Christian Louboutin has just created another unmistakable statement-making fashion accessory, and it’s not any of his signature red-soled shoes. In case you missed it, the French fashion designer visited the Philippines last November for an intimate party, and, just like any of us, he found himself stuck in Manila traffic. Christian was stunned by what surrounded him: Colorful jeepneys and shiny additions—leading him to the idea of creating accessories to celebrate his recent trip. Hence, this bag collection called Manilacaba.
"I have always been captivated by the Philippines’ beauty: The perfect combination of sparkles, Mother of Pearl and shells. But this project really started to make sense to me when I discovered the richness and the quality of craftsmanship the GREAT Women in ASEAN artisans were able to develop," said Christian Louboutin in a statement.
Take a peek into the two-piece collection in this gallery.
