Net-a-Porter invited Victoria Beckham, Isabel Marant, Ellery, Rosie Assoulin, Alexa Chung and Perfect Moment to design T-shirts for a capsule collection in honor of international women’s day, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Women for Women International, a non-profit organization that helps women living in war-torn countries to rebuild their lives.
Victoria Beckham’s minimalist T-shirt celebrates sisterhood and compassion, featuring the sentence “I Am Her” written in Beckham’s own handwriting. Isabel Marant’s, on the other hand, decided to follow a more vibrant route by emblazoning her T-shirt with the words “You Go, Girl” in bold red letters. All T-shirts are already available on Net-a-Porter, with prices ranging from 130 to 220 US dollars (85-200 pounds).
“We are delighted to, once again, support the humanitarian work of Women for Women International in partnership with six very talented female designers”, said Alison Loehnis, President of Net-a-Porter, in a statement. Brita Fernandez Schmidt, Executive Director of Women for Women International, added: “Each T-shirt in this collection sends a powerful message of support, sisterhood and solidarity. Through this campaign and the vital funds raised, Net-a-Porter, along with six inspiring female designers, are helping to transform the lives not only of the women we work with but also their entire communities”.
This is the second time Net-a-Porter launches a capsule collection to support Women for Women International. Last year Stella McCartney, Bella Fraud, Gianni and Chkloé were invited to design T-shirts.
