UK brand AnyForty have cooked up something a little different for their latest artist series of T-shirts, teaming up with Melbourne based T-shirt journal T-World to produce 10 new tees, each featuring graphics from a different Australian artist.
It’s great to see the brand diversify from their regular ‘versus’ series a little, while still staying true to their artist-lead sensibilities. The new series features artworks from a lot of artists I’m not particularly familiar with, which only adds to the intrigue, but there are a couple of names I’m sure plenty will recognise. Meggs’ dark, twisted face was the first to stand out to me, as well as the return of Purdi Petunia, who offers a photo print design – another new move from the brand. This series also see’s AnyForty experiment with front-and-back-print style designs, which we haven’t seen a lot of from them before, like those from Ben Bigeni and Deb, which are probably my two favourites.
I get the feeling that AnyForty have shaken their own formula up a little here, maybe even stepping a little out of their comfort zone, and it’s paid off, creating one of their strongest and most diverse ranges yet. Props go out to the brand for hooking up the international connection and doing it justice. Check out some shots from the lookbook below, and head to AnyForty to make a purchase.
