Valentino and stylebop.com have connected with Cash & Rocket for two exciting initiatives to help raise awareness and funds for Cash & Rocket official charity partners: Shine On Sierra Leone, OAfrica and Sumbandila. 

The first of which is a 20 piece capsule collection that has been inspired by a love of travel (which the 4th Fund Race might have played a part in, more on that later.) Valentino's craftsmanship has been applied to a series of reinterpreted utility designs in a palette of olive, army and black hues. 

Leather accessories, gloves, shoes and bags, receive the signature Valentino metal stud treatment, and the studded heart motif, which has become the symbol of this ongoing charitable collaboration adorns select items. 20 percent of all sales will go towards the three African charities. Discover the collection in more detail via the gallery below.

The black leather driving gloves from the collection will come in handy for the 70 women from the worlds of fashion, film music and art who will be racing across the continent in the 4th Fund Race, which darts from London to Cannes via Paris, Annecy, and Milan in thirty five branded vintage and luxury cars. They are due to start their engines on May 15. 

Both the race and the accompanying capsule collection aim to raise global awareness and increase funds for three charities in Africa, which provide life-changing support for women and children in Africa through education and healthcare.
