Brilliant recycled bottletop bag

Bottletop20002_lr_1Fashionistas with a good memory will recall the original Mulberry Bottletop handbag, modelled by celebs such as Melanie 'All Saints' Blatt way back in 2002. Well, the good news is that the new version - the fabulously ostentatious design on the right - is due before Christmas. On top of being a fine example of high fashion and recycling, the bag also earns ethical points. The Bottletop charity gives an (undeclared) sum of its profits to sexual health projects in Africa, the UK and elsewhere in the world. I'm missing the bottletop connection - unless it's to do with urban myths and  coke's contraceptive qualities - but I'm loving the gesture. Although Bottletop's online shop is currently down I'm waiting to hear back on pricing and stockist info. [NB the picture also shows Bottletop's new radio and iPod case. It's not the first ever bag with a built-in radio antenna] Update: the Bottletop bag will be £100 shortly from Malmaison hotels across the country and Liberty in London.
