something i designed that is not a CDG ripoff or 3rd grade Knitting Club failure sweater

Sooooooo guys...remember this? From that one night about a month ago when I was being an insomniac and painting and took inspiro from the Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2008 collection?Yeah. Well now it's this.
Dude!!!
I teamed up with Karoline (who also did Karl's shirts) to make these and man she did a fantastic job!
  • Hand-printed
  • Eco-friendly and made from Certified Organic & Fair Wear cotton
  • Comes in sizes S/M/L
  • Made to order
  • $35 USD, a mini PayPal store will go up in the sidebar later today
  • World wide shipping
  • Unisex
I'm really excited for mine to come..It'll be weird wearing my signature on the back of my neck but kind of cool too. This beats all tye dye camp shirts I have ever made.
Hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day and are enjoying NYFW and the blogger events going on up there and Presidents Day!
xx

UPDATED TO ADD: It's up!

Oh my gosh, congrats!

I can just imagine that by the time you're my age you'll be livingin New York working as a designer/professional blogger/style maverick in the same vein as Issy Blow. Don't get drawn into the bad crowd, and if anybody offers you a funky-coloured pill just say no!

Remember it says it is handprinted, and Certified Organic Cotton, so that will be reflected in the price guys...

She said said...

Wow! Congrats, that t-shirt is so cute. If only I had some money to get one, at the moment I barely have enough to buy food. I also keep thinking about trying to make a tie dye t-shirt again, but I'm sure I would make more mess now than I ever did as a child.

Nice and Shiny said...

ummm,I WANT THISSS! I havent forgotten that painting since you posted it, acccce!

Unfortunatley with shipping it's 55 buck canadian... gunna have to hold off for a bit. No job+University=everythingiwearisfromsalvationarmy.

I hope they'll be available for a while so I have a chance later on :D

So awesome, congrats on the colab;D

Tavi you rock, that t-shirt is aaaaaawesome. I really really wanna buy it, but I live in Buenos aires (Argentina) maybe my granfather can buy one for me (he lives in california) but is gonna be kinda strange to see a 78 year old man buying a YSL t-shirt, hahahaha !

Y said...

Hey again, just a suggestion - why not have the shirt price and postage in GBP/£ as well (if it's being shipped from the UK then your fans in the UK can get it posted at a cheaper rate?) on PayPal? :D

geri said...

Rosé Ghislain Magritte said...
