WISHLIST: Henry Holland ‘Lives not Knives’ T-shirt

By Will Reid on July 28th, 2008

livesnotknives.jpgKnife crime has reached an unbelievable height in Britain and with the murder of Ben Kinsella, the seventeenth teenager to die as a result of knife crime in London this year, Grazia has launched their ‘Lives for Knives’ campaign. As part of the campaign, the magazine has got Henry Holland, Katharine Hamnett and Sophia Kokosalaki on board to design t-shirts as well as laying a set of Five Government Demands.

On my WISHLIST is Henry Holland’s design, an electric-blue t-shirt with striking design and bold lettering. One size fits all and all proceeds go to the Ben Kinsella Foundation, a charity set up for the prevention of future knife-crime. I couldn’t think of a more worthy summer buy.

T-shirt, Exclusively at Matches, £36

A Bit of Fun: 80sTees.com

By Will Reid on July 10th, 2008

80stees.jpgAs part of Google Mail, you are constantly bombarded with adverts for whatever your e-mails are about. For me, that is largely fashion and therefore, I receive links to sites such as 80sTees.com. This online store proved to be pretty good; I wasted about half and hour going through the memorabilia.

See after the jump for my top picks-including a Karate Kid t-shirt, awesome NEW YORK MTV t-shirt and an incredible Freddy Krueger jumper (who cares if it’s not entirely wearable-it’s a “deluxe replica”!)

The Hype Machine T-shirts

By admin on July 10th, 2008

hype_machine_t-shirts.gifAre music website t-shirts the new band t-shirts? Well, let’s hope not – but I have to admit I’ve already shelled out for one of the t-shirts being flogged by uber music aggregator The Hype Machine.

For the uninitiated, this is the site that has revolutionised the way I – and a hell of a lot of other people – have discovered and listened to music over the last year or two.

The shirts are going for a very reasonable $20 (plus delivery charges), and are available from The Hype Machine’s merchandise page.

Everyday Fashion Miracles: Vintage Variety

By Will Reid on May 12th, 2008

I happened through a series of make-believe fashion-related and totally cool occurrences to be watching Britain’s Got Talent the other night and as a result I was witness to the horror of Hoop La La. No, this is not some Christian cult or Paganistic ritual it is the work of Jessie, Craig and Tina; a group of students hoping to make it big with their hula-hoop act.

After watching I was inspired to right a piece on vintage clothing and while unexpectedly drawn from the image of a Scot in hot-pants, there is greater reasoning after the jump.

WISHLIST: Uniqlo UT by Nicola Formichetti

By Will Reid on April 29th, 2008

uniqlonicola.jpgA few weeks ago I spotted something on Nicola Formichetti’s blog but thought it was too vague (being only a set of pictures) and decided not to post. Well now I wish I had because as part of the new Uniqlo UT T-Shirt Collection, campaign stylist Nicola Formichetti has actually designed a few pieces. My favourite is the one above, printed with a copy of Luke Worrall from the Dazed & Confused ‘Black and White’ cover of August 2007. Sharp, edgy and extremely wearable in it’s monochrome entirety, this tee would be a great buy.

“Design me a t-shirt at Threadless.com” demands a swearing-festooned Moby

By admin on April 25th, 2008

BE

LIEVABLE.

So this year we’ve had pop stars asking you to write them songs. We’ve had them asking you to name their “product”. Any other odd-jobs the pop firmament needs a hand with?

Yes. How about MAKING THEIR BLOODY CLOTHES? OK, not making exactly. Nobody’s asking you to sit there stitching together some home-made underwear for the Pussycat Dolls (I know, shame – you can have a go and send it to them anyway, that’s what I do).

Blood, Sweat and T-shirts review

By admin on April 23rd, 2008

blood sweat and tshirts.jpg The premise of ‘Blood, Sweat and T-shirts‘ is simple; get six fashion fanatics – who all seem to be doing their hardest to be unlikeable – send them off to a sweatshop and see how they cope. Do they crumble or do they start sewing 1000 garments a minute with one hand tied behind their back?

Julie Verhoeven Tees for Mulberry

By Will Reid on April 13th, 2008

mulberrytee2.JPGJulie Verhoeven, the artist and fashion-collaboration extraordinaire has designed a set of t-shirts with her illustrations of animals and other strange creatures. Vogue UK reports that Verhoeven’s fun and frivolous tees are in-store now for both guys and girls at £50 each. Verhoeven relays that “the artwork for the T-shirts came about by wanting a little bit of loopyness for springtime and letting loose the Mulberry menagerie of daft animals.” I couldn’t agree more- as seen in previous posts, I am also feeling the pressure of season transition and these are a designer-label colour boost. Wear them with jeans for day or with thin cardigans in berry tones and the Uniqlo chinos for a low-key evening look. Verhoeven’s previous collection for Mulberry, a collection of quilted bags covered with her illustrations, were a disappointment for many but these look fresh and colourful enough to top many a Spring wishlist.
In stores now, £50 each, Pig, Bunny and Cat (left) motifs

WISHLIST: River Island Tokyo Tees

By Will Reid on April 11th, 2008

tokyo.JPGLeft to Right; World Tour t-shirt £16.99, Seventh Seal Sun t-shirt £15, Seventh Seal Japan Create £15

Inspired by Isabelle’s talk of thunderstorms and rainclouds at Shiny Towers, I decided to source some foreign-focused fashion for those rainy-day dreams of tropical (and of course warm) destinations.

These t-shirts are (just in case you didn’t notice) based on posters and leaflets around Tokyo. Fashioned from 100% cotton, these could be based on pages from manga comics or, in the case of my fave, vintage propaganda banners shouting “Japan Create!” In bright colours and bold graphics, abandon any sense of gloom and widen your outlook with images of cartoons and lasers.

River Island isn’t exactly famed for being on-trend and it doesn’t pretend to be high fashion but let’s take a lesson from DJ Karl and embrace new things- be it high street or Grand Theft Auto 4.

Dramatic Celebrity T-Shirts from Topman

By Will Reid on March 25th, 2008

71z39rblk_normal 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?

T-shirt, Topman, £20

D.I.E Sale Alert!

By admin on March 6th, 2008

Die1_2
Just as D.I.E’s spring range seeps into
shops, the official Denim is
Everything site
has extended their sale by a week, So you can spend all
payday money on important stuff, like t-shirts. The site’s sale archive is extensive,
with shirts dating back to the Autumn/Winter 2005 collection.

The shirts are also available in a colour
range that nearly rivals American Apparel, meaning you can finally get that ‘too young to d.i.e’ shirt in pink and purple, instead of boring old white and black. The
sale lasts until the end of this week and supersonic delivery (I assume that
means next day) costs £6.50 regardless of how many items you’re buying.

Passarella Death Squad Tee-Shirts – Stop this filth!

By admin on February 6th, 2008

Pasarella

Passarella Death Squad are mucky pups, they are. They’ve taken some of the most iconic T-shirt prints and converted them into peepholes, peering into a saucy pornographic world. Dirty rotters. Never has Mickey Mouse been so abused (Donald probably has though).

They’ve also given the designs poncy French names which is kind of obnoxious, but also in keeping. Despite offending my sensibilities, I still quite like them. Left to right we have ‘Le tueur s’eveille’ (the killer wakes); ‘Tous sont demants’ (everyone is a madman); and ‘C’est la fin’ (it’s the end). Available from Oki-ni and Yoke.

Graniph T-shirts

By admin on January 30th, 2008

Graniph_tee
Given the collaborations are all the rage
amongst contrasting brands (i.e Comme Des Garcons vs Fred Perry), it’s still
rare to see untested designers being given a chance in t-shirt design. Graniph look to change that, giving anyone
who’s ever wanted to design a t-shirt the chance to do so.

The upside of this is that the resulting
t-shirts are bold and different, such as this Red Check
2 tee
. The downside is that the shirts have names like ‘Red Check 2′. It’s
a small price I’m willing to pay for originality.
