It takes a truly special cause to get brands as exclusive as Celine and Prada to abandon their normally sky-high pricing structures, but with Born Free, they've done just that. Born Free is a charity fashion initiative that combines the powers of Vogue and ShopBop to bring together 22 top designers in an effort to end fetal AIDS transmission worldwide by December 31, 2015. A big part of that effort will be a limited edition run of special pieces designed by some of the biggest names in fashion.
On the handbag end, the most exciting piece is the Celine tote above, which, like all of the pieces, features one of a handful of custom prints designed by Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu. The bag is all canvas and made in China, but both the price is right and the cause is good, so we won't blame anyone who picks one up. Check out all the handbags in the collaboration below or shop the full collection (including a totally gorgeous Prada skirt for less than $300) via ShopBop. And you should feel good about shopping - every purchase price will be matched by the MAC AIDS Fund.
