I don’t know about you, but I am definitely in lust with this Bill Cunningham T-shirt. Sadly but unsurprisingly, it is sold out. I’m crossing my fingers (and everything else that can be crossed) that it will become available again soon.
I love Singaporean humour and it is not patriotism speaking. This T-shirt from local label Superwhite 超级白 is a case in point. For those of you who do not read Chinese, the characters may translate literally into ‘superwhite’ but is in fact a tongue-in-cheek pun on a particular Hokkien swear word. While it is certainly not appropriate for polite society, it is more or less commonly known among locals in Singapore.
A playful spoof of “a rather famous international label”, this limited local edition tee is made of 100% cotton. It is also available in black – when in doubt, buy both – and pre-orders will be open until this coming Wednesday (3 October). I have no idea if there will be any backorders for these, so I recommend that you get them while you can!
A cool project has been a-brewing on the interweb for a while now, but I have kept mum about it to see if the results can live up to the hype. In the case of OUTEREDIT, it certain looks like they did. Taking the concept of creative collaboration to a speedier new level, the global graphic design project is based on a simple idea – to get five geographically and culturally diverse designers to collaborate on multiple pieces simultaneously within a given period of time. An obvious advantage of working in this manner is that the final artworks are more than likely to be unique, exciting and unpredictable.
It gets better. The public gets to vote for their favourite designs and at the end of the challenge, the top-voted designs will be printed onto OUTEREDIT apparel and sold on its online store. The winners of the first ever O/E Collab is out and there are some very sweet t-shirts (SGD49 a pop) up for grabs. I heard that this limited edition collection is going quickly so it will be wise to get them before you miss them. [A new collaboration is underway right now, so you may want to keep your eyes on that. Or maybe even cast a vote or two.]
This weekend, I will be Hong Kong, hopefully stuffing myself silly and breaking the bank with shopping. But that is another story altogether. What I really wanted to say is that if you are going to be around this weekend, good for you, because cool-as-hell French street-chic label Zadig & Voltaire (even its name is seriously cool) will be having their Friends of Zadig & Voltaire Sale from 28-29 May 2011, 10 am to 10 pm.
Look out for the limited edition skull tee (pictured above) that was made immortal by Erin Watson and then never let it out of your sight, because there is only a single piece.
Zadig & Voltaire is located at Marina Bay Sands Shoppes, #B2-71/72.
Photographic tees and tank tops are not usually my cup of tea, but I have to make an exception for the D&G Johnny Depp Cry Baby Tank Top. As I like to tell all and sundry, Johnny is my ‘lover’. And I don’t care very much that I am being delusional.
Featuring a young, chiseled and smoking hot Depp as Wade Walker in 1990′s Cry Baby (a far, far cry from the beloved Captain Jack Sparrow), I think it is best worn with the girliest, fullest skirt you own to balance off the greaser vibe.
Or you can just go all the way and wear it under a badass leather biker jacket. Whichever rock your boat, I guess.
Then again, I can’t help thinking that for USD129, I can print myself a number of such tank tops and share them with my friends. Just saying.
Is it just me or are you seeing rabbits absolutely everywhere too? Then again, not that I am complaining – these cute, furry little mammals are easily the most endearing creatures in the Chinese Zodiac.
I wandered into Uniqlo a few days ago and found this adorable, bob-tailed rabbit print tee under the brand’s UT section of collaborative, limited edition t-shirts. With a flattering scoop-neck, comfortable loose cut and pretty sleeves detail, I knew immediately that this will be a favourite t-shirt that I will probably wear to death. I promptly purchased two (one in black and one in white) at just $24.90 each.
This t-shirt is part of the Franche Lippe x Uniqlo collection. Franche Lippe is a Japanese apparel label that specialises in animal and nature motifs. Some of its most popular patterns have been made into UT t-shirts and are now available at Uniqlo.
Although I hardly wear t-shirts these days, I have an irrational urge to buy this in bulk. I am that smitten by its cuteness.
