SOUNDS OF LA
SOUNDS OF LA is the new Christophe Lemaire T-shirt collection produced in collaboration with LA based musicians. The concept of collaborating with musicians to develop a T-Shirt line is not new for Lemaire. A couple seasons ago he worked with bands like ESG, Suicide and the rap label Stones Throw. Everyone who’s aware of Lemaire’ personality knows he is a music lover and occasionally a dj. So it’s no surprising to see music finding its way into his work. As he likes to recall, “Music expresses a style, suggests attitudes and atmospheres that guide my work. I always think there is more style in the music scene than in fashion, a freer relation to clothes. It’s more natural, and more personal”. And so because Lemaire has a clear taste when comes to music, it’s to California that he went to search for inspiration this season, because as he says, “today some of the most interesting sounds are produced there”.
SOUNDS OF LA features the artwork of artists living in same neighborhoods and developing projects together, such as Human Ear Music, Ariel Pink, Holy Shit, Softboiled Eggies, Gary Wilson, James Pants and Jason Yates.
