For the last decade, esteemed designer Maison Martin Margiela has featured a T-shirt in honor of of World AIDS Day in every Fall/Winter collection. And this year was no different. For Fall/Winter 2011, the AIDS Charity T-shirt is available for purchase. In classic Margiela style, the tee is stark and simple, but full of meaning. Literally. The Japanese script stamped on the neckline translates to: “There is more action to be done to fight AIDS than wear this T-shirt, but it’s a good start.” A percentage of proceeds goes to AIDES, a French organization dedicated to fighting HIV and taking care of patients living with HIV/AIDS. Log-on to aides.org
to learn more about the charity, and visit Maison Martin Margiela stores to purchase.
