Shoe de­signer ex­traor­di­naire Chris­tian Louboutin—per­haps in­spired by his visit to our coun­try in Novem­ber of last year—re­leased a pair of hand­bags made with Philip­pine tex­tiles. Named Mani­la­caba, the col­lec­tion con­sists of two totes, one in a blue, black, green, and red colour palette, and the other in denim and white with a brighter ikat pat­tern. Both are char­ac­terised by a jeep­ney mo­tif, the in­te­ri­ors em­bla­zoned with even more jeep­neys bear­ing place name signs such as “Makati,” “Manila,” and the play­ful “No Self­ies.” Flat-top han­dles bear­ing spiked ends and a re­mov­able shoul­der strap for ver­sa­til­ity make th­ese bags easy to carry around, while a lob­ster lock clo­sure en­sures valu­ables are kept safe. The totes were a hit with fash­ion­istas; they are avail­able in lim­ited quan­ti­ties on the Neiman Mar­cus and Bergdorf Good­man web­sites as of writ­ing.
