Inspired by our very own capital!

Christian Louboutin, the world-renowned designer best known for his iconic red-lacquered soles, has dropped a new line of bags and guess what? They take inspiration from Manila, our country's ever-bustling capital! The collection is aptly named Manilacaba.

Christian Louboutin worked with the GREAT Women Brand Platform in the Philippines. Two totes have been released, both done in a curated mix of traditional weaves and bearing our busy streets' signature jeepney.

A peek inside reveals more Pinoy-flavored touches: a colorful flurry of jeeps emblazoned with words like "Makati," "Philippines," "With Love," and "No Selfies."

The bag also features flat top handles and a lobster clasp closure. Plus, it comes with a removable shoulder strap for when you want to keep your hands free!

If you recall, the designer himself paid Manila a visit back in November last year where he was seen attending events and spending time with some of the country's A-listers, including Heart Evangelista.

This isn't the first time Christian has chosen to highlight a certain culture. 2017 saw a celebration of Mexican craftsmanship via the Mexicaba handbag, a tote he designed in collaboration with the artisans of Taller Maya, a foundation that works to preserve traditional, local craftsmanship and ensure the long-term economic empowerment of Mayan artisans.

The Manilacaba totes are currently sold out on both Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman's online shops, so keep an eye peeled for any restocks!
