Opening Ceremony founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have collaborated with Calvin Klein to create a cotton Kate Moss tribute, with all proceeds going to amfAR. The tees bears two different images of Kate, unsurprisingly, back in the Calvin Klein-Mark Wahlberg days. Though the David Sims images are from a 1993 Calvin Klein underwear campaign, according to Leon they "might as well have been shot today, they're so fresh." That's what he told the New York Times, with Lim adding "Calvin Klein had a specific point of view that was innovative. I don't think that we like being nostalgic or bringing things back for the sake of trends. It's about moments that have been ingrained in us."

This is the latest in a succession of OC-Calvin collaborations, but the first to benefit amfAR — the Foundation for AIDS Research — which Elizabeth Taylor founded in the 80s. The unisex tees are $85USD: peep them here
