American actress and Oxfam America's Sisters on the Planet ambassador Joy Bryant has teamed up with Monica Botkier to create a charity bag bearing their names. Half of the proceeds from sales of the Botkier Joy satchel will benefit Oxfam America and its initiatives, including Joy's beloved Sisters on the Planet program.
"It's an initiative engaging women of all walks of life to raise awareness about the environment," Joy explained.
The Joy satchel is a bit of a departure for Botkier, a brand best known for its sleek urban styling and fashion-forward looks. Clearly Joy Bryant has done more than just add her name, as I'm definitely feeling her influence.
The leather topstitching gives the satchel a definite boho charm. The option shoulder strap adds some versatility, and the cute accompanying pouch will definitely come in handy. I think I'd use it as a cosmetics purse inside the satchel, or perhaps carry it as a clutch on a casual evening out.
The Botkier Joy Satchel is available exclusively at ShopBop.com for $575.
