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.

Celebrity Bag: Priyanka Chopra carries a Jacquemus bag

Outside The View in N.Y.C., Priyanka Chopra looks divine in a long sleeve white dress, strappy sandals and brown rimmed sunglasses. On her right hand is a Jacquemus printed cross body bag.

Priyanka's choice of bag to go with her white dress is a daring move but if you are an owner of the "It" brand of the season, you'd be risky, too. This printed bag costs $656 at Farfetch, it is not as expensive as other high end brands that celebrities usually splurge on. Jacquemus doesn't play much with colors which is kind of a brilliant idea because neutrals go well with almost everything in your closet. 

Celebrity Bag: Kendall Jenner carries Jacquemus mini handbag

For the Tiffany & Co. "Believe in Dreams" event in N.Y.C., Kendall Jenner wore a sparkly white mini dress, transparent sandals. It is good to note that Kendall is the first celebrity to bring back the fanny pack/belt bag trend. Her latest bag trend is a micro mini Jacquemus bag that can only fit a phone and some cards. It's like a bag for toddlers. Nevertheless, we will see more of this tiny bag in the following days.
