Brigitte Bardot has partnered up with Lancel, a Parisian leather bag company, to create a collection of eco-friendly/green bags made of 100% natural fibers called the Bardot, and Brigitte. This french film icon, and former sex symbol, is an animal rights activist with her own foundation-- Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the Welfare and Protection of Animals.
Per the launch of the 'BB' collection, the Champs Elysees' Lancel store has bordered their location with HOT vintage b & w photos of Brigitte Bardot along with windows of pink gingham-- a print she helped popularized in her days of the itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini.
For the eco-bag kick-off, Lancel is offering the chance to win a Brigitte bag. See their website for details.
