To a T
Celebrating the humblest of fashion statements, Atlanta's Design Museum will launch an exhibit devoted to t-shirts next Thursday, 19 October 2006. Including several lines you may have previously seen in these pages (co-curator Laura Moody says she often sourced designers from Cool Hunting), the show features the latest in t-shirt design with an emphasis on southern regional designers, like Esperanza, former Sam Mitchell (pictured center), Pecan Pie Couture, Black Black Label and Epidemik Coalition. Also bringing together high-end designers who've embraced the democratic medium, like Marc Jacobs, with innovators such as Project Alabama (known for their quilt-like reconstructed tees) and the hand-written tees of Snerko, as well as others from San Diego-based Rxmance (pictured left, click for detail) to San Franciscans Turk + Taylor and Australian designer Jonathan Nichols, "To a T" offers a diverse mix of t-shirts the world over.
