You know her, the girl who plays evil Georgina Sparks on CW’s world-famous teen series: Gossip Girl. Yes, we’re talking about Michelle Trachtenberg, who -aside from acting- has been trying out her luck in the fashion world as an accessory designer as well. Trachtenberg once collaborated with Coach to design their jewelry, but now she’s moving on to bigger accessory: the handbag. In fact, that exact handbag she has in the picture.
Michelle Tratchenberg decided to do good by partnering up with handbag label, Botkier, in creating a purse for non-profit Oxfam International. Michelle is best buds with handbag designer, Monica Botkier, and the two of them will donate 50% of the proceeds from this bag to Oxfam International.
Monica Botkier stated:
“Oxfam is dedicated to fighting poverty globally, and funds go directly to the people who need it. It’s a charity that we have both been involved with and supportive of, so the decision was very natural. Oxfam really understands and supports women all over the world. They realize that the world’s female population is often directly affected by any global crisis, and this was important to me.”
The beautiful distressed leather Michelle Satchel is adorned by gunmetal hardware, which adds to its ‘antiquated modern’ look. Loving the compartment details, detachable shoulder straps and braided double handles.
The Botkier Michelle Satchel is available exclusively at Shopbop.com and at the price of $545, we seriously think it’s something to consider. After all, you’re helping the fight against poverty while looking great. Talk about a great deal!
