Marking its 25th year of providing aid to children growing up in war torn countries, War Child UK (aka a seriously great charity more than worthy of your donations) has teamed up with the fashion industry’s most influential designers to create a capsule collection of limited edition t-shirts.
From our go-to witty knitwear designer Bella Freud and Pam Hogg, to Henry Holland and Giles Deacon, the designers have created unique slogan t-shirts as part of the latest #wearitforwarchild campaign.
Fronting the campaign is legendary model Kate Moss and The Crown actress Vanessa Kirby, both sporting Bella Freud’s ‘Peace And Love’ t-shirt design (*adds two to basket immediately*).
Speaking of her work with War Child UK, Bella Freud said, ‘It was wonderful for me to get involved in this project and support War Child UK’s work. The charity turns 25 this year and to learn about the ways they help children overcome the trauma of war is truly inspiring.
‘I urge everyone to help give children the chance in life that they deserve by donating or purchasing an item from the Wear It For War Child collection.’
Adding to the seriously cool t-shirt designs is Pam Hogg’s ‘love not war’ heart-printed tee and Giles Deacon’s adorable ‘My Little Pony’ cartoon design, whilst Henry Holland chose to highlight the gravity of the cause with the graphic ‘Enough is enough’ slogan.
Although the designer tees are a great excuse to add to our ever-growing white t-shirt collection, nabbing yourself one (read: three) is a great way to support a cause that’s not always given the air time it needs.
Money made from sales will support War Child’s vital work with children forced to live with the brutality of war.
Right now, 250 million children are living in countries affected by conflict in places like Syria, where the war has entered its eighth year. War Child UK works to provide life-changing assistance through education, protection and livelihood programs.
Speaking on the designer collaboration, Rob Williams CEO at War Child UK said, ‘We’re incredibly honoured to work with a stellar line-up of fashion designers, and want to thank them for generously lending their time and support to help us raise the essential funds we need to continue our crucial work.’
