NEW YORK — National Breast Cancer Awareness Month kicked off today, and this year, the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer program has a slew of new collaborations.
Carlos Miele designed limited edition scarves featuring the iconic bull’s-eye logo for $125; Esteban Cortazar, in partnership with Colombian retailer Exito, designed a capsule FTBC collection that will bow in early December, and Intermix is offering $48 FTBC bracelets by Ruby Kobo and Shashi, as well as a $68 FTBC T-shirt by Torn by Ronny Kobo.
It’s not just the special bull’s-eye items that benefit the cause. Marcia Patmos' Leroy & Perry brand has collaborated with KBL on a line of $150 sunglasses, with proceeds going to FTBC. Upscale catalogue Cambria Cove will donate proceeds of sales from Cynthia Rowley-designed iPad cases to FTBC, while innerwear trade show Curve asked its exhibitors to make a $500 donation to the cause during registration. Other companies committed to FTBC include Henri Bendel, which is selling a FTBC-brand “Toote3sie” bag; South Coast Plaza, which is teaming up for a major event to raise funds for FTBC next Tuesday; and Jurlique, which is donating a portion of sales this month to the initiative. The CFDA plans to stage a meeting of all international FTBC delegates in New York in the fall.

“I am of tradition, but that doesn’t mean I have an old outlook on life,” Hubert de Givenchy told WWD in an interview in 1978. The legendary designer, who died last week at the age of 91, achieved wide success soon after launching his own couture boutique in the early ’50s, but he refused to pine for that time. For the first time since its original publication, read our interview with Givenchy on his awe for Audrey Hepburn and looking forward. Link in bio. #wwdarchives #fbf (📷: Pierre Schermann)
About last night: @alexachung and @supergausa toasted the launch of their capsule collection. “It’s the shape that I love, so rather than amend the last and make the sole crazy or do anything wild, we just did really subtle additions that I think make it look really luxe-y,” said Chung. #wwdfashion (📷: Marc Patrick)
