The fashion world and beyond mourned Oscar de la Renta’s death in October 2014, after the designer passed away from cancer. In his honor, his namesake brand has partnered with Care+Wear to create an exclusive sweatshirt designed for people receiving cancer or other medical treatment via a central line that is accessed at the chest. Ten percent of the net sales will be donated to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, where Oscar de la Renta hosted the annual Designed for a Cure fundraiser and held a fashion show featuring patients and physicians wearing his designs in February 2014. Oscar de la Renta is also donating 500 men and women’s Chest Access Hoodies to the Sylvester Center.
The Care+Wear x ODLR chest and port access pullover hoodie provides maximum comfort for the wearer, made from ultra-soft French terry that is antimicrobial and EPA-approved. The sweatshirt has two diagonal zippers that allow for discrete, clinical access to medical port areas for treatments including chemotherapy, dialysis, long term blood draws, and antibiotics. Both the men’s and women’s hoodies are available in navy, with an additional rose color offered for women.
The Care+Wear x ODLR Chest and Port Access Hoodie, priced at , is now available on careandwear.com.END
