Lauren Bush's Feed Bags Might Spawn Clothes

Lauren Bush and David Lauren are the first couple of any Ralph Lauren front row. But at this morning's show, David's giant boot, crutches, and (gasp) Nike sneaker distracted us from their beaming state of coupledom and general perfect-ness. "Poor David broke his ankle," Lauren told us after the show. "He just sort of stepped off an uneven sidewalk wrong. He’ll be okay — thank you, though, for asking." We don't show up for nothing! Lauren was still toting around one of her Feed bags, sales of which feed hungry children around the world. "We’re still rolling out new designs," she told us, flaunting the messenger style she was sporting at the moment. "We might go into apparel. But for now we’re still liking bags."

If you can't wait for Lauren's Feed bags to spawn clothes, her own clothing line, Lauren Pierce, will hit Barneys and Intermix in March. She describes it as a "small womenswear capsule collection," made with — you guessed it — ecofriendly fabrics. Pieces retail from about $275 to $900 and sales benefit charity. Lauren pointed us to the line's website. "I’d love your thoughts on it," she said. Commenters?
