The humble tee has come a long way since James Dean sported a plain white t-shirt and a pair of indigo jeans. Black, white or grey marl, the classic crew neck t-shirt will always have a place in our wardrobes, a necessity when it comes to casual dressing. Over the past few years however, the rise of the ‘look at me’ t-shirt has gained much momentum. Even convincing some of us to part with a month’s rent for an iconic animal print Givenchy t-shirt.
Case in point Micky Mancuso, the subject of today’s post. His Givenchy Doberman t-shirt immediately grabbed my attention when he walked past me during the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. Pairing the t-shirt with slim black jeans and Lanvin sneakers allows us to focus all attention to the top. Sometimes all you need is a statement tee to inject some much-needed vigour into your everyday look. For options that cater to all price points, click on the link below.
