14/-丸胴天竺 Insonia project x marka Tee”Salvador Dalí Ⅰ”, White
Featuring ‘Insonnia’ that designs knitwear with a focus on ‘Made In Japan’ products, this item is made in collaboration with their ‘Insonnia Projects’ label - a popular label that further specializes in knitwear and cut-and-sew clothing.
With the motif of this work being based on the T-shirts sold at souvenir shops and American museums in the 1990s, the front of the T-shirt features a print created by ‘Insonnia Projects’ of a Dali painting. This print which has furthermore been officially certified by the Salvador Dali Foundation is made with a high-resolution rubber print so as to better represent the work of the genius Dali.
For the body, the T-shirt uses a Marka original garment. Designed from a thick fabric, this piece also features reinforced neck, cuffs, and hems finished with double-folded seam binders so as to highlight details seen in American T-shirts of the 90s.
As for its silhouette, the T-shirt features a roomy shoulder and body width, and has sleeves reaching elbow length. With this large silhouette, the garment ensures comfortable wear while also fitting the mood of today’s fashion.
An artist T-shirt in the likes of those rapidly rising from the vintage clothing market. With this time’s collaboration with ‘Insonnia Projects’, one is left amazed by how much exuberance can be brought out with such a design.
With a motif based on souvenir tees sold in souvenir shops and art museums combined with a design that reproduces the T-shirts of 90s American body makers and a printed work of the genius Salvador Dali, this shirt is designed to have a rugged yet somehow academic and intellectual mood.
Certainly, this T-shirt has a strong presence to match any vintage piece and - given that it's rare to find a vintage T-shirt that fits your size - the fact that one doesn’t have to worry about size or fit is a definite plus. Why not try to fit this sure-to-be favorite summer piece into your wardrobe?
‘The Persistence of Memory’
Painted by Dali in 1931, this is one of his most famous works.
Featuring three clocks which seem to have melted, the times present on their faces have become disjointed. A famous work that expresses a ‘timelessness’ in which the memories of both the present and the past are mixed, this work is a defining piece for expressing Dali’s theorizations and participation in the Surrealist movement.
Made with a 100% cotton tenjiku fabric specifically created to replicate the hardiness and roughness (in a good sense) of fabrics made by American body makers in the 1990s. Daring to use a carded yarn for its crisp texture, while the heavyweight T-shirts of the 90s generally used 16-count yarn, this piece uses a 14-count yarn so as to achieve a fluffy thickness that finishes into a durable fabric.
