From next Tuesday the 24th through July 15, Brooklyn-based bag and accessory label Ananas will be hopping over the East River to open a pop-up shop just on the other side of the Manhattan Bridge, at 52 Canal Street. The line of handmade bags ($88-550), scarves and vintage jewelry ($80-250) is most popular in Asia but carried in this hemisphere by the likes of Anne Hathaway and Meg White. Debuting in their LES pop-up will be their fall designs, clutches for charity to benefit ovarian and breast cancer research, and a clothing collaboration between Anana's designer Jennifer Lagdameo and Anya Ponorovskaya.
And Ananas will do good by their brief presence: Each purchase of a bag from the eco collection will plant ten trees in the Phillipines, along with yielding you a free reusable tote printed with "I (pineapple) NY."
