Anya Hindmarch + The High Line

好像已經好久沒有handbag hunt了…
前幾天晃到Anya Hindmarch網站發現這個包包…
更妙的是只在New York Soho store only!
趁這個Labor Day’s long weekend想說拉A去晃晃… (不過不知道會不會已經沒貨了?)!
PS: ㄚ…  昨天接到通知 需要babysit Jacob  所以一起一起!! Nerd 
 
 
 
 
想必大家一定很好奇the High Line是啥
我也很好奇是什麼原因 Anya會跟the High Line合作 並且每賣一個就捐出25%的所得
Quoted from Anya Hindmarch Website:
"Anya will donate 25% of the proceeds from the sale of each chic carry-all to the non-profit organization Friends of the High Line."
 
喔! 做善事~ 我也要來湊熱鬧 google了一下:
 
原來這是個虛廢已久的天橋火車軌道建造於1930’s 當時Manhattan’s largest industrial district
為運輸dangerous goods的關係 特別建造的 1980’s 就沒有再使用了
 
1999基於保護古蹟吧 
A community-based non-profit group called Friends of the High Line formed to save the railroad track.
Friends of the High Line & City of New York 合作把它變成一個public park 
 
今年六月開放
 
我想如果沒有買到包包
應該還是會帶Jacob去High Line走走啦…. Open-mouthed
 
哇 上網查了 美金$150 還要加sales tax…  ><"
算一算:
$150 + Sales tax (8.875%) = $163.31 – donation (25%)
= $122.48 <— 哈哈 這樣的價錢比較能夠說服自己…
 
The End
