The designer has created a range of tees in aid of Red Nose Day 2013
Stella McCartney has put her design talents to charitable use, creating this year’s official Red Nose Day T-shirts for Comic Relief.
The British designer has created a capsule collection of limited edition tees – all depicting black and white images of iconic faces with a fun red nose twist.
Close friend Kate Moss, who will also model the line along with David Walliams in a promotional campaign, is featured on one with a series of red spots printed on top of her picture. In another, silver screen legend Marilyn Monroe is given a red nose and giant black spectacles to wear alongside her twinkling diamond earrings, while comedy genius Tommy Cooper sports similar attire as well as his signature Fez. Even Stella’s dad, Sir Paul McCartney is featured, alongside the rest of The Beatles.
The tops, which are all produced in Africa using Fairtrade organic cotton, are available in both adult and children’s sizes and will be sold exclusively at TK Maxx stores and online from today with a slice of the profits going towards the Comic Relief charity.
McCartney said of the range: ‘I admire the Red Nose Day team and their achievement for this incredible worthwhile cause. To be able to be a small part of supporting that, is extremely rewarding.’
Prices for the T-shirts start at £5.99 for a kid’s top and £9.99 for adult sizes. Red Nose Day takes place on Friday 15th March.
What’s more, TK Maxx has launched a new app that aims to raise a further £10,000 for Comic Relief. The ’50 Ways to Wear It’ app urges people to upload images showing how they style their Red Nose Day T-shirt. For every upload, TK Maxx will donate £1 to the charity.
