Fashion For Philanthropy: "Louis Vuitton | (RED)" Collaboration Unveiled
Luxury giant Louis Vuitton continues its longstanding history of creative collaboration by joining forces with (RED) — a charitable organization created to harness the power of consumers for good — to release Louis Vuitton | (RED), a new perfumed candle in support of (RED)'s fight to end AIDS. For each candle sold, $60 USD will go directly to the Global Fund to fight AIDS and help finance programs around the world.
The candle's design was created by Marc Newson, who worked in tandem with Louis Vuitton Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud. Inspired by the color red and the scent of a summer garden, Jacques selected the highest-quality natural ingredients to develop a unique fragrance that invokes comfort, optimism, and warmth.
Barack Ferrazzano represented Louis Vuitton in this strategic partnership with a team led by Fashion, Luxury & Retail chair Daniel L. Dominguez, along with Intellectual Property co-chair Scott J. Slavick, attorneys Kaitlyn E. Kelly, and Brandon P. Knop.
