Joy Bryant has teamed up with handbag aficionado and friend Monica Botkier on a charitable purse that might just be that perfect summer carryall. The Joy Satchel ($575), made of soft brown pebble leather, features cool topstitching and a detachable shoulder strap so you can carry it as a tote or sling it over your shoulder like a messenger bag. "Inside is a detachable clutch that is the perfect size to take out at night," Bryant told us. "It's like three bags in one! I love bags that are hip-slung and this one is made of the kind of leather that ages really well and will get nice and worn and rugged looking." And the bag isn't just functional: it also helps a good cause. Fifty percent off the proceeds benefit Oxfam America, an anti-poverty charity where Bryant is an ambassador. "I am a Sister on the Planet for Oxfam. It's an initiative engaging women of all walks of life to raise awareness about the environment. I hosted a cocktail party in N.Y.C. to talk about the work we are doing and Monica [Botkier] came and asked, 'How can I be a part of this?'" said Bryant. "I love the notion of creating a product where your dollars are helping make someone's life better." Bryant is going to Tanzania later this year to educate farmers and coffee growers on sustainable farming methods . . . and, she says, "I can't wait to show the women the bag—I hope they dig it!"
