If you’re anything like us, right about now there’s an unfinished shopping list hiding somewhere at the bottom of your bag with scribbles and notes on presents to buy for friends and family. If you’re struggling – and we know we are! – may we suggest these charming soft tote bags from a label that never fails to put a smile on our faces, Marni? The Italian brand has once again collaborated on a special project with underprivileged communities in South America and East Asia and this time, they’ve invited children to draw stories about imaginary worlds. These have been translated into whimsical images, in character with the quirky label, and assembled with vintage fabrics from Marni’s historic archive into fun and very useful tote bags that are ideal for well, pretty much everyone we can think of!
The limited edition bags will be sold exclusively in Marni boutiques and at the Marni Virtual Store from the 3rd of December for £88 and until stocks last, with proceeds going towards educational and developmental programs in schools and hospitals. So, we think we’ve just helped you tick off some names on your list and for a task well done, and in order to avoid the temptation to keep one for yourselves, we’d advice you to get an extra one. Just in case the festive spirit gets slightly lost at the bottom of your bag!
