Maybe it’s thanks to the success of the BB exposition in Paris this past winter, but Bardot is back as a fashion influence this 2010 season in Paris!
This April, Lancel will produce the BB bag, in honor of the 60’s bombshell, and with her surprise approval and collaboration. Madame Bardot has signed off on this ecologically-sound handbag, which shall be produced using faux leather, organic coton, and natural coloring.
Leonello Borghi, artistic director of Lancel, explained the motivation behind the iconic hangbag’s debut: “Because every woman wants to possess something of Bardot, and because there is an aspect of Bardot in every woman.”
Rumors abound on the details of the bag, which will puportedly incorporate the “Vichy” motif (i.e. gingham) that defined her wardrobe in the 50’s/60’s. Prepare for it’s unveiling this month… Lancel debuts it from St. Tropez, bien sur!
