It's a double drop with two new limited edition Aaliyah t-shirts

Following on from the success of our TLC-inspired print, we've created a new limited edition Aaliyah design in two colourways - black on white and black on grey heather.

The subject

So why Aaliyah? We've been in thrall to her style, moves and music since childhood. She is a genuine streetwear icon synonymous with a unique sound and silhouette.

The video for her debut 1994 single Back and Forth saw her pioneer the look - oversized denim, tight tank, blacked-out eyewear and work boots. So, so dope.

The design

The style of illustration harks back to that same era when lines were bold and patterns were fresh.  

We chose to focus on that classic Aaliyah silhouette and use geometric shapes to depict the video setting. And look closely at that basketball hoop - the placement is no accident.

We're really proud of it and can't wait to see it on a lucky few customers.

The garment

The design is available on the finest garments we could get our hands on - 100% ethically produced premium ringspun cotton.

There are just 50 available - 35 in white and 15 in heather grey.

And they've both hand-printed by a trusted team of specialist south London screen printers.
