Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner designs new lockit bracelets for Louis Vuitton and UNICEF

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner designs new lockit bracelets for Louis Vuitton and UNICEF – “I wanted my bracelet to hold luck for all the children whom the proceeds from this bracelet go to,” Sophie Turner explained to her 8 million Instagram followers.

Sophie Turner has landed a new role shining a light on children’s humanitarian issues for Louis Vuitton. The Game of Thrones actress has teamed up with the luxury French label to promote its #makeapromise campaign, which supports UNICEF in raising funds for children who are victims of humanitarian crises worldwide via the sales of its new ‘Silver Lockit’ bracelet.

A total of $100 dollars from the sale of every bracelet goes to the non-profit organization for the cause.

Turner also had a hand in designing the jewellery, which resembles a traditional friendship bracelet adorned with a silver bunny rabbit charm. “I wanted my bracelet to hold luck for all the children whom the proceeds from this bracelet go to,” the star explained to her 8 million Instagram followers. “So I wanted to integrate the idea of luck and also the inclusion of many countries and cultures. I wanted to have the braids made of two colours; red and white. Red is considered a lucky colour in China. And the white coincides with my idea for having the little circular charm on the bracelet, a rabbit. A. Because WHITE rabbits are considered very lucky in the UK and a rabbit foot is considered lucky in many parts of Europe, China, Africa, North and South America.”

On #WorldChildrensDay it’s exciting for me to announce my collaboration with #LVforUNICEF to design a friendship bracelet. I want to explain the significance of the colors and also the charm that I designed. As we know, LV is known for being a brand all about travel and so the brands identity itself is important when collaborating with a charity that is prevalent all over the world. It’s all about bringing people together. I wanted my bracelet to hold luck for all the children whom the proceeds from this bracelet go to.

“The idea of the #makeapromise campaign comes from children,” Michael Burke, chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton, told British Vogue. “When they make a promise, they mean it, and they seal it with a pinky promise. Children show us a simple way to change the world.”

The ongoing partnership between UNICEF and Louis Vuitton has raised over $6million since it began in 2016.
