For many of us, the struggle and pressure to recreate the model look can burn a hefty hole in our pockets and purses.
When well-known celebrity supermodel Bella Hadid was spotted wearing the now-infamous Bibi bag- dubbed the bingo bag in Milan earlier this year, it finally brought our beloved game of bingo to the fashion catwalk.
Designed by Lucinda “Lulu” Jane Guinness OBE, the daughter of Sir Miles Rivett-Carnac, 9th Baronet, the bingo bag was in instant success. Last week, Lulu Guinness released a very small number of bibi bags more. Subsequently and unsurprisingly, the highly-sought-after bag completely sold out within just 24 hours of it going on sale.
With a tongue firmly in cheek but an eye on giving back, Buzz Bingo, the UK’s largest bingo operator, has recreated the famous Bibi bingo bag. However, instead of having to fork out nearly two hundred quid for a fraction of the price – £1.75 as opposed to the £175 designer version.
Can you tell the difference?
Proceeds from the sale of the Buzz Bingo Bag will go to the NHS. Buzz Bingo which is owned by Caledonia Investments has also been supporting the NHS through the introduction of NHS Lucky Stars in its Main Event games. This feature sees 5p from the sale of every paper book and electronic touchpad package, donated to the NHS.
The Buzz Bingo Bibi-inspired bag will be available on a trial soon.
