Net-A-Porter’s International Women’s Day Capsule Features Female-Designed Tees That Benefit An Important Cause
While it's certainly warranted to celebrate all the wonderful women around you (including yourself) on the daily, it's still pretty cool that there's a day that officially recognizes the powerful ladies all over the world. It's a great moment to reflect on the impact that hardworking women have had on your life, and to lift them all up in a moment of celebration. And here to help do that is Net-A-Porter's International Women's Day capsule, a collection of female-designed t-shirts so chic — and charitable — you'll want to sport them long after this special day has passed.
International Women's day officially falls on March 8 in 2019, and this year marks the second year that Net-a-Porter has launched a capsule collection of limited-edition t-shirts, all six of which were created by female designers to celebrate the day. This time around, the shirts have been designed by Isabel Marant, Rosie Assoulin, Alexa Chung, Perfect Moment, Victoria Beckham, and Ellery, and all sale profits go towards Women for Women International — a non-profit that's dedicated to helping women who live in war-torn countries by educating them on their rights, health, and vocational skills.
"Each t-shirt in this collection sends a powerful message of support, sisterhood and solidarity," Brita Fernandez Schmidt, Executive Director of Women for Women International – UK said in a press release. "Through this campaign and the vital funds raised, Net-a-Porter, along with six inspiring female designers, are helping to transform the lives not only of the women we work with but also their entire communities."
Obviously, that's as good a reason as any to scoop up one (or more) of the empowering shirts — but it doesn't hurt that they're also incredibly chic, and already being spotted on lots of proud female figures, like Gisele Bündchen, Nicole Kidman, Angela Bassett, Lucy Liu, Gina Torres, and more.
Each of the shirts offers up the female designers' interpretations of what women's empowerment really means — from Isabel Marant's bold, positive slogan tee, $140, that reads You Go Girl! to Alexa Chung's chic reminder, $130, that the female essence should be celebrated as sacred. Angela Basset chose Perfect Moment's vibrant shirt, $170, which celebrates strong women from every single walk of life by way of a rainbow star replacing the "o" in Power.
