Christian Louboutin launches 'Mexicaba'

The incredibly talented Christian Louboutin has crafted a seriously vibrant tote for the season.

It makes you want to book a ticket to the sunny Mexican coast and spend endless hours taking in the colourful and electric energy that is Mexico.  

Ahhhh yes, we all see 'red' when we hear the word Louboutin. Christian, a french designer, birthed the ever-desirable red sole heels that make women all over the world feel transformed into elegant, long-legged sirens. Christian's empire has expanded to include accessories and the latest addition being the Mexicaba tote. Inspired by the stunningly colourful Mexican coastline and the beautiful craftsmanship from local artisans the Mexicaba Tote was born.  From the intricate weave to the individually hand painted beads you get a authentic Mexican vibe which can brighten the rainiest of days.

It was a pleasure to be invited to the launch of the Mexicaba in Melbourne on June 15th. So I put on my leg-lengthening Louboutin pumps, got my strut-on and took myself to examine this beauty for myself. The event was held at Mezcalito in the city, where the cocktails (or mocktails) and Mexican fare kept flowing, in a colourful setting.

I had the pleasure of meeting the gorgeous Geraldine, head of Christian Louboutin Australia who spoke of the path taken to design these incredible works of art. With a limited number of the tote produced, you'll need to be quick to get your hands on one of these babies! With winter hitting Melbourne and a warm getaway coming up this is definitely the bag to support a great cause and support my sunny beach get away.
