Designers have taken strides to fight breast cancer, and pollution, but AllSaints Spitalfields, the hip, retro British label, is taking on another global scourge -- human trafficking. Some 17,500 people are trafficked into the United States each year, according to a State Department estimate. To raise awareness, AllSaints offers a new T-shirt line ($45 and up), with proceeds benefiting Not For Sale, a nonprofit fighting the global slave trade; at AllSaints, Manhattan, and allsaints.com.

The comfort factor

Two Los Angeles premium denim brands are taking the comfy factor and applying it to high-end design. Joe's Jeans has just come out with Jean Sweats, pants made with a fabric that feels like French terry but that can be processed and treated like denim, allowing for maximum stretch. And Hudson Jeans plans to release a collection that will be exclusive to Equinox gyms, using a knit fabric that looks like denim but feels plush.
