Portugaba by Christian Louboutin

Monday – Saturday 10 – 7pm and Sunday 12 – 6pm.

For the month of May, the Christian Louboutin Motcomb Boutique celebrates the launch of the Portugaba, a limited-edition tote bag in celebration of Portugal and its craftsmanship, as well as two exclusive shoe styles, the Spetsos and Vieira, in matching Azulejos crepe satin prints. Created using traditional techniques and local artisanal know-how, the Portugaba is Christian’s ode Portugal, his second home and long-time source of inspiration.

Representing a journey through Portugal, the Portugaba combines the talents of specialised artisans from the four corners of the county - whether passed down from generation to generation or revived from near extinction, their skills and knowledge are what keeps Portuguese tradition alive.

From the painted Azulejos style beads that adorn its handles, to the fringing and the intricate raised Puxados motifs covering the panels that make up its body, every single component of the bag has been meticulously made by hand meaning that each piece is unique.

10% of the profits from the Portugaba sales will be donated to the Associação Portugal à Mão – an association deeply involved in the promotion and preservation of Portuguese arts and crafts.
