Legendary footwear designer Christian Louboutin once again has a fully fledged range of handbags to accompany his celebrated shoes for autumn winter 2012. We've picked out a few of the stand-out pieces, which include dazzling new colourways for the Farida, and stylish studded clutch bags.

Christian Louboutin commissioned photographer and long-term creative associate Peter Lippmann to produce some scenic and dreamlike images to introduce the new collection of shoes and handbags. His artwork features key pieces from the collection in the designer's native Paris, with bags and shoes blown up to giant proportions and sitting among Notre Dame's gargoyles and on the fountains of the Place de la Concorde.
