Bags with a message for designers
Anti-designer fashion bags.
Why it matters
We have seen the rise of disposable cheap fashion that competes with designer pieces bit now the trend seems to be getting more aggressive. With the recession still full in swing the fashion seems to be shifting towards individual statements such as the ‘Karl who?’ bag that takes a swipe at designer Karl Lagerfield. Could this anti-designer movement last beyond the recessionary times?

Lingerie brand Triumph are encouraging their customers to bring in their old bras for recycling. In return they offer donators 10% off a new bra and make a 10p donation to Breast Cancer Care. If the bras are suitable for re-use they will be sold on to developing countries, who have a huge demand for good quality bras with the proceeds donated to Breast Cancer Care. If they are not suitable for re-use, the fabric itself is recycled.
