Anne Hathaway may be having boyfriend problems, but at least she has one hot new store to shop at--at least until July 15. The Ananas @ fifty-two pop up store is open from now until Mid-July on 52 Canal Street between Ludlow and Orchard. It showcases Jennifer Lagdameo's gorgeous designs. And, get this, they're actually made in NYC! Many of the fabrics and embellishments are imported from the Philippines by Jennifer herself. One of the fabrics is made with fiber from the abaca plant (a cousin of the banana). How's that for eco-friendly? In addition, for each bag sold, Ananas plants a tree in the Philippines through Trees for the Future. For every bag sold from the eco-collection (including the abaca-fiber bag), 10 trees are planted.
In addition to Anne, Cameron Diaz and Meg White are fans of the line. If you can't make it to the store, you can always shop online.
