Norse Projects

Posted: 25 Feb 2011 06:52 AM PST

Carved from a solid block of ice in Copenhagen, Denmark, Norse Projects was conceived with a steely vision that the Vikings would have been proud of. Their street fashion invasion has slowly spread across the world as word spreads far and wide of their clean minimalist(ish) art tees, shirts, jerseys, jackets, trousers,  (I ain’t saying ‘pants’, I’m a Brit :p) and more. They bring a cool, calm, collected and intrinsically design-led acumen to the t-shirt market, or in Norse speak ‘the swarthy masses of the lowlands‘.

Plenty of great artists contributed to the latest collection including The Emperor of Antarctica, Belgian artist collective Pica Pica, Jens Funder Light and Danish artist Michael Rytz. The tees are rather pricey at 50 Euros (plus shipping) each, although each one is supplied with a limited edition print. They’re all available in sizes S-XL unless they’ve sold out a size and the tees are made in Europe too.

Circle Tee

Circle Tee

Looks like a Spirograph made from thread, lovely, and strange how cool it looks, even if it is something we all did in art class as a 5 year old. Very sweet actually. Pica Pica are great at producing cute designs like this one. S-XL.

Sculpture Tee

Another ‘crafty’ tee by Pica Pica, it looks like their sculpture’s fallen down, lol. Still, as far as tees go it’s a cutie, only L-XL left!

Funder Black Tee

Yep it’s white, howzat for arty? Lol. Jens Funder Light’s artwork looks a lot like a Joy Division album cover. Moody! M-XL.

I’ve been meaning to get around to reviewing UK label Dephect for ages, I have no excuses bar the fact they’re so well known I wasn’t sure what I could “add to the mix”, but seeing as I’ve already reviewed their mates over at Sutsu it seems only fair! If you haven’t come across Dephect before (where have you been?) then you’re in for a treat. As for all those more familiar with the label I’ve lined up a few of their delectable screen printed tees from their latest Spring / Summer 2011 Collection. So it’s all good ;)

Dephect was borne from the mutual love of skater culture, the 90′s hip hop scene, and the passion of four friends in London for underground art and design. All this and more was to collide in a symphony of creative energy that eventually developed into a signature urban Brit fashion label with fans across the world. The site is as slick as the tees, and this latest collection pulls out all the stops when it comes to street savvy style with a London bad ass attitude that takes no prisoners.

In addition to their classic graphic tees Dephect have released a selection of high-end progressive cut and sew pieces, heightening the quality and experimentation for this unique brand all the more. Original design is abound at their store, created by hand picked artistic talent from around the world, each with their own cool biography page. Men’s tees are RRP. £24.99 but with the sale on there are plenty up at just £14.99 and for the girls £22.99 RRP and just £9.99 for the sale items!
