FANS IN CANNES: A limited edition fan designed by Louis Vuitton in collaboration with Spanish actress Rossy de Palma will go on sale on Monday for one day only in Vuitton’s Cannes store on the Croisette. The heat-beating accessory is already on sale for 400 euros, or $546 at current exchange, in a selection of Louis Vuitton stores in Spain until June 30, with proceeds going to the OrphanAid Africa charity, of which de Palma is an ambassador. Also on display will be a one-off fan, adorned with ostrich feathers, dubbed Extraordinary, also designed by Vuitton and de Palma, that will be sold at a charity auction over the coming months, also in aid of OrphanAid Africa.

Meanwhile, Spanish actress Victoria Abril is also putting her star power behind OrphanAid Africa via fashion e-retail site, which will transfer 1 euro, or $1.30, to the association each time an order is placed. Modz carries clothes from brands like Nocollection, Stella Cadente or Antik Batik. “It’s a good way to mix useful and pleasure,” says Abril.
