A Net-A-Porter initiative, Runway To Green brings together well-known designers and their specially-designed merchandise that will be sold online, with a portion of proceeds going to leading environmental organisations. Besides apparel, shoes and other accessories, there are also 4 bags in the collection, including the Gucci New Bamboo ‘Runway To Green’ Limited Edition, which in my opinion is the best of the lot (with Prada’s red tote coming in a close second).
Crafted in oatmeal canvas and trimmed with beige leather, this is as ‘vintage’ as you can get with the New Bamboo. My only gripe? Since this is a US only initiative, those living outside of the United States will not be able to purchase the USD2300 bag online. Still, it’s worth checking it, along with the apparel, shoes and accessories from the likes of Burberry, Marc Jacobs and Thakoon.
