Breast Cancer Cure tees are back (and so is this iconic design from the archives)

BCC launches its Summer Tees for a Cure campaign featuring familiar faces and fashion faves

We wouldn’t normally categorise a T-shirt as an accessory, but if we expand the definition to describe small things that make a big impact, Breast Cancer Cure tees fit the bill.

A small purchase that makes a big difference to the collective, every cent you spend on your BCC tee supports breast cancer research in Aotearoa. On top of funding this vital research, wearing a BCC tee is also a small gesture that can mean so much to those bearing the weight of their individual breast cancer journeys. Over the years, they have connected women and families nationwide, as a symbol of strength, solidarity, and BCC’s relentless fight for a breast cancer cure.

This year, 16 local designer labels have lent their creativity to the cause, including Karen Walker, Kowtow, Moochi, Hailwood, Kathryn Wilson, Federation, NYNE, Taylor, Tuesday, Storm, Repertoire, Stella + Gemma, Yvonne Bennetti and the trifecta of Trelise Cooper, Cooper and Coop.

Purely for the throwback factor, our pick of the bunch is an iconic Karen Walker chrysanthemum design, hand-illustrated by the designer’s husband Mikhail Gherman in 2002 for the then-Breast Cancer Research Trust’s inaugural T-shirt collab with Glassons.

This year, you can get your mini-me on board with a limited range of designers’ artwork available in youth sizes 4-14.

Available to pre-order now for delivery from December 11, it’s the perfect stocking filler at just $59 for adult sizes, and $49 for kids.

“Breast Cancer Cure is committed to raising funds for researchers and scientists at universities throughout Aotearoa, with the goal of financing as many projects as possible each year,” says Breast Cancer Cure CEO, Sonja de Mari.
