Bidding Wars!!!

Now that Christopher Kane is on his way to becoming a household name, he is giving back where he can. His latest gesture? Designing a leather tote with electrical specialists Comet, to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. “I wanted to do it as soon as I heard what charity it was for,” said Kane, who’s best known for his neon-hued bandage micro minis. “I have learned so much about making bags, especially ones with so many sections!” Only four of the multi-pocketed carryalls have been produced, and will be auctioned off on eBay at the end of August. I can only imagine the ridiculousness that people will be willing to spend. It's a good thing it all goes towards a cause. Kane noted that he sought inspiration in creating the bag from his girl friends, many of whom, he laughed, were always losing their cell phones or iPods. “This bag has different sections for every gadget,” he explained. “You can carry your laptop, camera, battery chargers, and iPod in secure pockets while looking good at the same time.” Sounds perfect for the on the go lady.
