On April 24, Heart posted on Instagram that Christian had gifted her a Manila-inspired tote bag that came with a handwritten note from the French designer himself. Heart wrote, “My dear Christian sent me this super thoughtful gift as a belated birthday present. Merci, mon ami.”
The Christian Louboutin tote that Heart received is from the designer’s Manilacaba collection. The tote features various fabrics sourced from the Philippines and has a colorful jeepney badge in the front.
Christian and Heart are known to be good friends. Heart first met Christian in November 2017 when they dined and shared a dance together at the Philippine Tatler Ball. Heart shared a photo of what she called her “Cinderella moment.”
The two met again a few days later at a party hosted by socialite Tessa Prieto-Valdes.
