A host of big name designers, actors, and musicians have joined forces to design charity T-shirts for Uniqlo. Alber Elbaz, Karl Lagerfeld, Cyndi Lauper, Nicole Kidman, Lady Gaga, and Blake Lively are amongst the celebs who’ve designed T-shirts to raise money for the Japanese Red Cross.
Sales of the $19.90 tees will help the charity organization’s recovery efforts following the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Of course it’s a cause close to the Japanese fashion house’s heart. Company chairman, president, and chief executive officer Tadashi Yanai has already donated $12 million from his own pocket to the relief efforts, and this latest endeavor will no doubt boost that figure significantly.
The ten different charity T-shirts’ designs are very diverse, so there’s sure to be one to suit your own personal beach style. We’re particularly fond of Karl Lagerfeld’s colorful design pictured, with its rising red sun and message of love, hope, and courage. Which celebrity designed tee is your favorite?
I only hope they’re made from an eco-friendly material, or at least a natural one. It seems a bit counter intuitive to help a country recover by polluting the world with T-shirt production.
Look for them in Uniqlo stores and online from June 25, and show your support for Japan on the beach this summer!
