Lutz & Patmos Sweater: Fashionable Philanthropy

Fashion & Style: For Spring 2010, Lutz & Patmos has teamed up with tireless activist Desmond Tutu to create an adorable sweater you can feel good about wearing. The color palette (Tutu Pink - don't you just love it? -, eggshell and black) is perfect for spring and incorporates one of this season's biggest trends, the statement necklace.

Bonus ladies - it's detachable so you can spread the fashionable good will to your whole wardrobe. This limited edition sweater sells for $425 and is available at, Barneys and Kirna Zabete. The best part is a portion of all sales go to the Desmond Tutu Peace Center and the Hillcrest Aids Centre.

The chic band collar and color were inspired by his signature robe, so here's to hoping some of that activism wears off on you!
