Julia Roberts and Giorgio Armani Unite to Fight AIDS
The actress and designer are collaborating to make a bracelet to raise money for the cause
Julia Roberts and Giorgio Armani have teamed up to design a bracelet that will be sold to raise money for the battle against AIDS, the Giorgio Armani house announced Tuesday, according to Reuters news agency.
Proceeds from the sales will go to Product Red, an organization founded by Irish singer Bono to fight AIDS in Africa. The bracelet will be available for women in red for $175, and for men in brown for $195. Both will have the “tree of life” symbol imprinted on them, along with the words “Revolution-Evolution-Devotion Tree.”
The new Roberts-Armani design will be available online at emporioarmani.com on Dec. 1, World AIDS Day, and will be distributed internationally beginning in February.
This is the first time Armani has joined forces with a celebrity for a project. Roberts is a close friend of the designer and a loyal supporter of his creations.
