"A T-shirt is a style of soft shirt, named after the T shape of the body and sleeves. It is normally associated with short sleeves, a round neck line known as a "crew neck", and no collar."
In 1913 the first form that the T-shirt took was called a union suit in New York. It was one piece garment in white color. In 1951 this product arrived in Hollywood in a sexy way with Marlon Brandon and all the teens wanted one. Later in the middle of the 50´s the T-shirt was an icon of rebellion, "Rebel Without a Cause."
In the 60`s the T-shirt started to go in the same way of the culture and music. Rock, Phycodelia, Punk and they became in art works since in last 70`s when turned into a essential in any wardrobe and not only in men´s.
Now the T-shirt is a media channel to express and confess what you feeling or what you think about life, politics and culture: Message T-shirts.
You can find many designs with different stories. No matter the tribu you belong to. Maybe you don´t really realize that everybody has a T-shirt but the message on them is very different. Top designers and celebrities show us it.
Don´t you have a T-shirt saying I love New York? If not you are not in.
Here you can find some designs Made In Spain with a clear message and they are real art-works. Costalamel´s T-shirts has a strong feeling ‘make la honey’ manifesto. Honey is an attitude towards life. It is being yourself and fighting for your dreams. It is positivism, zest for life. It is an ode to all those singular people who keep fighting to assert their values and ideals. That’s why we make associations with young designers and local workshops, with brave people who have the deep desire to change things.
Guiëm says “I think the menswear still has a long journey to get rid of stereotypes and conventions; that’s exactly where we want to get, to that liberation” and you can see this in his designs.
