Lady Gaga and Karl Lagerfeld have teamed up to create charity t-shirts for Japan.

The eccentric pop star and the Chanel designer are among a host of celebrities who have collaborated with Uniqlo and Conde Nast Japan to design 10 t-shirts with profits going to the Japanese Red Cross, which is working to alleviate the impact of the earthquake and tsunami on the country in March.

Other stars who have gotten involved include Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman, Alber Elbaz, Cyndi Lauper and Victoria Beckham.

Blake Lively – who was recently named the face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag range – and Uniqlo brand representatives Charlize Theron and Orlando Bloom have also designed t-shirts for the initiative.

The creations will go on sale on June 25th with Uniqlo expecting to donate profits of $1.2 million to the fund.

This is not the first time Uniqlo has donated to the Japan cause, Tadashi Yanai, chairman and chief executive officer of Uniqlo’s parent company Fast Retailing Co. Ltd., has personally donated $12 million, with the retailer also sendingĀ  $8.5 million in clothes and $3.6 million in funds immediately after the disaster.
