Christian Louboutin Schoolita Framed Bag


Christian Louboutin makes fierce shoes. Handbags, well, not so much. Some of the label's evening clutches are cute and stylish, but the day bags have left much to be desired. The Schoolita Framed Bag is one notable exception. I can never resist a framed top bag, and this one is actually very well designed. The framed top is limited to a half-moon along the top edges. That leaves the sturdy top handles free to be done in more suitable calfskin leather. The pleating detail along the front and rear exterior is a feminine touch that softens the angular silhouette, and tonal patches along the bottom edges provide additional strength to the overall structured look of the 'Schoolita'. A magnetic closure and signature Louboutin red-lined interior with small storage pockets round out the bag's fatures. Measurements are a surprisingly roomy 15 x 12 x 5.5. My favorite aspect of the 'Schoolita' is its' demure navy marine color. It helps the bag stretch its' day-time usefullness. I'd love to see this design done in black python as an alternative to the basic evening clutch. I just happen to prefer handbags to clutches when I go out at night, that's all.

P.S. - Ditch the dangling gold-tone logo charm. It looks childish and is totally unnecessary.
