Timothée Chalamet has proven himself to be quite the red carpet showstopper since his 2017 rise to fame, often opting for the luxe and unexpected designs of Haider Ackermann. The pair has since acted as a dynamic duo, working together for years and creating significant style moments that hold a permanent place in the menswear zeitgeist. The actor and designer have joined forces once again, this time to design a hoodie in support of Afghan women’s rights in the midst of a humanitarian crisis. Marking their first collaboration, both Chalamet and Ackermann took to Instagram to reveal the charitable project.
As this summer saw the authoritative return of the Taliban in Afghanistan, basic human rights of women and girls have rapidly diminished. With this humanitarian crisis in mind, all proceeds from Chalamet and Ackermann’s design will go towards the nonprofit organization Afghanistan Libre, working towards reimplementing and expanding the rights of Afghan women and children.
Dubbed “HATC”, the Silent Soldier sweatshirt has been launched under the combined initials of Ackermann and Chalamet. The white hoodie is splashed with a blue painted print of a young Afghan woman with the embroidered phrases “common thread” and “silent soldier” sprawled across the front. Clad with the Afghanistan Libre logo stamped on the sleeve, the hoodie goes for € 175, hovering around $200 USD. Make your last minute holiday shopping meaningful with the help of Timothée Chalamet and Haider Ackermann.
