The exclusive bag will feature a (RED) inspired design and photograph by Helena Christensen, who personally attended the launch at Maasmechelen Village, one of the nine Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages near Brussels, on Tuesday 6 November.  

The limited-edition tote bag will be exclusively available for sale in Maasmechelen Village to mark World AIDS Day on 1 December. It will be available across the Collection of all Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages in Europe from 1 February 2013 as part of the launch of the (RED) Is The New Black campaign. The bag will be available to buy for €10 each with all profits donated to the Global Fund.

The (RED) Is The New Black campaign will be a vibrant celebration of all things coloured red for the month of February 2013. Visitors to the nine Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages will discover a lively programme showcasing the very best promotions from international luxury fashion and lifestyle brands, as well as unique in-Village animation to create a world where the colour red truly comes alive.  

Chic Outlet Shopping® and (RED) are working towards a larger partnership for the month of February, in conjunction with Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year, where all nine Villages will be transformed into all things (RED) with special activities to raise awareness and funds in the fight against AIDS.

"We are proud to partner with (RED) in collaboration with Helena Christensen to help support the Global Fund in their pursuit of an AIDS-free world. Our goal is to leverage the power of our global platform to raise awareness of this important cause amongst our international shoppers. This partnership is in keeping with the Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages' ongoing commitment to supporting humanitarian projects around the world."

Desirée Bollier, Chief Executive, Value Retail Management

"This partnership with Chic Outlet Shopping® is an exciting one for us - it's an opportunity to spread the (RED) message across Europe and to give consumers another way to buy (RED). We're thrilled to have Helena Christensen launching the partnership - she has been an incredible friend to (RED) over the years and supporter of our mission to help eliminate AIDS."

Deborah Dugan, CEO, (RED)

"When Chic Outlet Shopping approached me with this project I was excited to get involved. I have been a longtime supporter of (RED) and am thrilled that the sale of the bag will contribute to the goal of achieving an AIDS-free generation by 2015."
