Luxury knitwear company Lutz and Patmos has collaborated with celebrities including Kirsten Dunst, Julianne Moore, Liv Tyler, and supermodel Natalia Vodianova. This season, the brand's teamed up with—wait for it—South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu to create a short-sleeve crew-neck with a detachable necklace. Tutu is a cleric and an outspoken activist against apartheid, AIDS, and poverty. The sweater (with necklace) retails for $425 and is available at, Barneys and Kirna Zabete. $40 of the purchase of each sweater is donated to the Desmond Tutu Peace Center and $30 of the purchase of each necklace is donated to the Hillcrest Aids Centre Trust.
