The Find: t-shirts inspired by Broken Social Scene, Feist and other Canadian musicians
Just in time for the music festival season, designer Jeremy Laing has teamed up with Toronto record label Arts and Crafts and a handful of visual artists to produce a collection of t-shirts inspired by Canadian acts like Feist, Broken Social Scene and Dan Mangan. For our favourite of the bunch, Niall McClelland—who previously produced dreamy prints for Laing’s spring 2012 collection—created a moody graphic reminiscent of Timber Timbre’s haunting vocals. Meanwhile, Feist handpicked artist Sojourner Truth Parsons to riff off her music, and the resulting shirt, covered in otherworldly-looking figures, has all the cool cred of a well-worn concert tee. The tees go on sale today, with all the profits going to MusiCounts, a charity that supports musical education in schools across the country. $75.
