Valentino teams up with Cash & Rocket for collection on Stylebop
Cash & Rocket's charity partners will receive 20% from sales of the exclusive collection
Valentino and charity Cash & Rocket have partnered to create a capsule collection of ready-to-wear, accessories and small leather goods to celebrate the 2015 Cash & Rocket charity tour. The collection launches on 14 May exclusively on Stylebop.com, with 20% of proceeds from sales going to C&R's chosen charity partners, Shine on Sierra Leone, Sumbandila and OrphanAid Africa.
The travel-themed collection has an urban camouflage colour palette and a utilitarian look. Cash & Rocket founder Julie Brangstrup and Stylebop creative director Leila Yavari (pictured above) wear jumpsuits from the collection, which also includes jackets, shorts, bags, chic driving gloves, sneakers and logo T-shirts.
Select pieces from the collection feature the heart motif that represents the Italian fashion house and Cash & Rocket's partnership. Valentino's Rockstud heels have also received the hearty makeover.
For the fourth consecutive year, Cash & Rocket is raising funds for its chosen charities by getting some of the world's most successful women to turn rally car drivers and tour across multiple countries. This year, the tour starts on 15 May in London and travels through Paris, Lyon and Milan before ending in Cannes on 19 May. The women in Stylebop's team – models Elena Perminova, Anna Cleveland and Arizona Muse among them – will be travelling in a red Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe.
