I first heard about the Triple Major organized charitable endeavour Project White T-shirt from a Welcome Hunters email, so I’m sure some of you readers have as well. Thirty-one designers were asked to rethink the classic white tee and create their own version to be auctioned off to benefit Designers Against Aids. Worthy cause aside, the project has resulted in some really interesting interpretations (Aside: everyone remember Slow and Steady Wins the Race did their own reinvention of the classic this year?).
My personal favourite is previously featured ANNTIAN’s horse tee adapted for human. Love that sense of humour! And what do you all think? Think my big spotted girl would look styling in an ANNTIAN horse tee? Hee hee! You can see the horse tee adapted for the non-equine below.
There are video interviews with almost all of the designers, but not all of the designs have been released yet, so be sure to check back with the site over the next few weeks. I recognized quite a few of the participating designers like Bruno Pieters, A’N'D’, Complex Geometries, c. neeon, Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, Daniel Palillo, Pelican Avenue, and Kling by Kling
I was very happy to have randomly discovered this amazing New Zealand boutique, Children of Vision. Their philosophy, which is listed on their main page, is to be, “…fearless supporters of all that is avant garde, intellectual, and unusual”. While I recognized a few names like Bernhard Willhelm, A’N’D’, c. neeon, complexgeometries, Daniel palillo, Peter Jensen, Hansel from Basel, and Makin Jan Ma there were quite a few I haven’t heard of yet and I find that exciting. Of course seeing as that is the main focus of the blog! Any online or brick-and-mortar that supports quality independent designers is well deserving of promotion and support too!
They seem to rotate their stock pretty frequently, so it’s a site that merits frequent visits. They do ship internationally, although you will have to do the currency conversion yourself as everything is in New Zealand dollars.
Here’s another online shop to help slake your thirst for indie darlings like Henrik Vibskov, Kling by Kling, C. neeon, Bernhard Willhelm , KTZ – Kokon To Zai, and Daniel Palillo to name a few. Shop Fatal has quite a few things on sale at the moment and also carries menswear items.
