ICONIC INTERIOR DESIGNER Barbara Barry partnered with Brave Brown Bag (BBB) to create the newest shade for summer: Pink Peony. Barry is a long-time lover of BBB and says, “pink is the new neutral.” This subtle shade of pink sailcloth shimmers in the light and is available in all three BBB sizes. In 1996, Canadian designer Charlotte McKeough reinvented the paper shopping bag, naming it “The Brave Brown Bag.” Careful to preserve the paper bag aesthetic, she added a touch of “bravery,” making the wax cotton carryall built to last, right down to its pinked edge. Seen in shops in London, Milan, New York, Paris, and Tokyo, the Brave Brown Bag is now a classic itself.
