Out and about in London, Emma posted a picture on Instagram wearing the Bellani Enamel Electric Blue Bottletop bag on her shoulder. Bottletop’s playful, iconic bags are each handmade by artisans in Salvador, Brazil and made from upcycled materials like waste drinks cans.
When it comes to sustainable fashion, Emma Watson is a strong advocate for eco-conscious buys and the actress just debuted one of her favourite brands during the press tour for her latest film, Little Women.
The brand has long been a fan of Watson too – they even named a bag after her in 2017 and have a loyal fanbase. Bottletop’s flagship store on Regent Street had the first zero-waste interior that was 3D printed from recycled plastic and has a resident robot that makes customised bag charms while you wait.
Alongside showing off her gorgeous eco bag, Watson’s post was also announcing a book treasure hunt around London. The actress, activist and HeForShe founder told her followers that to celebrate the release of Little Women she was placing copies of Louisa May Alcott’s 19th-Century novel by key female statues and monuments around London to honour women.
On Instagram Stories the star was filmed dropping copies of the novel by Agatha Christie, Amy Winehouse and Mary Seacole’s monuments, each book containing a personal note from the actress inside.
Watson wrote: “I’m excited to reveal a global effort with @bookfairiesworldwide to hide 2,000 copies of Little Women! #LWBookFairies starts today and features over a hundred different editions of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel to celebrate the release of #LittleWomenMovie, every one of which has a special note from me inside. 38 countries are involved in the campaign, and it’s going to be the largest book fairy event ever – follow the hashtag to see where they are being hidden over the next few days! Do you believe in book fairies? #ibelieveinbookfairies”
Time to get book hunting, people!
