They’ve performed duets and are collaborating on an album, but Lady Gaga and Elton John’s friendship doesn’t stop there.
According to People, the pair are set to launch a fashion line at Macy’s called, “Love Bravery,” which includes clothing and accessories ranging from “keychains to sweatshirts to graffiti-print skateboards (but of course) features piano key prints, heart motifs [and] claw-shaped items (for Gaga’s little monsters) and Gaga’s face (for her mega monster fans).”
Hitting stores on May 9, according to Fortune, the line aims to “make people feel proud of who they are,” and People says that 25 percent of the proceeds will go to Lady Gaga’s and John’s charities.
Designing the line with Lady Gaga’s sister Natali Germanotta and friend, stylist and fashion designer Brandon Maxwell, the pair had charity at the forefront of their minds while creating the line.
“We need to make the world a kinder and braver place where men and women everywhere are empowered to live with compassion,” Gaga said about the line in a statement. “That’s what Born This Way Foundation is all about, that’s what the Elton John AIDS Foundation is all about, and that’s what Love Bravery is all about.”
John summed up the line’s goal as aiming to bridge one’s outward appearance with their inner desires. “I love the idea of fusing who you are on the inside — your passions and dreams — with what you wear on the outside,” he said.
