The A-list actress will act as ambassador for the brand's charity initiative with Breast Health International
The all-American brand has had a successful on-going partnership with Breast Health International (BHI) for the past five years – and has enlisted the help of Ms Zellweger for its Spring 2011 initiative.
Every year Tommy Hilfiger launches a limited edition bag, from which proceeds go to benefit the breast cancer charity – with the fifth design being modelled by Renée,
The campaign, shot by renowned photographer Alexi Lubomirski, will debut exclusively in Marie Claire UK’s May issue, hitting newsstands on 5th April.
‘Because of the experiences of close friends and family members who have had to endure and battle the challenges of breast cancer, I am a passionate supporter of breast health education and charitable causes,’ says Renée.
‘I am honoured and grateful to be partnering with Tommy Hilfiger to raise awareness and funds to support the invaluable work of Breast Health International.’
This year’s bag is made from tan suede and leather, with a herringbone lining and subtle gold trim, and will be available to purchase in Tommy Hilfiger flagship stores, selected department stores and online at tommy.com from 1st May.
Retailing at £275, £100 from every bag sold will be donated to BHI’s Fund for Living campaign – a global initiative launched to support those diagnosed with breast cancer, and help fund day-to-day essentials not covered by health insurance.
