It’s In The Bag
Keith Richards, Christian Louboutin, Gavin Rossdale, and Diane von Furstenberg—those are a few of the boldfaced names Patti Hansen called upon to customize one of her Hung On U cross-body bags, to be auctioned off on CharityBuzz.com to benefit the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation tomorrow night.
“I just called my friends, family, and husband, we kept it small, and I told them do whatever you want with the bags,” says Hansen, who runs the line with Molly Madden and Debi Koppel. “I wish I was more daring with my design after seeing all of theirs. That’s the thing about such talented artists, they can do just do it so fearlessly.”
The rock star wife and her daughters, Alexandra and Theodora Richards, will be on hand at Barneys New York Thursday night (and Barneys in Los Angeles on Monday) to celebrate the bags and give guests an in-person look at the auction bags. In case you were wondering what Keith’s bag looks like, Style.com has the exclusive first look (above). And what does the rock star like to tote around? “He has a soft, black leather bag and he keeps his art supplies in it right now,” Hansen says.
The Charity Buzz auction launches tomorrow at 7 p.m. and runs through October 12.
