Recently, my colleague Jason posted on t-shirts from Raw Power that featured celebrities with painted faces and mug-shot style profiles. Now, Topman has picked up on the look and began creating copies for prices more attractive to shoppers. Don’t be mistaken- the tees are hardly cheap but what’s £20 between fashionistos?
My personal favourite is this Blondie-print t-shirt but other examples feature Marc Bolan in a Glam-rock red. With crew-neck collar and made from 100% cotton these t-shirts are a real find and can be worn as a backdrop for greater things or as the main highlight of an outfit. Colour injection or bad-day ease, this is an item that in true Topman-style remains wearable but stylish. What else could you ask for in a t-shirt?
