Stuck in the leg­endary traf­fic jams of Manila, on a per­sonal visit last year, Chris­tian Louboutin was stunned by the ex­pan­sive joy flow­ing from ev­ery­where. The sought-af­ter French shoe de­signer was im­pressed with the way peo­ple cel­e­brated life through the lo­cal jeep­neys— adorned with splashes of bright colour and shiny dec­o­ra­tions—find­ing their way through the city’s dense traf­fic. His ex­pe­ri­ence in­spired him to pro­duce the lim­ited edi­tion Chris­tian Louboutin Mani­la­caba tote that is a vi­brant ren­di­tion of the bustling Manila beat. Crafted in part­ner­ship with GREAT (Gen­der Re­spon­sive Eco­nomic Ac­tion for the Trans­for­ma­tion of Women, an ASEAN ini­tia­tive to em­power Asian woman ar­ti­sans), 10 per cent of the ben­e­fits of ev­ery Mani­la­caba pur­chased will be do­nated to the ini­tia­tive.
