Timothée Chalamet has teamed up with fashion designer Haider Ackermann to create a hoodie to raise funds for charity.

The Oscar-nominated actor has worn a number of Ackermann's designs on the red carpet, and now he has taken his relationship with the fashion expert one step further. They have worked together to create a hoodie to raise funds for Afghanistan Libre, an organisation that fights for women's and children's rights in the country.

"So for a couple of years now @h.a and I have been wanting to make something," Chalamet wrote on Instagram about the project. "Together, in August, we were horrified to learn of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and decided to design a hoodie where 100% of the proceeds will go to @afghanistanlibre, a relief organization with boots on the ground that fights to safeguard women's and children's rights - as those atrocities continue to spread, we should amplify the voices of those silent soldiers."

The white hoodie, which retails for $175 (£130), features a photograph of a young child inside a blue paint splatter design. The hoodie also features the words, "Silent Soldier" and "HA+TC A Common Thread".

Chalamet's friendship with Ackermann has helped solidify his status as one to watch on the red carpet. Ackermann has been the Dune star's go-to designer for the past few years and their most memorable collaboration was on the silver suit he wrote to the 2019 Venice Film Festival. More recently, Ackermann designed the white and black ensemble the actor wore to the 2021 Met Gala in September.
