About This Collection

T-shirts often reflect the thoughts, and trends of our times. Long before social media, T-shirts were a canvas on which people everywhere could freely express their messages. We returned to the origin of the graphic T-shirt and collaborated with three contemporary artists who lead the art scene in the U.S. and London. We also updated the silhouette to our new relaxed fit and retro inspired fabrication.
