Gucci is well into its 7th year of partnering with the children’s charity, UNICEF and the famed Italian label announced that its launching a special edition of its Gucci for UNICEF “Boston” bag. Designed by Gucci’s creative director, Frida Giannini, the bag has been produced in luxurious micro-leather, which is perfect for Fall. The taupe-colored bag, also has the iconic Gucci logo and retails for $1520.
While only 25 cent of the purchase of each bag will benefit UNICEF’s Schools for Africa and Schools for Asia initiatives, every penny counts when it comes to providing children with a quality education. And due to Gucci’s efforts over the last two years, the Gucci for UNICEF bags have generated over $2 million for the charity.
“For most children in sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia, education represents the only way out of a life of entrenched poverty. We are grateful to Gucci for their ongoing commitment to UNICEF and their support in building a brighter future for these children,” says Leila Pakkala, Director of UNICEF’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships Division. The Gucci for UNICEF Boston Bag will be available in Gucci stores worldwide and on www.gucci.com from now until May 2013. LOVE Fashion? LIKE me on Facebook and FOLLOW me on Twitter!!
