Our newest Ricky Bag gets dressed up in pink to help support the fight against cancer the world over
Few of Ralph Lauren’s creations are as instantly recognizable or as iconic as the Ricky Bag. And few of Mr. Lauren’s passions surpass the importance of the Pink Pony initiative of the Polo Ralph Lauren Foundation, his company's worldwide campaign supporting the fight against cancer. This fall, these two icons—one of fashion, the other of philanthropy—join together to help raise awareness and find a cure while making the owners of these special-edition handbags look very chic indeed.
Crafted from luxurious Italian leather, this new Soft Ricky has a signature slouchy shape and is dyed to match the Pink Pony’s official Pantone color, Sachet Pink. The bag is undeniably glamorous, but it’s also a symbol of something greater. In October 2013, 50 percent of the purchase price of each Pink Pony Soft Ricky will be donated to help fund programs geared toward cancer screening, early diagnosis, treatment and research. If you want to show your support in super-luxe style, you’ll have to act fast: Only 95 Pink Pony Soft Ricky Bags are available. Each comes with a unique identification tag and provides a big opportunity to show the world where you stand in the battle against cancer.
