A slew of designers and landmark Maisons have joined forces for what just might be the most iconic fashion auction of the year. Even better, it's for all for a brilliant cause.
The household names have banded together in support of #ProtegeTonSoignant, a multi-disciplinary team whose mission is to provide equipment for French hospitals and caregivers serving on the front line amid the current pandemic. Each participant will reimagine one item form their inventory in the group's electric blue colors, which will then be auctioned on a dedicated platform. Bidding starts at €100, with the earnings going into a money pot to be distributed among those who need it.
As for who's involved? Well, it's essentially a high fashion dream team. In order, here's who's confirmed so far (the press release notes there are more big hitters to come):
