Bloomingdale’s has teamed up with boxing brand Everlast and 14 fashion designers to really help “knock out” Breast Cancer.
The retailer commissioned the 14 designers to decorate a pair of Everlast boxing gloves, which are being auctioned off on Charitybuzz.com. Proceeds from the auction benefit BCRF. Participating designers include: Alice + Olivia, APL, Bally, Bloomingdale’s, Charlotte Tilbury, Fila, MCM, Michael Aram, Rag & Bone, Ralph Lauren, Sachin & Babi, Sean John, Swarovski and Zac Posen.
This is the 14th consecutive year that Bloomingdale’s has supported breast cancer awareness and treatment during the month of October. This year’s efforts will support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), The Carey Foundation and the Marisa Acocella Foundation.
A TKO PUNCH
Consumers can view the gloves on the arcade level of the Bloomingdale’s 59th Street store throughout the month of October (punching bags are set up to bring the installation to life and let consumers let off some steam!), and Everlast merchandise and apparel will be on hand.
For that Instagrammable moment to help spread the word, the Bloomingdale’s 59th Street will feature larger-than-life boxing gloves by Ghostly Ferns artist Jen Mussari will be on display, creating awareness for breast cancer. In addition, on October 20th, Bloomingdale’s around the country will host Everlast boxing classes.
