DRTE give us something a little different for Summer – a new range of T-shirts and a twist of the norm accessories wise, with a new collection themed around the troubles in modern society, with each design reflecting a different issue, whether that be the policing or the human consciousness itself.
With a focus on premium quality, DRTE present three white T-shirts, each featuring large front screen-prints and branded woven labels. The three designs, named ‘World Is Ours’, ‘Sick Society’ and ‘Law Lost’ are inspired by the work of Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti, who spoke about the need for radical change in the thoughts and actions of individuals, as the only way to reform a damaged society. The collection is completed by two cotton bucket hats, each with 1/4 inch brass ventilation eyelets, and woven labels both on the front and inside, coming in ‘washed navy’ and ‘desert khaki’.
The three tees are great, and definitely a breath of fresh air – the above design being my personal highlight. As for the bucket hats, it’s not something I’d usually wear, but again, it’s refreshing to see something a little different in a sea of repetition. I cant help but feel that the collection’s message of change and inspiring individuals to think for themselves has more direct relevance to the market, and isn’t just important on a spiritual level. The collection is available now from DRTE, more images follow below. As always, let us know what you think in the comments.
