Europe’s premiere luxury resale site, Vestiaire Collective, has been keeping a secret up its sleeve as holiday season approaches. The e-commerce site announced this morning that they have partnered with actress Jessica Alba to support Baby2Baby, the Los Angeles-based non-profit organization providing low-income children with diapers, clothing and all of the basic necessities every child deserves. The two have come together for a capsule collection of handpicked items straight from Alba’s closet. Alba is a board member of Baby2Baby.


This collaboration grew out of a desire to let women shop for pieces from a celebrity’s closet. Vestiaire Collective has long admired the work of Baby2Baby, so when the opportunity came along to partner with them for a philanthropic cause they jumped at it.


“Philanthropy and participating in worthy causes is an ongoing objective of Vestiaire Collective,” said Samina Virk, Vestiaire’s head of U.S. “Our most recent partnership was with the global charity, Wardrobes for Women, in which an amazing group of celebrities like Kiera Knightley, Emma Watson and Diane Kruger all sold pieces from their closet for charity.”


Until November 25, women around the world will be able to shop from Alba’s closet. Favorites from her shoppable closet include the particularly memorable custom laser-cut leather Tory Burch dress Alba wore to the 2013 Met Gala, and a black Prada number she donned in 2009 to a Vogue event at The Chateau Marmont, which she coins her “business-in-the-front, party–in-the-back” dress.


Price points for the pieces offered range from $125 to $995. 100 percent of all proceeds will go towards Baby2Baby. Shoppers can expect to find top designers like Narciso Rodriguez, Dolce & Gabbana, Nicholas Kirkwood, Prada, Robert Cavalli and Miu Miu.


Vesitaire is hoping to sell every piece and contribute to the $2.9 million that was already raised at the fifth annual Baby2Baby Gala last weekend.


“Baby2Baby is changing the lives of children each day, and we’re excited to contribute to such a great cause!” Virk said.
