Making a Statement: Camden Market’s Coolest Tees
Tue 28 Mar
T-SHIRTS THAT ARE GRAPHIC BUT IN A TOTALLY SFW WAY…
If you frequented Camden Market in the 90s, chances are you bought a slogan tee or two here. And now our coolest T-shirt designers are reviving the piece the Market’s is most famous for. Whether it’s a rare vintage band shirt from the 80s or original, handmade designs from some of our independent designers — here’s our pick of the crop (top).
The Cult One — Yo Coco
After something a little edgy? Yo Coco (who have been trading in the Market since 2009) use bold, pop-culturally based or geometric designs, individually hand-printed onto their trippy, tie-dyed tees, vests and tote bags. Featuring everything from gothic versions of Disney princesses to Edward Scissorhands, these are not t-shirts for the faint of heart.
The Retro Band One — The Vintage Collection
If you’re feeling grungy (in the music sub-genre sense, not the unclean one) you may want to head to The Vintage Collection, who’s *ahem* vintage collection is the biggest in Britain, and their haul of original band shirts is no disappointment. From Bowie to Bruce Springsteen to The Beatles, they’ve got the lot.
The Psychedelic One — AUTBOX
Already psyched for festival season? AUTBOX is a haven for all things holographic. From unicorns to shells to cats to moons, if you can recreate it in metallic foil, you’ll find it on one of AUTBOX’s tees. They’re also bang on trend with their pastel grunge vibes, so you can rock the soft pink shades and black fishnet as the belle of the, err, tent.
The Bright One — JEKKAH
Think bold and bright (and then some): JEKKAH’s loud, geometric prints and fabrics are all sourced from Gambia and crafted by a selection highly-skilled tailors into shirts, tees and everything in between. Born on the festival circuit, a visit to their Camden Market shop is all you need to inject a little colour into your life for more than just the festival season.
