Byronesque’s t-shirt ode to vintage fashion rebels in this week's Brand directory picks.
Ever since we first bumped into Byronesque and their curated movement against “fast fashion and outdated nostalgia” we’ve been hooked, and our latest obsession is their limited edition capsule collection of t-shirts in sartorial tribute to fashion’s rebels. A joint venture with STYLE.COM, the distressed tees are each mirroring the aesthetic of the designer it honours, including Vivienne Westwood, Yohji Yamamoto and the Antwerp Six. In vintage curator/Byronesque founder Gill Linton’s own words: “Everything from the date to the print, even the colour and wear and tear of each T-shirt has been hand selected to tell a story about the designers who have made an important contribution to fashion history.” The genius “Antwerp 6” is our favourite!
The brand directory picks are our favourite pieces from the labels featured in the Sustainable Brand Index.
