>> I know that comments will ensue with questions of "Where can I get these???".  I'll start off by saying that basically, you CAN'T buy them for love or money.  These shirts were created by art direction team Sandberg & Timonen for a special exhibition at the Brachfeld Gallery in Paris presented by Dorothee Perret.  Entitled "Live Alive", the shirts pay homage to the men and women rocking our fashion world (with just a handful of exceptions who may have declined to have their faces 'rocked' out on a shirt…).  The shirts are also dedicated to the hardcore fashion lovers who "have packed away their scrapbooks of magazine cut outs filled with dreams of teenage escapism" and "can remember the first fashion show they dared sneak into".  Hands up.  It's ok to admit that you are one.

Sadly these shirts just aren't for sale.  Only eight of each one were made and I'm told that most are already gone gone gone.  All proceeds from those limited sales did fortunately go to the Medecins Sans Frontieres' efforts in Haiti though.  So alas, we can only rock out to the thought of wearing one of these without the actual wearing of one.  Queen Michelle, this one's for you.  (Is dedicating a post to someone as good as doing it with a song?)

The exhibition at the Brachfeld Gallery (28 rue des Archives, Paris) is on until the 28th Feb if you so wish to take a look at them in the flesh.

  9. Crystal says:

    Haha these are too funny. For a girl who loves her band t-shirts as much as her fashion mags, this is a nice little crossover.

  10. Maggie says:

    So disappointed these aren’t available for sale, my blog is a music/fashion one and my readers would love this stuff. 🙁

  11. amalie says:

    hah, they’re awesome!

  12. Zenobie says:

    These are so fun, another brilliant example that fashion doesn’t take its self as seriously as some people think.

  13. haha, I love the humor in these t-shirts, very cute 😉

  14. WendyB says:

    Love Viktor & Rolf especially. I once did the Van Halen logo in 18K gold for a rock dude!

  15. AMAZING! I’m sure there’s a catch, they’re bound to produce more of them or have them copied at some stage in the future…?

  16. lenka James says:

  22. kathryn nova williams says:

    ohhhh, i was the elbaz and the rodarte!!!!! how very clever!!

  23. Paulinabelle says:

    ohh my goodness i would die for some of these….

  24. Anna says:

    That’s to bad. =( Hey art team you will make a handful of dough if you sell these! I would love to be able to purchase one. Then I can walk around and everyone can know how much I support my fav. designers? Or wait maybe I can just purchase their line? Ahhh I get it.

  25. moi says:

    Way cool…but why am I drawn to the Christopher Kane one…? hah…I reckon it’s the Scotch connection.

  26. Gem Fatale says:

    Wow they are super cool. Why would they only make 8 of each? If it’s for charidee, they could’ve made more! I understand limited edition but when it comes to Haiti, they could’ve tried to make more money! Confusing.
    And btw, what is it with commenters spamming their url 3 times?! Once is enough, if not too much!

  27. M says:

    Martin Margiela and Sonia Rykiel for me pls!

  28. Isabel says:

  52. pashmina says:

    If they only produced 8 of each then I hope they jacked the price up or auctioned them off to raise as much money as possible.
