French summer flannel with American flavor for Spring/Summer

When French homage label LES (ART)ISTS dropped their first line of artist-inspired tshirts, we were quick to grab a couple (Margiela, McQueen and Lagerfeld if you must know).

Want a “Get Lucky” T-shirt? [...]


We’ve covered some of Kidult‘s work here before, some of which we dig (like the  “Suepreme” tshirt), and some others that just seem like publicity stunts.

Helmet schematics, Moroder interview, photobook, music & more

Why you probably get death, but a helluva fun way to find it. The French made [...]
