“Keep calm and carry on” was a morale-raising British slogan during World War II that’s now stamped on everything from posters to cushions to chocolate bars. But if there’s one thing we love more than kitsch, it’s pandas! An Etsy seller named Steppie has printed a sweet panda bear’s face on American Apparel Ts and tanktops for a playful twist on the traditional message. Keep calm and carry on? We’d much rather keep calm and panda on.
“I Facebooked your mom.” “Poke me.” “I don’t read books, I read Facebook status updates.” It’s bad enough that we collectively spend so much time “liking” and “poking” and status-updating on things; there’s really no reason to wear your Facebook addiction on your sleeve. [BitRebels] Keep reading »
Three things we love: T-shirts, sequins, and world peace. The combination of all three, for less than 20 bucks? Yes, please.
This digital printed T-shirt by MNG by Mango is phenomenal for three reasons: It features a laser-cut yoke and appliqué, which are sexy in a nude color; the print is pretty and dark at the same time, with ultra-realistic birds, snakes, and butterflies; it is reminiscent of the late Alexander McQueen. We can picture this Tee being worn with a black tuxedo blazer, leather shorts, a pair of crochet stockings, and chunky platforms for a night out. Or switch the bottoms for a pair of dark skinny jeans and gold ballets and you are set for the work day. All in all: a great statement piece to wear anytime!
We’ve never tried love potion, but we imagine the problem with it would be that a) it runs out, and b) it doesn’t actually work. What is completely charming us, however, is Wildfox’s “Love Potion No. 9″ T-shirt (which, unlike love potion, is reusable). With a soft texture and oversized fit, the graphics are the cherry on top with a spoof of Chanel’s iconic No. 5 perfume. Although it’s a bit pricey for a shirt, it’s the kind of thing we might just throw down for because there’s nothing better than finding a T-shirt that you can wear with your fancy duds and your ratty jeans.
For the 50th anniversary of Jean-Luc Godard’s “Breathless,” the Rodarte sisters collaborated with Parisian concept boutique Colette on a line of T-shirts inspired by the film. We were pumped when the news first broke, and now the goods have arrived. In the quartet of designs, one works the classic New York Herald Tribune logo Jean Seberg made famous. Others feature actual images from the film with colored graphic overlays.
The verdict: They’re definitely cool, but not as edgy as we thought they’d be (maybe a more vintage fabrication would have been cool). And naturally, they don’t come cheap, at about $150 each. Check out the rest of the tees after the jump. [Colette] Keep reading »
