FROM THE HEART: French designer Jean Paul Gaultier has joined forces with Carla Bruni-Sarkozy by designing a T-shirt to raise awareness for the “Born HIV Free” campaign spearheaded by France’s first lady. The Breton-style short-sleeve shirt, featuring a heart logo over one breast, is being sold with the French issue of Elle magazine that hit newsstands Friday. Véronique Philipponnat, editor in chief of Elle France, said 40,000 issues of the magazine — or 15 to 20 percent of the entire print run — would come packaged with the T-shirt, at a cover price of 4.90 euros, or $6.45, compared with a regular cover price of 2 euros, or $2.65. Like Bruni-Sarkozy, whose brother died of AIDS, Gaultier has been personally affected by the disease. “Like all those who have lost a loved one, I feel, of course, closely concerned by the fight against AIDS. I myself lost the love of my life because of this disease,” he told the magazine, referring to his partner Francis Menuge, who died in 1990. — Joelle Diderich
