Sophie Turner has created a bracelet in a bid to raise money for UNICEF.
The Game of Thrones actress worked with French luxury label Louis Vuitton to create the jewellery for the charity, named the Silver Lockit, which was inspired by the idea of luck. Taking inspiration from the cute rabbit tattoo Sophie has on the back of her right arm, the piece was designed with braided red and white cord and features a circular charm rabbit illustration.
“The bracelet is meant to hold luck for the people to whom the funds go to. It’s about bringing people together from all over the world because UNICEF works worldwide and Louis Vuitton is all about travel,” Sophie explained, as reported by Press Association. “Red is considered a lucky colour in China and white coincides with the circular charm of the bracelet; a rabbit. White rabbits and the rabbit-foot are considered lucky in many parts of the world.”
The Silver Lockit retails at $343, and $114 from each bracelet sold will be donated to UNICEF to help the organization deliver life-saving food, water and medicine, as well as give children a safe place to learn. Customers will be able to buy the piece from 20 November (18) – which also marks World Children’s Day around the world.
“UNICEF is delighted that Louis Vuitton will be marking World Children’s Day this year through the launch of the new Silver Lockit bracelet,” added Mark Devlin, UNICEF U.K.’s chief operating officer. “This is made even more special through the collaboration with Sophie Turner, who has put much time and thought into the distinctive design.
“Looking forward, the continued generosity of the partnership will enable us to reach and protect even more of the world’s most vulnerable children and on their behalf, UNICEF would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Sophie Turner, Louis Vuitton, and all its customers.”
