Jane Fonda Released a Line of Rainbow Tracksuits to Benefit COVID-19 Relief
The coziest protest-from-home look.
Self-isolation is forcing Jane Fonda to put a pause on her Fire Drill Friday protests, but that doesn't mean she's staying quiet. In a new Instagram post, Fonda showed off a rainbow-trimmed tracksuit — a very cozy work-from-home look that plenty of us can relate to right now — and let her followers know that she's still working to stop climate change, only she's doing it with that tracksuit.
The rainbow detail featured Fonda in all-capital letters and the trim ran down the sides of each pant leg like a traditional athletic pair, while the hoodie featured the rainbow on the hood. In her caption, Fonda explained that 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the outfit (created with Crafted LA and retailing for $85) will go to benefit Fire Drill Friday. That's not the only charity, however. Proceeds will also go to and One Fair Wage, which works to ensure that all workers get a full minimum wage. If tracksuits aren't your thing, the Jane Fonda collection also includes T-shirts, which could be just the thing for a throwback workout.
"Each purchase will help the fight against climate change and provide assistance to our service industry and tipped workers affected by COVID-19," she captioned the shot.
Fonda debuted the look last week, but didn't offer the ensemble up for purchase until a few followers inquired about the outfit.
"Not to be a capitalist but......do you sell these????" one comment read.
Vogue notes that this is far from the first time that Fonda's made a political statement with her clothes. Last month, she wore a red Working America bandana around her mouth and urged leaders to get protective equipment to medical professionals, writing, "@CDCgov @kamalaharris @speakerpelosi this is NOT personal protective equipment. Bandanas and scarves provide almost NO effective protection when #COVID19 patients are highly contagious.#ProtectNurses and save lives: strengthen PPE guidelines for frontline health care workers NOW!"
