Heart Evangelista and her latest artwork

It is not news to anyone that Heart Evangelista is a great painter nor is her penchant in using luxury bags as her canvas. But we simply can’t help but gush whenever she releases her new artworks on designer goods.

This time, the Filipino style icon and actress posted on Instagram her latest work. With the caption “Proudly Filipino,” the post presents her painting depicting the beauty of Filipino culture set on a Louis Vuitton Capucines bag.

According to the French fashion house’s website, the bag was first launched in 2013 and was named after Rue de Capucines, a street in Paris where Louis Vuitton first opened in 1854. Since then, the Capucines bag became a favorite of many, lauding its understated and timeless charm.

The artwork features a woman wearing a terno with a man playing the guitar in the back. On the side is Heart’s precious pet dog, Panda. Just like the woman in her painting, Heart donned a terno creation designed by Joey Samson to amplify the Filipino Pride spirit.

In her past vlog, the fashion influencer talked about her love for Filipiniana pieces and gave fans a peek of her terno collection crafted by local designers such as Ivar Aseron and Mark Bumgarner. “I always loved it (Filipiniana),” Heart said. “It makes me feel so proud that I’m Filipina and it’s just such a statement outfit.”
