T-shirt meets haute-couture

July 18, 2011

Jil Sander é a marca de luxo que talvez melhor representa a estética minimalista, com sua elegância discreta, materiais sofisticados e alafaiataria refinada.

Diretor criativo desde 2005 e em seu terceiro desfile para a casa, Raf Simons apresentou camisetas de algodão em seu desfile de Primavera Verão 2011, e desde então a peça vem aparecendo em praticamente todas as lojas da high street, em versões que vão do algodão à seda, de uma cor só, listradas ou com estampas e slogans.

Da combinação das básicas com saias longas suntuosas, Simons reflete: “todas estão usando um vestido curto e sapato de salto super alto. Eu tenho muito mais interesse em ver uma mulher em uma camiseta de 10 euros e uma saia de alta-costura”.

A VV faz uma seleção de imagens de famosos que deram seu recado através de camisetas, além de relembrar algumas colaborações que devem inspirar você esse verão.

Jil Sander is the brand that maybe best represents the minimalist aesthetic with its understated elegance, high-end materials and refined tailoring.

In his third collection for the house, creative director Raf Simons brought basic cotton t-shirts to the Spring/Summer 2011 show, and since then the piece has appeared in practically every shop on the high street, in versions that go from cotton to silk, plain, striped or printed and with slogans.
.

Of the combination with floor-sweeping couture shaped skirts, the designer ponders: “Everyone is in a tiny cocktail dress and extreme shoes. I’d be much more interested in seeing a girl in a ten-euro T-shirt and a couture skirt”.

VV makes a selection of pictures from famous people that had their say through a t-shirt and remembers some collaborations to insipre you this summer.
