Timothée Chalamet Is Launching A Charitable Fashion Initiative

Timothée Chalamet and fashion designer Haider Ackermann have announced the launch of a charity initiative on clothing, marking the actor’s first fashion collaboration.

The duo partnered for a charity hoodie to benefit Afghanistan Libre, an organization that fights for the rights of women and children in the country, by sharing the news on their respective social media channels.

“So for a couple of years now, @ha and I have been wanting to do something,” Chalamet shared on Instagram.

“Together, in August, we were horrified to learn about the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and decided to design a hoodie where 100% of the proceeds will go to @afghanistanlibre, a humanitarian organization with flat boots fighting to safeguard women and children’s rights: while these atrocities continue to spread, we should amplify the voices of those silent soldiers ”.

Both men posted photos of themselves wearing the hoodie, which features a child’s photograph in a blue paint splatter design.

The details read “Silent Soldier” and “HA + TC A Common Thread”, referring to the initials of Chalamet and Ackermann.

The hoodie itself retails for £ 175 ($ 230) on the collaboration website, hatc2021.com.

Despite this being their first official collaboration, Ackermann has long been Chalamet’s go-to designer, dressing him up in custom pieces for red carpet appearances around the world. Most recently, Ackermann designed a custom casual white dress that Chalamet wore to the 2021 Met Gala (of which he was co-chair).

Chalamet has marked some of the most important milestones in his career in the clothes of the French designer, in fact, in particular, the viral silver satin dress with belt that he wore to the premiere of The King in 2019 and the top and the sparkling black pants with bare shoulders she wore to the premiere of Dune at the Venice Film Festival earlier this year.

With that in mind, it’s fair to assume that this is just the beginning of “A Common Thread”.
