Launching tomorrow night – TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture

Just as yesterday was the 12-12-12, TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture is the sort of event that only comes around once in a life time… or… maybe twice but only if you’re lucky! Tomorrow night will see the T-shirt world’s answer to David Attenborough – Melbourne’s own Eddie Zammit – joining forces with Just Another Agency, the NGV and his own T-world to present TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture. This amazing exhibition will not only examine and dissect the last 25 years of the city’s T-loving graphics, but it will show off some of the most amazing wearable cotton treats as seen through the eyes of an obsessive T-shirt collector. With Eddie digging into his own 4,500+ strong TEE collection, this show will exhibit the true power of Melbourne’s T-shirt past, present and future.

TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture will be on display at NGV Studio (Federation Square) from 7 December 2012 to 17 February 2013. Opening night is 14 December 2012 – see you there!

Super soft bubblegummers

No, not the 80s jeans silly, we’re talking about these sweet heels from Melissa shoes, which you can find in the latest edition of Plastic mag, Melissa’s very own magazine dedicated to their amazing shoes creations. Made from specialised PVC, every pair of Melissa shoes is infused with a super yummy bubblegum scent so your feet will always smell scrumptious. Their heels are also super comfy, which any lady will tell you is important for those long glamorous nights out. However if you’re a mister, then you can simply swoon out over the pictures of Kate Moss and Katy Perry, nuff said.

They call me Bond

A friend of mine was blessed with a mighty fine present recently, when another friend returned from Thailand. This came in the form of a present, of which I am extremely jealous. It has to be one of the best James Bond T-shirts I have ever seen – it has everything! Cornball 60s imagery of the Sean Connery James Bond strapped into a rocket pack, or scuba diving, and then surrounded by bikini clad curvaceous ladies represented on three panels – each with its own title – Look Up, Look Down – Look Out! which appears in shiny red foil. Simply too good!
