Scarlett Johansson has turned her hand to designing, as if being a successful actress, part-time model and full-time sex bomb wasn’t enough. But, this isn’t your average celebrity foray into the design world.
She is already the face of Mango and now Johansson has designed a handbag for the Spanish retailer to help raise funds for the victims of the Haiti earthquake.
“I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Mango to promote conscious consumerism and to benefit Oxfam’s Haiti Earthquake Response Fund. By purchasing this bag, which I specially designed, you are helping to provide life saving assistance like clean water to the people of Haiti.”
The print on the handbag represents the ancient cartography of Haiti, and contains the message “Supporting the people of Haiti” written and signed by Scarlett.
The handbag launches at Mango stores worldwide in March, part of the profits will be donated to the NGO Oxfam International.
