6 fashion and jewellery designers trying to support Ukraine

The catwalks in Paris and Milan were filled with political messages as the fashion industry tried to understand the horrors unfolding in Ukraine. Some of Europe’s most prestigious luxury brands have started their own initiatives. They are creating unique pieces or donating part of their profits to support the people of Ukraine. These are the brands that are offering their support, ranging from fine jewellery to British knitwear to ready-to-wear high-fashion.

Roxanne First
Until 11 March

Roxanne First, a London-based fine jeweller, donated a ‘Love” necklace in yellow gold and sapphires to help raise funds for British-Ukrainian aid. Roxanne First will pick a random donor to receive the necklace and also donate £3,000 to the Just Giving page. The fundraiser has raised nearly £S9,000 so far, exceeding their original goal of £3,000.

Cressida Jamieson

Cressida Jamieson is the fashion and design industry’s favorite embroiderer. She has created custom designs for Carey Mulligan and Matilda Goad, as well as for Laura Bailey. Cressida Jamieson designed a Tshirt in collaboration to charity Choose Love. All proceeds will go to vital aid and services for people still living in or fleeing the country. The classic white cotton t-shirt costs £85. It is embroided with a Ukrainian flag love center and ribbon that features the words “Choose Love”. Simple message that has big impact.

Robinson Pelham
Permanent

Robinson Pelham, a Chelsea favorite, has designed a series of bracelets called “Wear Your Support” that can be worn to show support for Ukraine. The brand’s Murano glass beads are used to make the Arcadia bracelet. It is available in four sizes. Each bracelet is priced at £100, with 100% going to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

Chinti & Parker
Jusqu’à March 31

This British cashmere brand, known for their colourful and playful knits, will donate 100% of the profits of the aptly-named ‘Love’ sweater or T-shirt to Save the Children in partnership with the Disasters Emergency Committee. Anna Singh and Rachael, the label’s founders, stated that they have “watched in horror as the conflict in Ukraine escalated over the past weeks” and hope that the move will “spread love instead of war.”

KNWLS
Until 20 March

The brand, which is based in south London and was designed by Charlotte Knowles with her partner Alexandre Arsenault – recently nominated for an LVMH Prize nomination because of its feminine ready-to wear pieces – will donate all profits from any order placed on their website. The brand is offering 40% discount on all its pieces in support of Unicef and British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

Bibi van der Velden
In progress

Bibi van den Velden, a Dutch fine jeweller whose designs have been worn many times by Rihanna and Ruth Wilson, has created a unique piece. All proceeds will go to Unicef. The Ukrainian Alligator earrings can be worn as a pendant or as an earring. They are made of 18k gold with specially sourced gemstones. They make up the colours that make up the Ukrainian flag. The jeweller said, “As a mother, I am heartbroken at what is happening in Ukraine to families and children especially,” “The people of Ukraine now need our support and love more than ever.”
