Fashion against AIDS

If you are like me and you buy each spring a new set of approx 5 tees, then maybe this year you will choose to do 2 things at a time: add cute pieces to your wardrobe and help raising funds for HIV/AIDS-prevention projects around the world.

I am talking of course about the new project H&M will launch in the stores beginning of february. Rihanna, Chicks on Speed, Good Charlotte, Henrik Vibskov, Jade Jagger, Justice, Katharine Hamnett, My Chemical Romance, Rufus Wainwright, Scissor Sisters, The Cardigans, Tiga, Timbaland and Ziggy Marley are the artists that were designing (free of charge) t-shirts, hoods and tanktops for a limited collection meant to draw attention to HIV/AIDS and increase young people’s awareness of it.

Besides the humanitarian side, the t-shirts have a really simple/interesting design. If i will have a chance (meaning if i will be near a H&M soon), i will definitely buy the "Love" grey one designed by Cardigans, the black with umbrella print by Good Charlotte and the white tank top by Rufus Wainwright. Maybe also Jagger's and Rihanna's.. And TIGA designed a cute pink hood, that suits my tastes at perfection.

The capsule collection includes some pieces for men as well. My favorite are the ones designed by Timbaland.
