Harlem-based design house Maak Eebuh is launching their debut line of T-shirts "The War Series," aiming to provoke comment and build dialogue about the war in the Middle East. After working in costume design and high-end fashion at Yigal Azrouel, designer Jade Schulz started the line of limited edition tees earlier this year as "a brand whose artwork filters important issues of the moment in a different light." One of her designs, printed with the words "Welcome to the Empyre," uses old-world graphics to play on the concept of an American empire. (Pictured left, click for detail.)
Available in various pigment-dyed colors the 100% cotton shirts are made in California, with a comfy and stylish low-cut neckline and are finished with an enzyme wash to make them extra-soft. Maak Eebuh T-Shirts retail at $59 with 10% of the proceeds going to online. Schulz is currently working on her second collection "The Travel Series" which will be available in Spring of 2007.
