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
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.
I must be secretly longing for some hipstery prints lately because I feel like I’ve been featuring a lot of designers who double as graphic designers or artists. They all seem to like to produce clothing that’s obviously strongly tied to their art backgrounds./training.
Karolina Kling of Kling by Kling is no exception. Her illustrations are the center of her collections, and her bio on the site states that she prefers to be seen as a graphic and product designer rather than a fashion designer.
I do like that she doesn’t just plaster her illustrations on boring shapes like plain tee-shirts or tight pants. Every collection nicely merges creatively cut clothing with her predominantly black and white illustrations, which could be easily worked into an existing wardrobe.
I’ve posted a picture from her four collections. She does some menswear as well.
