MANILA – Heart Evangelista took to social media to share that she received a special package all the way from France.
One of her famous friends in the fashion industry, French designer Christian Louboutin, sent her a belated birthday present – a bag from his Manila-inspired collection.
The actress turned 34 last February 14.
“From France to the Philippines! My dear Christian sent me this super thoughtful gift as a belated birthday present. Merci, mon ami,” Evangelista said in an Instagram post, which showed a photo of the gift and the accompanying handwritten note.
Louboutin’s gift to Evangelista is called the Manilacaba tote and is sold at the French designer’s namesake label for $1,590 (around P83,000 as of writing).
The tote effectively integrates the designs of the iconic jeepney with Louboutin’s signature spikes.
Back in 2017, Evangelista got to dance with Louboutin when the renowned designer visited Manila for the Philippine Tatler Ball.
The two have since become friends.
