The tree of knowledge might very well be a fig tree.
Fashion and charity have been more hand in hand the past decade than Brangelina. Toms, the shoes that are as common in gayborhoods across America as they are on the feet of children in Africa, caught our queer eyes with a unique, forward-thinking footwear design and a simple promise to provide a pair for African children in need with every purchase.
The latest to do good by making us look good arrives in Figs.
Crafting modern, sassy ties and bowties, the Figs brand eschews exactly what it seeks to aid in impoverished Africa: academia.
Simply put, for every purchase of one of Figs studious, British dandy-licious ties or bowties, the brand will donate a school uniform to a child in Africa hoping to begin an education.
Even if Madonna or America’s aforementioned premiere royal couple didn’t command us to support the education of impoverished children, we wouldn’t have to think twice to jump on the Figs deal. After all, it’s fashion forwarding thinking!
