Celebrity Bag: Kim Kardashian carries Judith Leiber clutch

Kim Kardashian in a super tight pink dress, transparent pumps and statement sunglasses is not unusual. What is seemingly off in the picture is her Judith Leiber "Rainbow French Fries" minaudiere, not because she cannot afford it, but because it's the first time we've seen her carry a bag like that.

This Judith Leiber clutch costs a staggering $6,625 at Lane Crawford. It is fully encrusted with different colored Austrian crystals. Since the famed bag designer passed away a couple of months ago, owning one of her designs is like having a museum piece in your closet.

Christian Louboutin Manilacaba collection

We're excited to see the new limited edition bag collection from Christian Louboutin. The man behind the red sole is touring the world in search for bag inspiration. His first two were Africaba and then followed by Mexicaba. His third collection, the Manilacaba, is inspired by the richness in the culture of Manila and the Philippines as a whole.

The jeans and leather materials were fused with cloth hand woven by one of the Philippines' indigenous tribes. The embroideries were meticulously sewn by the women of Laguna. The colorful jeepney, on the other hand, is the Philippines' iconic national transportation. Of course, the logo and signature spikes of Christian Louboutin make the bags luxurious.

The "caba" collection is one of Christian Louboutin's charity works. Portion of the sales of the Manilacaba collection will be donated to Gender Responsive Economic Action for the Transformation of Women (GREAT) to help them continue supporting the women of the Philippines. The organization supports the craftsmanship and empowerment of Asian women artisans.
