Timmy knew what he was doing when he posted on Instagram today announcing that he and designer Haider Ackermann had designed a hoodie together. The heartthrob is the king of hoodies. Remember when he wore a Glossier hoodie to an Uncut Gems pop-up? Or was credited in his GQ cover with owning the pastel-pink Juicy Couture zip-up he was photographed in for the shoot? Or when he wore a glittery one to the red-carpet premiere of The King? Of course you do. And if you’re thinking, Really, another high-end “fashion hoodie?, know that this one is for a good cause.
“In August, we were horrified to learn of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and decided to design a hoodie where 100% of the proceeds will go to @afghanistanlibre: a relief organization with boots on the ground that fights to safeguard women’s and children’s rights — as those atrocities continue to spread, we should amplify the voices of those silent soldiers,” Chalamet wrote in his Instagram caption.
Considering Chalamet’s fanbase, it’s safe to assume you can expect to see this hoodie being sported by young men and women all over the streets of New York. Plus, with a price of 150 euros (that’s 230-something USD), he should be able to donate a solid chunk of change to Afghanistan Libre … though maybe not more than if he just donated part of his Dune paycheck and just skipped making a thing for people to buy? I can’t afford the hoodie, so who am I to judge? At least he decided to design something that will bring some good into the world. The hoodie is currently available at hatc2021.com in sizes medium and large, and is likely to sell fast. Like, very fast. You know how Chalamet fans are.
