Balenciaga’s Koala for a Good Cause

In response to Australia’s ongoing bushfire crisis and in addition to the Kering Group‘s $1 million AUD donation, Balenciaga has decided to release T-shirts and hoodies that feature an image of the vulnerable Australian Koala.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of these pieces will be donated to the most appropriate local conservation organization selected by the Kering Group and Balenciaga sustainability experts.

Balenciaga’s unisex Australia Bushfire Disaster Koala Hoodie and T-shirt are set to be sold exclusively from today on Balenciaga’s website.

The Hoodie

Trending now is the hoodie, but not just a hoodie… I am talking oversized, logo embellished, expensive and sold-out hoodies! The streets of New York, London, Milan and Paris have been filled with showgoers cocooned in those must-haves, and celebrities like Rihanna and Kim Kardashian are stepping out in hoodies that don’t call for any pants.

Suddenly, the hoodie becomes a luxurious wardrobe piece that you can dress up with a pencil or ruffled skirt and heels. But how much should you pay for a hoodie?

My favorite this F/W 2017: Cotton hoodie by Balenciaga
it comes with a hefty price tag of approximately CHF 600.00.

If you are maxing out your credit card for one of these beauties below, don’t feel guilty! It is worth this season… and if you don’t want to, no worries. You can always buy a CHF 10.00 hoodie and maybe look just as cool.
