The holiday season isn’t the only time for charitable actions. World-renowned interior designer Vicente Wolf’s foray into designing fashion accessories has resulted in an out of the box opportunity to give back. Wolf and manufacturer Lance Wovens, noted for their stylish woven leather home furnishings, have joined forces to create a simple and stylish limited edition tote bag for multi-use in any destination and a portion of the sales benefit God’s Love We Deliver, an organization based in New York City, that provides nutritious nourishing meals to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
The tote, made of hand-woven latticed leather, trimmed with brass hardware and lined with marine grade canvas, comes in three color combinations: black with black straps and base, espresso with slate grey straps and base and, my personal favorite, London (a rich chocolate brown) with cognac straps and base. Make it your trusted weekender carry-all, laptop case, shopping bag or travel companion, and look just as fabulous carrying it into a business meeting as you do at the supermarket.
Vicente made his name as one of the world’s premier residential interior designers doing what we at TravelSquire.com know and love: globetrotting. Having recently broken-out into commercial and hospitality projects, he’s worked with top restaurants, hotels, and homeowners all over the world for a total of 35 years bringing his sense of global chic to anything he can get his hands on. His work has been featured on the covers of Architectural Digest, ELLE Décor, and Interiors.
Who says the season of giving is over? Snag one of these luxe totes at Bergdorf Goodman, Holland & Sherry or online at Lance Wovens. For 2013, why not get the pleasure of buying something fabulous that also gives pleasure back? Hmmm, come to think of it, I could use one myself.
