Most favored by skateboarders and graffiti artists back in the day, graphic t-shirts have always been vehicles to communicate ideas. While renowned designers adopt the garment, its role has become more significant as a bridge between high fashion and streetwear, a conductor for the entire high-low movement. Tracing back to its street-oriented origins, we have curated a number of graphic t-shirts from streetwear labels including Paradise NYC, Onyx Collective, Noon Goons and Polar Skate Co.
From the latest Paradise NYC collection, the Harry Potter Obama T-Shirt takes reference from a graphic once well-know amongst the bootleg community. With typography of “Harry Potter” and “Obama”, the print also sees Sonic the Hedgehog in the middle above a “Paradise” logo from the brand. Another spotlight of the curation is the Iggy x Polar Skate Co. Boys On A Ramp T-shirt. In collaboration with Jack Greer from Iggy NYC, the Swedish skatewear label brings an oil paint of two skaters to the chest of a classic graphic white tee. Other highlighted pieces are the Onyx Collective Rumble T-Shirt and the Noon Goons Gummy Bear T-Shirt.
