For Spring 2010 Lutz & Patmos teamed up with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a South African cleric and activist who’s been a key player in the fight against apartheid, AIDS and poverty. The sweater is a short sleeve scoop neck with a relaxed fit, band collar and detachable beaded necklace. The collar and color were inspired by his signature robe. The collaboration is one sweater available in three colors: black, eggshell and tutu pink.
The sweater with necklace retails for $425and is available at www.lutzandpatmos.com, Barneys and Kirna Zabete. $40 of the purchase of each sweater is donated to the Desmond Tutu Peace Center. $30 of the purchase of each necklace is donated to the Hillcrest Aids Centre Trust.
