Rachel Roy “Kindness Is Always Fashionable” Tote
All you rude, seat-hogging, neck-swiveling, line-cutting, crowd-pushing urbanites take heed of the message Rachel Roy is promulgating in her new limited-edition tote: “Kindness is Always Fashionable.” Made of 45% linen and 55% cotton, this lightweight tote was designed to help the U.S. Fund for Unicef provide relief for the more than 13 million people in Pakistan affected by the devastating monsoon rains in and subsequent flooding that washed away bridges, submerged croplands, destroyed over 300,000 homes, claimed the lives of over 1,600 people, and left over 10 million children in need of food, shelter, and medical supplies. Since disaster struck in July, the global community has failed to pledge sufficient aid funds to address such a large-scale crisis. And so, Rachel Roy, has vowed to do her part to help by designing a limited-edition tote and vowing to donate 100% of the proceeds from their sale to UNICEF.
This natural, un-dyed tote features contrast stitching and frayed edges along the bottom for an earthy, laid-back look. The front of the tote features the phrase “Kindness Is Always Fashionable” along the center, in black block letters. The back of the bag, meanwhile, features a peace sign symbol, the outline of which, upon closer inspection, is formed by illustrations of tiny children. All around the peace sign, you’ll find the signatures of more than 88 celebrities — among them André Leon Talley, Diane Von Furstenberg, Iman, Jay-Z and Oprah.
So what do you say? Feel like being fashionable through a kind gesture of solidarity?
