Twin Horizon is unique, inspiring, and striking creative collective house born from the minds of an independent group of designers and artists with members here in Shanghai.
Ivan Belcic (Shanghai) and Clem Balanoff (Buenos Aires) met in Trinity College in Hartford, CT, where their collaborations began. With their own line of hand-printed t-shirts coming, Twin Horizon has released their look book of their first line of shirts, featuring designs inspired by some charming local rock bands.
Some people accomplish stunning execution of engineering and creativity in the pursuit of an amazing Halloween T-shirt costume: cinema-grade fake armor, extra arms that actually move, that whole shower-curtain apparatus. Well, some just don’t need the hassle of some complex clothes but also don’t want people at the Halloween party making fun of them for not dressing in costume.
I have some reasons to call Carte Postale as a multi-cultural tee shirt label. First, the name Carte Postale is actually French for Postcard, while it’s actually run by duo Hakim Philip who is originally from Monaco (but lived 10 years in Japan before moving to Singapore) and Singaporean-based Artist / Designer Anwar Rafiee.
Secondly, with duo language website (English & French) and international pop-culture design like Sesame Street Thriller (awesome for Halloween!) and Mummy’s Dummy and another that touches the heart of third world countries like Re: Draw Afrika, it tries to conquer the make the mark in international scene. I believe that its Debut collection can give you some ideas of diversity in Carte Postale’s imagination.

When it came time to sit down and create another t-shirt blog round-up, there was no better theme for this week than Halloween. The rules were simple. Every t-shirt blog that that used Halloween in the title of their post or the theme was centered on Halloween, they made the round-up. Trick or treat folks!
Rangga’s note: Now tell me, what scary-go-funny tee did you wear during last Halloween week?
Halloween is just around the corner and everyone wants to take their part to make this planet a little bit creepier. It’s strange that indie clothing label Crywolf choose to turn its wolfie mascot into a zombie instead of a werewolf. Hmm… I was thinking that perhaps becoming a zombie is one of the least complicated undead experiences. And there are many ways when you choose the zombie path: like voodoo curse, viral transmission or inject yourself with the zombie virus.
Becoming a zombie may not be as glamorous as becoming a romantic-vampire or muscular-werewolf but at least we don’t hear many zombies complaining about their afterlife . If you notice, all they do is having fun chasing for their foods! With a ready supply of food all around you, your greatest worry will be avoiding those who choose to fight back!
Know we get some ideas why Crywolf choose a story of its mascot got bitten by a strange looking creature and has transformed into the living dead. Becoming a zombie is plain simple, even a “crying wolf” wants to be zombie! Too bad, this tee couldn’t turn you into a zombie, but who knows… wearing a comfy 100% combed cotton t-shirt with zombie mascot illustration hand-printed over it could make you the next zombies’ target?
This brand new T-shirt will be on sale (CAD $ 20 — discount price, usually CAD $ 28) until October 31st. Also available in girl’s size!
Drawing is a lovely activity. Everyone is doing it — from little kids, art students to experienced artists and professionals (like architects and engineers) — either when we need to get serious works done or doing something fun like sketches in the margins of their notebooks just to kill some times.
However,a clothing label like Draw Ltd. takes drawing-awesomeness to the next level. From its perspective, all drawings are art and thus all of them should get their moment in the sun. It’s certainly true that drawing, being less polished than most modern-digital art, can be incredibly remarkable (when artists’ magic hands involved!). Because they weren’t just meant for public’s viewing pleasure, they exhibit a freedom that other art can’t match.
Draw Ltd.’s monster-themed collection is proving that drawing can hold their own on a t-shirt. After introduced previous collection Monster Clusterf**k, Lenny and Carrotman (now out of stock) — its newest t-shirt (conceptualized and created) by Jordan Buckley shows us that even sketches can get a lot of mileage out with right dose of coloring.
But maybe… it’s because Mr. Buckley, who is also the guitarist for hardcore band Every Time I Die, is not one-time doodler. Buckley has done illustrations for multiple bands, clothing companies and individuals and we’ve been lucky enough to get a few from him. I’d love to call this t-shirt Jordan Buckley’s Pumpkin ’09 ($20) which look like a great tee to scare your friends this Halloween.

It’s that time again where we scour the t-shirt blogosphere for the articles that we think deserve a second look. Hopefully for some of you, it will be the first time you have seen them. For the ones you have seen before, take another look….there’s inspiration in these posts:
