Louis Vuitton has renewed its partnership with UNICEF for yet another year, and the protagonist of the collaboration will once again be the Silver Lockit bracelet. Inspired by the tumbler lock that Georges Vuitton invented in 1890 to protect his clients' belongings, this year artistic director of menswear Virgil Abloh has reimagined the bracelet in four new colourways.
Available in "Celadon Green", "Blue", "Orange", and "Black", the latest take on the Silver Lockit features a thicker adjustable rope cord, to which are attached four 925 sterling silver chain links, and an engraved silver padlock.
Since 2016, the partnership between Lous Vuitton and UNICEF has raised approximately 10 million euros, and for every bracelet sold, €100 will be donated to UNICEF's efforts in providing water, sanitation, nutrition, education, health, and protection to people in need around the world. This support will notably allow UNICEF to help Syrian refugee children and their families, including those living in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, and Turkey, along with children whose lives have been affected by recent natural disasters.
The UNICEF x Louis Vuitton Silver Lockit bracelets will be available in more than 150 Louis Vuitton stores worldwide, and online at louisvuitton.com
