What makes a house a home? For some, it’s décor–collecting objet d’art and conversation pieces from around the world; a painting from Madrid, Venetian glass, or a Turkish lamp purchased from an open-air bazaar. Now, you can continue to decorate and enrich your home with new finds, while also financially supporting those who have been affected by COVID-19. La Ligne, a woman’s retailer founded by two former Vogue staffers and Rag & Bone’s former Head of Business, has launched a coronavirus relief effort, the Giving Back initiative. A new project in the initiative, Home Editions, allows you to both purchase artwork and donate to No Kid Hungry, a nonprofit working to end child hunger.
In partnership with Philadelphia-based screen printers, Awesome Dudes Printing, and artists Julian Brown and Ross Stirling, La Ligne is selling five, limited-edition, 19″ x 25″ prints, available on lalignenyc.com until May 12. Each print is handmade by Awesome Dudes Printing and features the form and shape of lines and stripes–a large part of La Ligne’s brand identity. All the prints are sold for $45, and all proceeds will be given to No Kid Hungry.
Although their New York flagship store on 996 Madison Avenue is closed due to the current global pandemic, La Ligne has exhibited the prints in their storefront, in a show of solidarity to “keep New York feeling like home.”

Happy first birthday to our Madison Avenue store, our first of hopefully many to come. While we’ve been closed since March, we dressed her up today to celebrate with artworks we’ve created in collaboration with our friends @ross_juice and Julian Brown. These limited edition prints are available online now and will be made by @awesome_dudes_printing, a 13 year old print shop that has been hit hard by the effects of the pandemic. We will be donating 100% of profits to @nokidhungry. Bonne anniversaire 996, can’t wait to see you again. #noplacelikehome
