Christian Louboutin is historically known for the gorgeous red bottom shoes he brilliantly crafts. However, did you know Christian Louboutin also makes bags? That’s right you read that correctly Christian Louboutin handbags are making waves and today I’m here to talk to you about everything you need to know about Christian Louboutin bags!

I have been a long time fan of Christian Louboutin shoes. I know people argue that they aren’t comfortable, but I strongly feel the opposite, and can wear my Louboutin heels for hours on end. But that is a topic for another day! 

With that being said, I remember when I first laid eyes on the Christian Louboutin bags, I became instantly obsessed! I knew I had to add a Christian Louboutin bag to my wardrobe.

Personally, I have 2 in my collection, one small crossbody bag (Sweet Charity bag) and one one giant bag (The Eloise bag). The Christian Louboutin bags are edgy, unique and are definitely built to last. As someone who owns many bags, my Christian Louboutin bags have held up remarkably over the last 5 years. 

The best Part is the price point isn’t as high as one might assume! 

History of Christian Louboutin bags

Christian Louboutin was founded in 1991, today, with over 150 shops worldwide you may be wondering if Christian Louboutin always carried handbags. Christian Louboutin first introduced handbags to his collection in 2003! 

12 years after the launch of his iconic signature red bottom brand, Louboutin thought it was time to expand into a new category: handbags. From Totes to Crossbody bags, Christian Louboutin offers a wide variety of bags to fit everyone’s needs!

I love how Christian Louboutin is always expanding and pushing the envelope. Recently, I wrote a review about the Christian Louboutin perfume I got a few months ago, but did you know he also has a makeup line, iconic lipsticks, nail polishes that mimics the red bottom color. How cool is that? 

Price point of Christian Louboutin bags?

One thing that often surprises people is the pring point of the Christian Louboutin bags. Retail price of Christian Louboutin bags start at $590 and preloved Christian Louboutin bags start at $330. One thing that’s important to note, is that Christian Louboutin shops often sell out of the handbags due to the relatively lower price point for a designer bag. However, they do a great selection of their handbags online that can be purchased. 

Many people expect Christian Louboutin bags to be very expensive, but actually I find the price point fair and on the more affordable end for luxury handbags, especially on the second hand market.

Is Christian Louboutin cheaper in Paris?

I have so many questions from people asking which brands are cheaper in Paris, I’ve written tons of articles about this topic. But in short, any brand that is created in Europe is cheaper in Europe than the USA due to shipping cost, import tax, and state tax. In addition if you purchase Christian Louboutin in Paris you will get the extra VAT tax back…Hello an additional 12% off

Yes, Christian Louboutin is cheaper in Paris, depending on the bag and the material used it can be anywhere from a hundred dollars to upwards of a thousand. Keep that in mind on your next shopping trip to Paris! Or Europe for that matter.
