COVID-19 Response: Pyer Moss, Oscar de la Renta, Dundas, and More

By Eliza Jordan

March 27, 2020

In our latest update on how brands are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re sharing details from Pyer Moss, Oscar de la Renta, Dundas, and more.

Kerby Jean-Raymond’s brand Pyer Moss has converted its New York office (at 242 West 27th Street) into a donation center to accept N95 masks and latex gloves. Using recommended hygiene and social distancing practices, the brand will accept and re-distribute the items directly to medical professionals. Pyer Moss has also dedicated $5,000 to purchasing extra masks and gloves, and is recommending anyone in need of supplies to get in touch directly—via Instagram message or email at wanttohelp@yourfriendsin.nyc. To further help medical professionals directly, the brand has also created a donation platform for Columbia hospitals in New York. The unrestricted fund will allow the Department of Emergency Medicine to access it faster than it typically is allowed to be. Last but not least, the brand is donating $50,000 to small minority- and women-owned business that are in financial distress due to COVID-19. On Instagram, the brand stated, “If you cannot make payroll or cannot cover pressing costs to keep your business afloat, please reach out, let us know what you do and how we can help.” Any replies to the post are asked to be sent to wanttohelp@yourfriendsin.nyc.

Peter Dundas and Evangelo Bousis have committed their label, Dundas, to donating a portion of online sales to Citymeals on Wheels. 10 percent of all purchased made online will support elderly New Yorkers with meals and nourishment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Wednesday, March 18, Prada began the production of 80,000 medical overalls and 110,000 masks. By April 6, the large donation is set to be delivered to healthcare personnel in the Tuscany region. All articles crafted by Prada are being produced internally at the brand’s factory in Montone (Perugia), which has remained open for this purpose only. The efforts follows a recent donation announcement on behalf of the brand—contributing two intensive care and resuscitation units to three hospitals in Milan.

Misha Nonoo is donating 10 percent of all proceeds from its online sales to the Food Bank for New York City—ensuring those living in New York are able to get food during this difficult time. Additionally, to ensure those battling the virus from within the hospital are taken care of, the brand is offering $50 gift cards to healthcare workers.
