There’s A 9/11 Handbag

A purse to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks doesn’t sound like it should be right. But hear me out on this. Handbag designers Jen and Chris Mascali lost their father, Staten Island firefighter Joe Mascali, on 9/11 and they are donating the wholesale portion of proceeds from these handbags to the 9/11 Memorial Fund. It’s a slick red leather tote with fringe detailing, which includes a flame printed with the words “Each life is a miracle that changes the world and leaves it a better place than it was before.” It’s chic, tasteful and doesn’t, in my opinion, egregiously capitalize on a horrific event. Still, the idea of selling 9/11-themed products unnerves me and I worry about what other products are coming down the pike. Do you think 9/11-themed products are all tasteless or are you OK with them if the money goes to charity? [Refinery 29]
