The British actress Helena Bonham Carter nominated for the Oscar for Best Actress for The Wings of Love and for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for The King’s Speech, this year undertook a new initiative to help women and children in difficulty.
The actress turned out to be a novel by designing a line of “guilt free” cashmere elements, with Brora, Kate Middleton‘s favorite knitwear brand, with the aim of helping the international organization Save the Children that this year has celebrated its centenary. The limited edition collection is represented by maxi-scarves model sport fans with the Phenomenal Woman inscription. Long 180 centimeters are inspired by the verses of “A phenomenal woman” by Maya Angelou, the iconic poet and writer of African American women, as well as a symbol of girl power all over the world.
«The scarf was born with my desire to revive the suffragettes. Last year was the centenary of women’s suffrage, this year is the centenary of Save the Children and its founder Eglantyne Jebb – although she was not a suffragette – in 1921 she wrote the charter of the rights of the child “, commented the actress ambassador for Save The Children for seven years now.
The collection also features a ballerina-style top in open-work knit, lace-effect sleeves with a Belle Époque inspiration and an over-sized hat with an Aran ponpon. All made entirely of pure cashmere.
The Scottish brand will donate 10% of the proceeds to education, health and child protection projects around the world. Among the collaborations to support these projects there are also the lines designed by the former top model Erin O’Connor and by the English model and writer Laura Bailey.
We buy a garment and help children around the world to have adequate living conditions and a better future.
