Sir Elton John and Lady Gaga brave the (fashion) world with their collaborative limited-edition collection for Macy’s, Love Bravery
Ever the bold and outspoken, Sir Elton John and Lady Gaga call for acceptance of self and others by launching a clothing and accessories collection, which will be sold exclusively on Macy’s website on Saturday, April 23, and then in stores starting May 9.
Aptly named Love Bravery, the collection is made to “inspire compassion and combat prejudice,” as quoted by WWD. John elaborates, “Love Bravery is about the compassion on the inside to understand someone’s fears, and the bravery on the outside to stand up for them, and for yourself: to accept others for who they are and to be who you want to be.”
Gaga’s sister Natali Germanotta and stylist-turned-designer Brandon Maxwell also took part in creating the collection in accordance with the two artists’ distinct musical and fashion styles. Other than clothes and accessories, the wide-ranging collection also includes speakers, keychains, water bottles and skateboards.
25 percent of each purchase will go to John and Gaga’s charity organizations, the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Born This Way Foundation respectively. “We need to make the world a kinder and braver place where men and women everywhere are empowered to live with compassion,” says Gaga. “That’s what Born This Way Foundation is all about, that’s what the Elton John AIDS Foundation is all about and that’s what Love Bravery is all about.”
Love Bravery will be available until August 20, 2016.
