Luxury brands mobilize for Ukraine

While France follows the evolution of the Russian invasion in Ukraine, the luxury groups have decided to bring their help.


The luxury brands wish to contribute to the collective effort to help the Ukrainian population, forced to flee the country while the conflict with Russia has been going on for a week now. For example, the LVMH Group has made an initial emergency donation of five million euros to support the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which has been mobilized in Ukraine to help the direct and indirect victims of the conflict. The Group is also organizing a fundraising campaign for the ICRC to enable employees who wish to contribute to this collective effort to do so.


The Heart Fund, launched by LVMH in 2021, has also been particularly active in providing financial and psychological support to all employees, particularly those directly affected by the conflict.


Another group involved, Kering said it would make a “significant donation” to help refugees who had to flee their country: “In order to contribute to humanitarian efforts to provide assistance and support to Ukrainian refugees, Kering will make a significant donation to the UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency (…) We hope for a peaceful resolution of this conflict,” says the group on Instagram.


Balenciaga has deleted all its photos on Instagram and plans to relay the information: “We are for peace and have donated to the WFP to support the first humanitarian aid to Ukrainian refugees. We will open our platforms in the coming days to report and relay information around the situation in Ukraine. Follow the link in the bio to make a donation now“. This is the message on the only remaining publication on the brand’s page.
