It is cosy to wear loose T-shirts with mid sleeves in summer. Figure prints and linear patterns are most popular. Rick Owens Drkshdw’s linear pattern in black on the white ground is pared-back. The collaboration collection of KKtPxAND1 shows the street style.
Function gains traction. There are a range of T-shirt styles. Single or two 3d pockets, as seen at VXVM and HYPOCRITE, are dominant.
Photo prints work best for summer. There are a variety of photo prints such as landscapes, figures and illustrations. For S/S 2020, photo prints are mostly applied to the back.
Piecing is often used to renew T-shirts. Heliot Emil’s asymmetrical hemlines and VXVM’s piecing of the photo print and solid fabric are offbeat.
Tie dye in S/S 2019 also gains traction. In this season, tie-dye is often combined with patterns. It is interesting to see letters and funny patterns on the chest and back.
