Arm Candy of the Week: Christian Louboutin’s uber-chic Cabaraparis Tote

Christian Louboutin has recently launched his new signature tote for 2020: the Cabaraparis. A classic take on the essence and everyday life of the French capital, the luxe bag pays a tribute to the designer’s hometown and carries forward the Parisian legacy of art, culture, and solidarity.

The luxe Cabaraparis is created in collaboration with illustrator Hélène Tran and depicts two starkly different facets of Paris. It takes inspiration from the changing landscapes of the city during day and night and features a series of illustrations in the form of printed neoprene panels across its length.

Practical yet stylish, the tote features two handles (in red) and an adjustable strap for ease of carrying. It comes with a practical flat interior pocket and triangular reinforcements decked with signature spikes. Priced at $ 1,690, the bag pays tribute to some of the city’s most iconic moments and monuments and is the fifth edition in the Caba series.

Some of the most enchanting illustrations stamped across it include a pictorial representation of Christian in feline form meowing “T’ shoes Me!” inside the Cabaraparis Night (Version 1) and snippets of his red scooter and a signature Louboutin pump being crowned the new Queen of Paris across the Cabaraparis Day (Version 2).

Commenting on the arm candy, Christian Louboutin quipped: “Paris is my ultimate muse. It’s one of the most visited cities in the world, with some of the grandest architecture. I wanted to capture that fantasy element of Paris, not anchor the Cabaraparis in reality.”

Well, if you love all things ‘Paris’, this one is for you!
