04.02.2011- Do something funny (and fashionable!) for money

Friday, 4 February 2011

Yesterday saw the official launch of Comic Relief 2011, aka Red Nose Day, which this year takes place on March 18th. As well as having the lovely Lara Stone as the face of the campaign launch, those clever people over at Comic Relief HQ have ensured that this Red Nose Day will be the most fashionable yet by collaborating with Dame Vivienne Westwood to create a quirky collection of t-shirts which feature classic designs with a cheeky Red Nose twist:

Shakespeare Unisex T-Shirt, £9.99.
Louis XIV Lady Women's T-Shirt, £14.99.
Punk Girl Women's T-Shirt, £14.99.
The Laughing Audience by Hogarth T-Shirt, £9.99.
Each tee is made using 100% organic Fairtrade cotton, with half of the proceeds from each sale donated to Comic Relief. The full range of designs can be viewed and purchased at the Red Nose Day online shop, and at TK Maxx, Sainsburys and Oxfam, where you can also pick up the trademark Red Noses. And, as if being able to snap up a Vivienne Westwood designed tee for under £15 wasn't enough, Comic Relief have also joined forces with Liberty to create a limited edition shopping bag and silk scarf, each featuring a Red Nose inspired print:

Coated Canvas Shopper, £12.99.
Burgundy Comic Relief Liberty Print Silk Scarf, £12.99.
£4 from each sale will benefit Comic Relief charities across the U.K and in some of the world's poorest countries, so buying the shopper or scarf (or both) as well as one of Vivienne Westwood's tees is a really great way to make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged people all over the world. Money truly well spent.

What do you think of Vivienne Westwood's designs and the Liberty collaboration? Are you looking forward to Red Nose Day?
