The Bardot handbag by Lancel

August 23rd, 2010

Flashback mood in France. Lancel released on June 14 a “Brigitte Bardot”  or “BB” bag in honor of the famous French actress. Brigitte Bardot was a movie star, a sex symbol on the French scene and also a major figure of the 60′s.  She was the muse of film directors, music compositors and inspired many fashion trends as french girls copied her style back then. Brigitte Bardot was particularly famous for her puffy gingham dress and her signature “chignon choucroute” hair style which is a cascading curl updo.

She is now the muse of Lancel with the BB, a new vegan bag. Indeed, Brigitte Bardot, now retired from the movie industry, is an animal activist and runs an association for the protection and defense of animal rights. Lancel has displayed in his windows beautiful photos of BB on its Champs Elysees store.

Previously, Lancel created a collection for  Isabelle Adjani and said it was now creating the BB bag for “Every woman who wants to carry with her a bit of the Bardot attitude”. The bardot bag is released in tweed at 680 euros, a material 100% vegan, and another version in alcantara at 880 euros is also fabricated without any animal skin and without any chemical coloration process or tanning. This 100% environmental friendly or “green bag” can be found in blue, pink, apricot, grey, ivory or beige moka.  It is a remake of the famous bucket style of the brand, the model “seau” updated with the specific style of the actress: gingham lining  and  BB initials charms.
