A new accessory put forth by Louis Vuitton is working to support vulnerable children around the world. Designed by the luxury fashion house’s men’s artistic director, Virgil Abloh, the Silver Lockit bracelet is the latest addition to the LVforUNICEF collection.
The bracelets retail for $430 apiece, with $100 from each purchase going toward UNICEF. The funds will provide access to basic resources like water, sanitation, nutrition, education, health, and protection services to children who live in conflict or disaster-prone areas. Among these children are those seeking refuge from the conflict in Syria, as well as host communities in neighboring Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, and Turkey.

The bracelets come in four bold colors: black, orange, celadon green, and cerulean speckled with yellow. The design, influenced by Abloh’s spring/summer 2020 collection, features a twisted cord linked by a small silver padlock emblazoned with the fashion house’s famous logo.
The Silver Lockit also gets its inspiration from the tumbler lock, a 19th-century invention by Georges Vuitton. The lock was intended to protect a client’s most precious belongings and, in 2016, was officially selected “as a symbol of sealing one’s promise to help children at risk,” according to a press release.
