Anyone remembers the viral “The Earth from Above”? A series of photographs, originally titled “La Terre vue du Ciel” by Yann Arthus-Betrand became viral a few years back. The unimaginable beauty of our Earth seen from the air enchanted the eye and warmed the heart.
Yann Arthus-Betrand’s eye just turned into a movie project with Luc Besson’s Europacorp; their project, HOME will be launched in 43 days, June 5th 2009. (the story continues right after the jump with more pictures and a video!)
Designers have teamed up to celebrate the special event – Home, Yann Arthus-Betrand’s movie: Yves Saint Laurent presented a limited edition line made from Organic cotton that will also be sold starting with June 5th.
Designing for a good cause doesn’t imply the design is less important than the cause itself. The t-shirts don’t look so good in my opinion. Regardless of the bad merch case they’ve got going for Home, I can’t wait for the movie! (via Home, WWD)
