Birthday presents are always great, but the one Christian Louboutin sent Heart Evangelista takes the cake. As a belated gift (she was born in February!), the famed designer shipped Heart one of his coveted bags all the way from France.
"My dear Christian sent me this super thoughtful gift as a belated birthday present. Merci, mon ami," Heart captions her Instagram post.
The piece, embellished with one of our country's ubiquitous jeepneys and made with local woven fabrics, comes straight out of Christian's Manila-inspired collection. It's officially dubbed the Manilacaba tote and is available to shop for $1590 (approximately P82,942) on his namesake label's official website.
"For his latest World Cabas collaboration, Christian Louboutin has teamed up with local women artisans in the Philippines to create a colorful stand-out everyday tote," the bag's description reads. "The Manilacaba's fabric and refined sequin and cotton embroideries in predominantly denim and white hues are sourced in the Philippines before being mounted in Italy with reinforced calfskin handles finished with a studded leather scarf."
We're excited to see what Heart would pair her roomy new arm candy with!
