Advertising campaigns for the new Tees – one of which features a photo of her father, Paul McCartney, with The Beatles – feature Claudia Schiffer, Gwyneth Paltrow and Keira Knightley in photos shot by McCartney’s sister, Mary.
’It’s a real honor to be involved in such a tremendous cause and be a part of the Red Nose Day campaign 2009," said Stella McCartney. "The designs of the T-shirts were inspired by iconic images of iconic people by iconic photographers and adding an element of humor to them.’
McCartney has designed each t-shirt with iconic images from famous photographers like Herb Ritts, David Bailey and her mother, Linda McCartney. Every t-shirt sold helps raises vital funds for Comic Relief. 100% of the cotton has been sourced from Fairtrade certified organic cotton co-operatives in Africa.
“I wanted to focus on photographs where people are happy and create a charity t-shirt that would become a staple of a person’s wardrobe,” she said.
The Tees are available at TK Maxx stores in the UK for £9.99, and more information can be found at this special website.
