I’m very pleased to be working with Tommy Hilfiger this season to debut their 2014 Limited Edition Breast Health International Bag. 2014 marks the eighth year that Tommy Hilfiger has worked in collaboration with Breast Health International in building a bag that not only builds awareness around the cause, but also contributes funds to help make a difference in women’s lives around the world. This is also a cause that is dear to my heart because of my close relationship with Susan Schwartz, Director of BHI Europe. Susan is truly a daily inspiration for me as her work with the charity and Tommy Hilfiger have helped change so many lives.
The lovely folks over at Tommy asked me to take a moment and showcase what I would carry in my Tommy Hilfiger Limited Edition BHI Bag, to help raise awareness for the cause, and naturally I agreed to help in whatever way I could. They’ve also asked that I donate an item from the bag to a “BHI Master Bag” which will be gifted to a woman battling breast cancer. You’ll find a beautiful gold watch, perfume and sunglasses all from Tommy Hilfiger, which I will be contributing to the bag in the hope that these items will bring a smile to one lucky woman’s face in the near future.
I’m not the only one helping in spreading the word about the Tommy Hilfiger BHI Bag. In years’ past, celebs such as Drew Barrymore, Renee Zellweger, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer have all lent their time to starring in the campaign for the cause. This year, Naomi Watts is the 2014 face of the collaboration – a perfect match, if you ask me. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, Watts looks resplendent in her support for the cause.
For those of you hoping to score this beautiful bag, it’s now available to purchase online and in select Tommy Hilfiger Stores. It is priced at £299, with £100 from each sale going to directly to the Fund for Living, a global BHI initiative assisting women with breast cancer by covering costs or addressing unique problem associated with their care that are not commonly covered by health insurance programs, such as transportation to a medical appointment or childcare during treatment.
