We might be busy savoring the first tastes of summer, but the guys of One Direction? Well, they’re already thinking about going back to school. Kind of. The Brit boy band has just announced a new partnership with Office Depot on a limited-edition capsule collection of back to school pieces hitting stores on July 5—just in time for the fall shopping season! While we can expect normal BTS staples like notebooks (branded with Niall, Zayn, Louis, Liam, and Harry’s faces, obviously), they’ve ALSO thrown in some not-so-normal items, like nail polish sets in five bright hues (throwback to Zayn’s Little Mix mani?!). Sure, news like this is enough to convince anyone—regardless of whether or not you’re actually hitting the books come fall—to make an Office Depot run, the best part is, it’s for a great cause.
A portion of the proceeds from the 1D/OD alliance will go toward an anti-bullying educational program intended to promote kinder behavior in schools. But in addition to funding the campaign through the profits, the guys themselves will be speaking out against bullying at their concerts, in ads, and on social media.
The whole project is just as awesome as it sounds, and you can get more details here!
