1993 SHIRT BACKSTORY

The 1993 Shirt is still probably one of my favourite pieces and i'd love to have it manufactured properly at some point. At the time of designing this shirt I was into all kinds of crazy prints being on shirts. Supreme have some really sick ones but it was like the 90's Moschino Gear that really caught my eye. I mean, these shirts were wild with colour and just crazy busy and i knew i wanted to do something like that but didn't know what kind of direction to take it.


It was an afternoon in early March and I was looking through this bookshelf in my house and came across this book called 'Chronicle Of 1993'. Basically it was a book that consisted of all the major news stories from the year, month by month. I flicked through and just instantly knew that this was the sort of shit I had to put on that shirt. I scanned all the crazy ones in and then printed them off in black & white and sort of arranged them over a shirt. (BOTTOM PICTURE) I kinda digged the monochrome images but knew that for this shirt to be crazy that i had to have them in colour. I resized a lot of them and then printed them onto the shirt.
