When it comes to merging fashion with philanthropy, few brands do it as seamlessly as humanitarian footwear maker Twins For Peace. Founded by brothers Alexandre and Maxime Mussard and dedicated to improving the lives of children in need, Twins For Peace donates shoes, medical supplies, schoolbooks and a portion of their sales to charities and foundations around the world.
The twins’ ongoing collaboration with the Jean-Félicien Gacha Foundation produces a sneaker perfect for spring’s tribal trend (Ricardo Tisci did techno/tribalism for SS14, so yeah it is officially a trend). The Gacha sneaker is hand beaded in Cameroon using traditional techniques. Each pair of Gacha’s represents 50 hours of work using a production process that helps to preserve knowledge of the craft while providing work and education for local women. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Gacha sneaker helps to support the work of the Jean-Félicien Gacha Foundation in Cameroon. So get your spring look together and do some good all at once.
