Milan-based label SANSOVINO 6 has launched a politically-charged scarf initiative aimed at promoting discourse and encouraging action.

The brand sprung into action after becoming disenfranchised with the global political climate. A selection of knitted jacquard scarves has been included, bearing three different messages: “RESIST,” “WE ARE ALL MIGRANTS,” and “WAKE UP FOR FREEDOM.” A raised fist design is also incorporated.

The project has been internally financed and the scarves will be randomly distributed during Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks. Thereafter, they will appear online with all proceeds going to select organizations.

Keep an eye out for the scarves popping up on your social feeds over the coming days and weeks.

In related news, Robert Geller’s “IMMIGRANT” T-shirt is now available to cop.
