Psyche out!

By Colin Chapman on March 30th, 2009

psyche_80sp.jpgWe’re heading for a psychedelic summer. What with dancefloors from Dalston to Miami being moved by a mix of 60s psyche pop, Balearic grooves and extended disco freakouts it’s time for some colour. And they don’t come freakier than this T from 80s purple. Reminiscent of the cover of classic Acid House compilation Balearic Beats Vol 1, that big, trippy eye is one part Haight Ashbury and two parts Space, Ibiza.

Combine with white jeans and hi-tops for a proper late-80s look. For a more subtle take on psychedelic, try mixing a flash of bright colour – whether neckerchief or T-shirt print – with slim denims and leather ankle boots for a Mod-turning-hippy nuance. See you on the dancefloor!

Stock up on t-shirts for summer: 80′s Purple

By Colin Chapman on January 13th, 2009


America has always been the place to pick up cool T-shirts. Whether Hanes or (more recently) American Apparel, heavy duty 100% cotton T-s are an American staple. And there’s certainly no shortage of Stateside design talent when it comes to T-shirt graphics. Many of the best are available from 80′s Purple online. Costing approximately half the price they would here, it’s worth investing in a few at a time to make the postage worthwhile. Stock up now and be the envy of your friends this summer.
