Lady Gaga teams up with Elton John on clothing line
Lady Gaga and Sir Elton John have collaborated on a clothing line, with a portion of proceeds benefiting their respective charities.
Lady Gaga is thrilled Sir Elton John teamed up with her on the Love Bravery clothing line.
The pop icons have collaborated on a range of limited edition clothes and accessories with American chain Macy's, with 25 per cent of each purchase supporting the charities championed by the celebrities, the Born This Way Foundation and the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
With input from Gaga’s sister Natali Germanotta and designer Brandon Maxwell, the line reflects both artists' style and music, and features bold colours, prints and edgy looks.
"It’s an honour to team up with Sir Elton John to create this line with Macy’s,” Gaga, 30, said, according to WWD. "We need to make the world a kinder and braver place where men and women everywhere are empowered to live with compassion."
The clothing range includes sleeveless T-shirts, crop tops, sweatshirts, tops with metallic lettering, and scarves printed with piano key graphics. There's also a collection of fun accessories such as, beanies, keychains, enamel pins, patches, clutches shaped as sunglasses and hearts as well as Neoprene backpacks printed with the word "love".
Of the line, Elton, 69, said that he liked the concept of fusing who you are on the inside with what your wear on the outside.
"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. So I’m thrilled we are collaborating on this project and delighted Macy’s understood our dream to connect with people this way," he explained.
Everything in the collection is under $100 (£68), with prices from $12 to $99.
The line will be available to purchase online from Saturday (30Apr16) and will be in about 150 Macy stores from 9 May (16).
