The holidays are incumbent upon us and with that comes the tickly thrill of shopping for many. Whether “Black Friday” is your thing or you’re a Handmade Pledge gal like myself, shopping for others (and ourselves) will soon be the top item on everyone’s list.
For you fashionistas and chic ladies (and gents) out there, we have a deal for YOU! During November, 10% of the purchase price of select bags purchased online from the Louis Vuitton USA website will be donated to the American Red Cross. With prices clocking in between $665 and $1,275, the donations are bound to add up quickly.
The really cool thing about this partnership is that Louis Vuitton is also working with other national societies to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Solferino and the birth of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. In particular, Patrick Louis Vuitton has designed a Special Order Red Cross kit to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s in London along with 5 other Special Order pieces by artists Damien Hirst, Chef Ferran Adria, photographer Annie Leibovitz, musician/composer Gustavo Santalalla, and designer Marc Jacobs.
What they’ve created is as diverse as the artists themselves: a butterfly armoire by Hirst, a trolley case with a knife tray by Adria, camera bags by Leibovitz, an instrument case by Santalalla, and a dog carrier by Jacobs. Proceeds from this auction will benefit the French Red Cross.
So if Vuitton is your bag (pun totally intended), make sure to check this deal out. Who said it’s too early to start shopping?
