The career of The Hangover star Zach Galifianakis is taking an unexpected turn. The quirky comedian will design a one-of-a-kind purse for Hung On U, the fashion label founded by Keith Richards’ wife Patti Hansen.
Galifianakis is just one of many stars flexing his creative muscles for the project, although he’s certainly the most unlikely. Famed fashion icons including Simon Doonan, Christian Louboutin, Donna Karan, and Joe Zee will also contribute, as will entertainment personalities Anthony Keidis from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, actresses Patricia Arquette and Debra Messing, and Keith Richards’ old Rolling Stone pal Ronnie Wood.
The celebrity creations will be auctioned off at the label’s upcoming launch party celebrating its arrival at Barneys stores. Money raised from the sale of the handbags will benefit the fashion house’s pet charity, the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation. This organization strives to find a cure for the genetic connective tissue disorder.
While many people will have their eyes on the already established fashion names, I’m attracted to the unpredictability of the celebrity designed purses. Do you think Galifianakis will create a casual cross-body bag like the one he favored in The Hangover, or do you expect he’ll offer something a bit more high fashion?
