It continues: "Due to it's popularity we have released this new colour in pink for Caroline and to raise money for the Mind charity.
"Pink is a colour that symbolises love, compassion, playfulness and most importantly kindness.
"'In a world where you can be anything, be kind.' - Caroline Flack, 2019.”
This isn’t the first brand that has been working on tribute pieces to the late TV host as her good friend and reality star, Keith Lemon, also designed a ‘Be Kind’ t-shirt.
The line raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for Samaritans - a charity aimed at 'providing emotional support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide’.
Caroline was found dead at her home in London on February 15.
The ITV2 dating show dedicated their final episode, this series, to the 40-year-old, with Laura remembering her in a heartfelt speech.
