Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry and luxury shoe designer Christian Louboutin have teamed up with Saks Fifth Avenue to fight cancer in the 2016 Key To The Cure campaign, now in its 18th year.
Louboutin has created a limited edition T-shirt, which campaign ambassador Berry models in photo above. The white T-shirt features a trompe l’oeil necklace and an illustration of a pink stiletto on it, which Berry wears with ripped jeans and nude pumps.
It will be available at all Saks Fifth Avenue stores, including the Houston Galleria location, or online at saks.com and saksoff5th.com on October 1. It retails for $35, with 100 percent of proceeds going to Stand Up To Cancer, an organization created to accelerate innovative cancer research through collaboration among leading scientists from different institutions and disciplines who work together to deliver new therapies to patients quickly.
In Houston, Saks and Memorial Hermann Hospital Breast Care Centers will host a Key To the Cure kickoff party on October 26. The retailer's annual charity shopping weekend will kick off on October 27.
Saks Fifth Avenue has donated nearly $40 million to cancer research and treatment organizations throughout the United States since the campaign began 18 years ago.
