Bloomingdale’s Launches Rebecca Minkoff Backpack

June 6, 2014

Worlds collide at Bloomingdale’s Chevy Chase next Thursday, when a rather unexpected trinity of Capital Bikeshare, handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff, and Bloomie’s shoppers will form. The impetus: the launch of a $195 “bike share backpack,” designed by Rebecca Minkoff specifically for the bike-sharing lady cyclist and available in only a handful of cities. If the price seems, uh, a bit steep for a nylon bag, bear in mind that Rebecca Minkoff hobo bags are currently retailing at Bloomingdale’s for $425. A portion of sales will also go to Women & Bicycles, a program within the Washington Area Bicycling Association that offers mentorship and support to women cyclists. (WCP)
