Limited Edition Designer Tote Arrives Just in Time for Fall Fashion Week
New York, NY, January 19, 2005- Just in time for New York's Fall Fashion Week comes the hottest new accessory for all fashion mavens with an eye towards luxury! Designed by cutting-edge design team As Four, one of the first-ever recipients of the prestigious Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award, these trend-setting totes are certain to be the rage of the front-row fashion elite during Fall Fashion Week next month.
Playing off of As Four's trademark disk-like shape, the wine totes are made of black canvas and incorporate four circles and four holes. They are constructed to not only hold two bottles of Ecco Domani wine, but to be the perfect year-round accessory for fashionistas everywhere. Special features include a sleek pocket for a notebook (to journal the new collections, of course!), and a sturdy handle to survive the tussle of the tents!
"We love working with Ecco Domani wines, we love the circle, and love is a four letter word," says As Four. "It's As Four for Ecco Domani!"
"Ecco Domani prides itself on its commitment to supporting emerging designers. We're honored to work with As Four again on this special project, and we're thrilled with As Four's design for our new wine tote," says David Lane, Director of Marketing for Ecco Domani. "Their creation truly conveys the style and taste Ecco Domani wines stand for."
Past winners of the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation awards include Zac Posen, Peter Som, Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam, and Jeffrey Chow.
