Tees: The Art of the T-Shirt

By shinychris on October 9th, 2009

What is it about T-Shirts that is so interesting? Just about every graphic designer or illustrator makes a T-Shirt at some point in their career and there are new designs appearing daily online and in shops.

Tees: The Art of the T-Shirt by Maki, a small design house in the Netherlands, celebrates some of the best T-Shirt designs out there from over 80 of the most creative designers in the world. It’s crammed full with some great designs to suit all different tastes and makes a great coffee table book. You can see some of the most interesting designs in our gallery below.

Tees, the Art of the T-Shirt is published by Laurence King Publishing for £19.95. A special limited edition including a T-Shirt featuring a unique collage of designs from artists in the book is available for £30.

Brandish Poll: The Met, the Models, the Mess! Keifer Sutherland and Jack McCullough Brawl?

By Will Reid on May 7th, 2009

brandishtees.jpgIn the aftermath of the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala, fashionistos/as across the world have been gorging over that turban, Madonna’s wackiness, Rihanna’s brilliant tux and Naomi’s beautiful boycott. However, it emerged today that off the red carpet a fight was on and statements are being made across the fashion universe in response to reports that Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCullough was headbutt by 24′s Keifer Sutherland after McCullough supposedly knocked Brooke Shields over.

Surely not, I hear you cry. But yes, McCullough’s rep has confirmed today that “anyone who knows Jack McCollough knows that he would not hurt a fly…all we can say at this point is that he was the victim of a vicious, violent, unprovoked assault and that the matter is in the hands of the authorities.” How delightful!

The question stands- are you Team McCullough or Team Sutherland?

Remember Graniph? If you don’t (and you’re too lazy to click the link) it was a t-shirt site which also hosted a competition to find new designers. The winners were split into one gold prize, ten silver prizes and nineteen bronze ones with Cho Jo Tzu taking the gold with her ‘Peace Love Rabbit Foot’ design.

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.

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

Ute Ploier

By admin on December 17th, 2007

Uteploiers1_2
Ute Ploier has been making
a name for herself in the menswear market. After starting her own label in 2003,
she was awarded the 2004 menswear award at the Hyères Festival. Her current collection ‘Time-loopers’ is said to
reflect on the modern mans armour – role play, social connotations and issues
of masculinity. I just like her Morrissey t-shirt.

Given the whole
Morrissey vs NME thing, it’s pretty risqué at the moment to even wear a Mozza
t-shirt. People might confuse me with an old ex-pat who spends his time lamenting
the lack of English accents in Knightsbridge. Morrissey’s version of England is
probably filled with monocle-wearing man with bowler hats shouting ‘Pip Pip’ at
each other whilst stopping off to play a game of croquet before getting back to
the old lady. The shirt is nice though.

You can find cool designs, funny images and great slogans, like this haiku t-shirt which is so meta it hurts. Bearing the inscription: Haikus are easy, but sometimes they don’t make sense. Refrigerator.

Sandbag ethical tees

By ShinyMedia on May 1st, 2007

SandbagteesSandbag, the pop-fashion
company who made T-shirts for Radiohead and Supergrass, has now added
the 100% organic mark to their garments in a new retail range. Lanched
in 2006, their retail clothes were already ethically manufactured using
certified fair trade cotton, but the organic step makes things even
better.

But enough eco-geeky details, consumers want to look ethically
fashionable, and here is a nice, albeit small, range of funky T-shirts.
With separate men’s and women’s collections they should do well, and I
hope they expand giving us even more choices to funk up our ethical
fashion. T-shirts from £15 from their online store.
