Scottish band Tango In the Attic have a new EP called Crushed Up, but it is those Crushed Up tees we're talking about today—the first offering from their Domicile Crocodile brand. The tees, designed by Fraser Stephen, Jane McFarlane and Jonathan McFarlane and made by Clara Bell take from the EP artwork pattern in two separate garments: an all-over printed tee and a T-shirt sporting the pattern on the pocket and sleeve lining.  

The limited-edition shirts will be available for order through the Domicile Crocodile Facebook and Bandcamp pages. 

 

The violence and destruction of property surrounding the 2011 London riots was devastating. Notably, a laundry list of independent record labels including Warp, Domino, Mute, 4AD, and XL lost valuable inventory when the 200,000 square-foot PIAS warehouse was burned to the ground. Countless retail shops endured days of looting and vandalism. During the mayhem, photographer Petra Valenti snapped the dramatic photo above of a few looters robbing a Carhartt store while a bright red sports car burns in the foreground. The designers at Carhartt, likely drawn to the gravity of the photo, have included the image on a new tee for its SS 2013 line. [via]

 

Recently, Nothing Major caught up with Dutch artist Parra (who sells his wares under the Rockwell Clothing brand name) while he was in NYC for his "Tracy Had a Hard Sunday" solo show at Jonathan Levine gallery. In this exclusive video interview with Parra for our Pro.files video series, he tells us about his love of the T-shirt format and why he likes drawing the female form.
