Green Fairies on Your T-shirt

tee shirt LaFraise Green Fairies

“La fée verte”, or the green fairy, is nickname given to absinthe, an anise-flavoured spirit derived from botanicals, including the flowers and leaves of Artemisia absinthium (grand wormwood), together with green anise, sweet fennel, and other medicinal and culinary herbs, in french.

But Green Fairy isn’t just another name for absinthe, she is a metaphor for the presentation of complex ideas in poetic form of new ideas, of a changing social order. A powerful symbol of the avant-garde elite that gathered in Parisian cafes at the turn of the last two centuries.

That, maybe, what inspired Eown a.k.a Laurent Batel, flash, web design and freelance illustrator, in portraiting Green Fairy T-shirt as screen printed by LaFraise.
