With COVID-19 impacting on the education and lives of children around the globe, Net-A-Porter has partnered with leading luxury brand Gabriela Hearst for an exclusive handbag initiative to benefit Save the Children’s global relief efforts. Launching today, the initiative will allow shoppers to bag a must-have accessory from one of today’s most covetable brands and support a worthy cause at the same time.
A highlight of the initiative, which marks the third time Net-A-Porter has brought Gabriela’s most sought-after bags to customers, is the release of the Baez. First seen on the Spring / Summer 2020 runway, the bag has been branded by Elizabeth von der Goltz, Global Buying Director at Net-A-Porter as “the ultimate investment style for years to come.” Featuring a turnlock closure and signature rose gold hardware, which gently unfolds and can be worn folded or styled as a small tote, the Baez is available alongside the iconic Nina, Demi, and Diana bags, and the hand knitted cashmere crossover shoulder bags on Net-A-Porter. But be quick – the initiative is running for a limited two-week period.

Celebrated for her commitment to both sustainability and philanthropy, Gabriela Hearst launched her eponymous brand with a view to creating timeless ready-to-wear and accessory collections that honour craft and detail and prioritise tradition over trend. Her “honest luxury” ethos, combined with her easy chic modern aesthetic, has seen the brand garner a legion of celebrity fans including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Emma Stone, and Alicia Vikander; as well as serious wait-lists.

Having been appointed to the board of trustees of Save the Children in 2018, the Net-A-Porter initiative is very close to Gabriela’s heart. “The only way to navigate through a Covid-19 post-world is with values, purpose and substance,” she says. “Any company or individual in the position to help has the duty to do so.”

Net-A-Porter will donate 10% of profits from handbag sales to Save the Children’s global Coronavirus Response Fund and Gabriela Hearst has agreed to match this donation. Funds raised will go towards keeping children around the world healthy, educated and protected during the COVID-19 crisis. Save the Children is working with communities in more than 110 countries to provide food, learning resources, healthcare, hygiene information and training to reduce the spread of the virus and keep children safe in their homes and communities.
