Statistics have shown that African American women have a 42 percent higher chance of breast cancer mortality than caucasian women. Both McCartney and Keys aim to raise awareness about the importance of early detection, where there is often inequality to access.
The limited edition two-piece Japanese lace set with delicate silk rouleaux tie straps and silk covered buttons goes on sale October 1 at Stella McCartney stores and stellamccartney.com (where you can pre-order starting today) as well Saks Fifth Avenue and Net-a-Porter. The set also benefits the Linda McCartney Center in Liverpool; McCartney’s mother, Linda McCartney, died of breast cancer in 1998.
Similar to years past, McCartney also designed a post double mastectomy compression bra, the sales of which will support the London-based cancer charity, the Hello Beautiful Foundation.
