COME TESS :
November 29th, 2018
Thursday 7PM - 12AM
321 Canal Street, New York City
Artist Justin Cole Smith created a set and shot a series of portraits in my studio of some of my friends and collaborators including Asma Maroof, Cali Dewitt, Brendan Fowler, Tremaine Emory, etc.
The new Come Tees denim capsule, "SPIRIT," is influenced by my love of early graffiti, especially early 70's NY taggers. The tagger's impulse to state one's name, to express, to customize--it is a special need of the human spirit. With Come Tees I'm always trying to balance the haptic, the hand-drawn with the "wall"--the t-shirt body and now bringing that spirit to American workwear silhouettes.
