Tee shirts tend to be rather mundane; one would not easily use terms like ‘unbelievable’, ‘amazing’ for them, whereas one would for jackets, shoes, dresses…
However the second my eyes set on the D2 Cocktails t-shirt (ss16)…i was in love!
How come? It’s only a black tee with a gold print after all. Well, yes, but this is actually the improvement of a concept that started a couple of seasons ago.
Its first ancestor was the ‘Canada’s Twins’ maple leaf, ‘hetero fit‘ t-shirt, available in black or white In. My opinion the print was overwhelming and the cut was not particularly interesting.
The cut is Chic Dan fit. Warning: it is very slim, the collar and armholes are really narrow, so you might have to opt for one size abive your regular size.
The fonts are just right in my opinion, in terms of size and layout. And for some reason the very word ‘cocktail’, like ‘champagne’ before, hits you on a subconsicous level, the type of drink being evocative of class, parties, good times…
So get yourself a Cocktail tee, and let’s share a vodka martini, my favourite mix; with a twist please.
