Jade Jagger designs exclusive bag for Carnaby Street

2010 is the 50th Anniversary of Carnaby Street, the iconic London hot-spot for fashion and music fusion. In celebration Jade Jagger has designed an exclusive bag with all net proceeds going to support the Environmental Justice Foundation. The colourful print was inspired by Carnaby’s ‘Summer of Love’ as Jade’s own fashion label Jezebel has always been inspired by the never ending summer in Ibiza. The design features Jade’s classic kiss icon lit up by a rainbow. The large tote shopper is made of 100% cotton and features wide shoulder straps and a double internal pocket to keep your treasures safe. The bag costs £16.00 and is available to buy at www.ejfoundation.org/shop
