maharaja is swathed in sequins, beads and ornate hand embroidery. Each exquisite clutch is one of a kind as it features a unique combination of cuts from ribbons Louboutin collected on his trips to India. Feel like a queen hailed from an exotic kingdom with one on your lap.
