Julia Roberts designs charity bracelet

Julia Roberts teams up with Armani for charity bracelet

JULIA ROBERTS HAS teamed up with long-term friend Giorgio Armani to design a charity bracelet for the designer’s Emporio label.

The Oscar winning actress collaborated on the red leather bracelet, which will be sold on emporioarmani.com from 1 December, World’s AIDS Day. It features an imprinted tree-for-life motif, and the words Revolution-Evolution-Devotion.

The women’s red version will be sold for $175, with the man’s brown leather version retailing for $195. All proceeds will benefit (PRODUCT) RED, the initiative founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver to help fight AIDS in Africa. Armani was a launch partner with the charity venture, and has since created clothing, jewellery and accessories to help raise funds for the project.

Speaking of the collaboration Armani commented: ‘Julia has helped to create a beautiful accessory for both women and men, which will also be a visible reminder of the part we can all play in fighting AIDS in Africa.’
