Inspired by Egypt’s sacred scarab beetle, the muse of Christian Louboutin has brought forth the creation of Louboutin’s spectacular Scarabee collection. Blue green iridescence with flashes of violet, rose, gold and copper, all Scarabee pieces are deliciously eyecatching. Glimpses occur of crystalled heels, python sneakers and pumps, a small Paloma bag and multiple nailpolish shades – and we love them all!
Most accessible are the nail polish trio of Scarabee 1, 2 and 3. The blue/purple, green/copper and gold/pink tones are best enjoyed in sunlight where the multi faceted colours can shine to their fullest potential.
Daytime darlings too are the scarabee python pumps and sneakers (which I would love for daily wear) but the crystalled scarabee flats and heels can dazzle just as well in an evening setting, with gradient coloured crystals sparkling mesmerisingly like myriad coloured diamonds.
My absolute favourite Scarabee piece so far is the small Paloma bag which I WISH came in a medium size. It sold out fast on Net A Porter and is lurking around in rare quantities around the world – mostly in Europe due to its production in Italy and some shipping restrictions on the python material.
Covetable, beautiful and in Louboutin’s practical perfect Paloma style that includes a shoulder strap, it’s a perfect daytime purse or evening handbag – dressing up any little black outfit wonderfully.
The small Paloma Scarabee is described on Net A Porter as such :
Christian Louboutin’s ‘Paloma’ tote is impeccably crafted from iridescent python that shimmers from every angle. The well-organized interior has three leather-lined compartments and a handy pocket, while the patent-leather side panels add extra polish. Attach the shoulder strap or carry yours by the beige handles – they’re inspired by cabaret showgirls’ legs.
Ooh la la…. we absolutely loves everything about Louboutin’s Scarabee collection and hope there will be many more Scarabee delights in collections ahead. We’ll be there, wearing arm cuff by Elf Zhou, choker by Creepy Yeha, toile de jouy print basque bustier by Dita von Teese XXXtian and fainting with covetous joy.
