Geometric patterns and obscure designs are all the rage. There’s something about looking like a starving Brooklyn/SoHo artist while paying $90 for a t-shirt that appeals to people. I’m not ragging on designers, but rather cheaply-made fashion lines that exploit popular tastes to make a killing. Speaking of, Raubdruckerin.
German for “pirate printer”, this artist collective uses spray paint, stencils, and public fixtures to make very simple (and probably dirty) t-shirts by hand, selling them on their website for 19 euros. They’re certainly creative and labor-intensive, but the incredibly high demand for these things is kind of astounding.
