The tees’ graphics are related to the merger of the abuse of Internet pop culture and to the overlapping of images, mixed with the search for spirituality and the Asian psychedelic colors.
The collection is the result of my personal and cultural background: from the NURAVE to the Swag, cyberwave, the New Yorker “Clubkids” movement of the early ‘90s, from the web culture to the symbolic aspects of pop culture, from the KFC and the junk food to the Asian world. The project starts with the collection 10 t-shirts, but the winter collection – made of leather jackets, oversize jumpers and all over printed suits in TEIN style – is already under construction.
Using graphics as icons and icons as graphics, it is possible to create an affordable and a straightforward clothing. The End Is Near – TEIN – aims to be sarcastic and irreverent both in its name and style: it deals with the evolution, reflected not only in what we are but also in what we wear. TEIN RULES!!!!
