Diane von Furstenberg links with Girl Scouts of the USA for limited-edition accessories
Diane von Furstenberg has partnered with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) for a two-piece collection of limited-edition accessories, in honor of International Women's Day and Girl Scout Week.
The collaboration includes a silk scarf retailing at $150 and wristlet priced at $45, both decorated with a special DVF print using the Girl Scouts' trefoil symbol.
"Working with a woman of Diane's prestige to create these pieces has been such a privilege," said GSUSA CEO Sylvia Acevedo.
"Her trailblazing work and her commitment to supporting female ambition reflect the values we've instilled in our girls for over 100 years. We're so excited that, through this collaboration, Girl Scout alums and women of all ages can support Girl Scouts and the next generation of female leaders by proudly wearing these original Diane von Furstenberg designs."
A philanthropist, von Furstenberg's partnership with the Girl Scouts is the latest expression of the designer's commitment to female empowerment. Currently, she serves on the board of Vital Voices, a non-governmental organization that supports female leaders and entrepreneurs, and in 2010, she established the DVF Awards to honor and provide grants to women who have displayed leadership, strength and courage in their commitment to their causes.
"Collaborating with Girl Scouts is a true honor for me, and an opportunity to allow girls and women to feel #InCharge," said Diane von Furstenberg, referencing her manifesto for championing women.
"I'm thrilled to bring this vibrant print to life, featuring the iconic Girl Scout trefoil, and to donate a unique design to the premier leadership organization for girls."
Prior to von Furstenberg, GSUSA has collaborated with fashion designers including Bill Blass and Halston.
The DVF X GSUSA collaboration is available for a limited time through Girl Scouts of the USA.
