RED LETTER LEATHER

Tommy Hilfiger's lipstick-hued handbag at once benefits charity and your wardrobe

Two of fashion’s most prolific faces have joined forces in fashion and charity.  In partnership with Breast Health International, Milla Jovovich and Helena Christensen are getting behind Tommy Hilfiger’s seriously chic limited-  edition bag.  Jovovich, a busy actress and iconic model, is serving as ambassador, while supermodel and accomplished photographer Christensen shot the campaign.  Fifty percent of the proceeds from the handbag’s retail price will go directly to ‘Fund for Living’, a global initiative by Breast Health International to support women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The program fills the gap by covering small, but essential needs not under most people’s health plans to ease their financial burden during a difficult time. Beyond its do-good appeal, the bag’s glossy lipstick red leather, outsize tassel and gold hardware provide a perfect pop to spring’s denim staples. More than just your average It-Bag, this carryall stands to make a grand impact.
