Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos may be shuttering their Lutz & Patmos clothing line, but the pair is making one heckuva exit with a little help from their famous friends—including one Archbishop Desmond Tutu. One of the several marquee names who have made their mark on the label over the years, the South African Nobel Peace Prize Laureate can be spotted among the ranks at Lutz & Patmos’ guest-designer e-commerce shop, which opened on Thursday.

NOBEL WEAR

His sartorial raison d’être? A short-sleeve scoopneck sweater with a shirred raglan yoke, made from organic cotton, along with a detachable beaded necklace by the Hillcrest AIDS Center Trust. With the sale of each sweater-necklace combo—currently available only in “Tutu Pink”—$40 benefits the Desmond Tutu Peace Center, while another $30 goes to further the work at Hillcrest.
