Never has charity looked more fabulous! Lulu Guinness are supporting Breast Cancer Now’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign, with a newly-created range of covetable clutch bags.

Founded by fashion royalty Ralph Lauren in 1996, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has one simple aim, to stop breast cancer from taking lives. Thanks to their tireless work, the charity has raised nearly £16million for vital research during the past 13 years.

This year, their theme is #BosomBuddies, encouraging their supporters to dress in solidarity against breast cancer through purchases that benefit the charity.

Known for their iconic, eye-catching designs, and having been seen on the arms of trailblazing women such as Helena Bonham Carter and Kate Moss, the Lulu Guinness brand was the perfect choice to team up with.

Thrilled to be a part of the campaign for the first time, Lulu commented, ‘I’m so pleased to support Fashon Targets Breast Cancer with this meaningful collection. Either writing or receiving a letter is always a special moment. Letters symbolise the embodied connection between two people. Their words are often full of love, wisdom and hope.’

The Love Letters Laura bag - £245

Designed with three special people in mind, the capsule collection is made up of three 'Love Letter' bags; the Lauren wallet, Lillan clutch and Laura bag with a thin chain strap. Each is made from a high-quality grainy leather and sealed with a beautiful red wax seal, evoking an image of a sealed, secretive love letter.

The Lillian envelope clutch is only available in oyster, but the Laura and Lauren styles also come in classic black and deep aqua. A gorgeous way to get a very important message across...

The Lillian retails at £252, Laura at £245 and Lauren at £165. For every bag or purse sold 30% of the proceeds will go straight to Breast Cancer Now.

The Love Letters Lillian bag - £252

The Love Letters Lauren bag - £165
