Chica Chick Launches the
Designer Bag with a Conscience
As every girl knows, a handbag is more than just a fashion accessory
it's a survival kit that holds all the little necessities you need to get through the day. Now Chica Chick has taken this concept a step further with its brand new two-in-one designer bag, which comes complete with a pack of lifestyle essentials that
like the handbag itself
will make sure you're ready to go anywhere, anytime.
But that's not all. As well as secret pockets containing the essentials pack
three Fusion condoms, panty pad, tampon, mini toothbrush and toothpaste and deodorant
the Chica Chick bag conceals another useful innovation. Our unique patent-pending design means that it converts from a generous tote day bag to a cute, scrunchie grab-bag for the evening at the pull of a cord, making it two bags for the price of one.
Keith Murphy, managing director of Chica Chick, says he came up with the idea for a bag that encourages social awareness when he was recuperating in hospital after a kidney transplant.
I was reading a newspaper and, among all the stories about the credit crunch, I noticed a headline about the rise of sexually transmitted infections among 15 to 25-year-olds. It got me thinking that, if you could come up with a fashionable and practical product that would appeal to young women, you might also be able to empower them to make responsible decisions, encourage safe sex and help prevent STIs,
My wife Cathy has experience in the fashion trade and she took this idea and converted it into a design for the Chica Chick bag. We wanted it to be an ethical product, so we sourced a supply chain with a properly audited manufacturer and only use a faux leather material that is biodegradable in 10 years. We think it shows that fashion doesn't just have to be about looking good, it can tackle important social issues too.
The Chica Chick bag will be launched officially on 5 October 2009 and is lovingly designed in the UK on the Sussex coast. Featuring a funky signature patchwork style, it will initially be available in three colourways
pink mix, blue mix and multi. RRP is
35. For more details, go to www.chicachick.com.
