Tomorrow is World AIDS Day and that's always been a big deal at Kiehl's. They're launching a limited edition Hand Care for the Cure product benefiting amfAR. And they're also partnering with Derek Lam on a not so little quilting project. Kiehl's stores from more than 30 countries created pieces on which Derek put the finishing touches. The quilt will be on display in New York for just one week starting tomorrow at the Kiehl's store at 13th Street and 3rd Avenue before it goes on tour around the world. With all the advances in treatment (which are of course great), it's sometimes easy to put the epidemic out of our minds. We're so proud to see our industry is still raising money for a cure!
Derek Lam Designs for eBay
In an effort to introduce his clothes to a wider audience, designer Derek Lam has inked a deal with eBay to produce an exclusive collection. Norma Kamali was the first major designer to collaborate with the online marketplace. And Narciso Rodriguez created a Spring 2010 diffusion line exclusively for eBay. However, Lam's collection will be "crowdsourced," as eBay is calling it: "The designer will unveil a ready-to-wear collection of original designs at a presentation during New York Fashion Week in February 2011 and invite shoppers to vote for their favorites on eBay.com. The final collection will be available for purchase in Spring/Summer 2011 at accessible, fixed price points—delivering shoppers immediate, in season access to Lam’s signature designs at excellent value, exclusively on eBay."
