Brigitte Bardot has partnered up with Lancel, a Parisian leather bag company, to create a collection of eco-friendly/green bags made of 100% natural fibers called the Bardot, and Brigitte. This french film icon, and former sex symbol, is an animal rights activist with her own foundation– Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the Welfare and Protection of Animals.

Per the launch of the ‘BB’ collection, the Champs Elysees’ Lancel store has bordered their location with HOT vintage b & w photos of Brigitte Bardot along with windows of pink gingham– a print she helped popularized in her days of the itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini.

For the eco-bag kick-off, Lancel is offering the chance to win a Brigitte bag. See their website for details.

“I gave my youth
and my beauty to men.
I will give my wisdom and
experience and the best
of myself to animals. “
