With summer here, there’s only one top to wear, and that’s the T-shirt. There are so many cool graphics being used, it’s almost impossible to choose from the vast eclectic mix of art and design. Here are a few of my favourite brands and their 2012 offerings.
1.Dolce & Gabbana Penthouse T Shirt
This T-shirt is really graphic, using Penthouse magazine front covers with photographic images of females wearing swimwear – very sexy! It features a ribbed crew neck and short sleeves with intentional unfinished seams to the neck line, waistline and cuffs of the short sleeves. Not cheap at £155, but you’ll certainly stand out this summer wearing it around town.
2.Maharishi Floral Skull T Shirt
His cool T-shirt is slim in fit with a crew neck design and a ribbed neckline and short sleeves. A wicked, embroidered skull and flowers motif is inspired by the Spanish Holiday: Day Of The Dead. There’s also a reflective fabric pinch tag sewn into the left side seam. 100% Organic Cotton. Find this really graphic T for around £85.
3.Vivienne Westwood and Lee Jeans Stud Tee T Shirt
Part of the continued Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee Jeans collaboration, this slim fit, crew neck design T-shirt is stunning. It features large studded Vivenne Westwood logo on the chest in silver with the Lee Anglomania woven logo tag sewn into the side seam, plus embroidered skull and cross bones motif on the left sleeve in silver. Only tailored in Britain and made from 100% cotton. Expect to pay around £70.
4.All Saints – Horns Cut Collar T-shirt
This T-shirt from All Saints features “The Horns” with satanic star in cat’s cradle. It is made with a lightweight 100% cotton loose knit single jersey, hand illustrated and printed using discharge inks. Washed for that cool vintage effect. All Saints T-shirts sell for £40.
5.Delta Tribe – Power T Shirt
Delta Tribe is a London based clothing label aiming at the young fashion consumer. Delta Tribe represents an eclectic taste, screams out for a modern, alternative youth, whilst flying the flag for urban culture. This sexy T-shirt features the stars and stripes flag with gorgeous pin up girl crouching seductively. These wicked Ts can be found for £25.
So summer is here and holidays are being booked as I write this. Make sure you pack some cool T-shirts into your suitcase. If you like what you see, look online and discover the wicked T-shirts available.
