One of the first women’s bags imagined by Christian Louboutin, the Artemis returns with renewed dynamism for Spring/Summer 2017. Inspired by the Greek goddess of the same name, the huntress and her portrayal gave rise to the first Artemis design in 2007. This original creation, an elegant and simple bag, drew the eye unexpectedly to the wearer’s shoulder with whimsical embellishments including a bold flock of feathers, splashy fringe or mixed spike embellishments, demonstrating the designer’s delight in highlighting the female form, defining and celebrating the line of the silhouette.
For the new season, a collection of three distinct Artemis straps inspired by the original design have been created, which allow the wearer the play with, and take control of, their uniquely personal style. Sophisticated and artfully detailed, Artemistrass, Africartemis and Artemis by Night, encourage experimental reinvention, having the ability to pair easily and interchangeably with Louboutin’s newest classic, the Paloma bag, available in sizes ranging from a tiny Nano to a generously sized Large, as well as a Paloma Clutch perfect for evening.
