The American Red Cross goes posh

What happens when you mix one of Fashion Week's top labels and the American Red Cross?

You get fabulous bags for a cause!

Louis Vuitton is celebrating 150 years of excellence with a special tribute to the America Red Cross. Not only are they donating 10 percent of online sales of four iconic monogram pieces: Keepall, Speedy, Noe and Alma; but they are hosting a charity auction at Southeby's in London on November 19.

Good 'ole Louis hasn't stopped there though. In a collaboration with Marc Jacobs, Annie Leibovitz, Damien Hirst, Ferran Adria, Gustavo Santaolalla and Patrick-Louis Vuitton, special travel-themed creations have been created to benefit the French Red Cross, including a one-of-a-kind Red Cross kit.

Pause for the description... get your pocketbooks ready...

"The hard-sided case in monogram canvas, equipped with Louis Vuitton's signature natural leather handle, brass S-lock and corners, opens frontally to reveal an array of red and grey aluminum medicine boxes arranged in such a way as to form the familiar emblem of the RedCross. The logo of the Red Cross is hand-painted on the front of the case.”

If something a little easier on your pocketbooks sounds better for the holidays, check out our awesome store for other fabulous gifts.
