Ford to unleash Mustang T-shirts
The Mustang Unleashed collection will be sold exclusively on Gilt and features 15 illustrations inspired by the car’s impressive heritage.
Ford Motor Company will celebrate the iconic FORD MUSTANG with the debut of Mustang Unleashed, a limited- edition line of one-of-a-kind shirts.
Fashion designers Anna Sui, Rogan, Paula Cademartori, CO|TE and Pamela Love each created three unique Mustang-inspired shirts, resulting in a collection of 15 designs, produced US ethical clothes maker Loomstate.
The 15-shirt limited-edition collection will be available starting in September exclusively at online shopping website Gilt.com for $39 each.
Of her designs for the collection, Anna Sui said: “Having grown up in Detroit I wanted to incorporate my memories of Mustang and celebrate the spirit of pop culture and Americana in my designs. As a designer, I am constantly inspired by everything around me and often include a nod to my roots — referring to nostalgic, romantic and rock influences — just like Ford Mustang.”
As such, Sui’s three pieces — Psychedelic Nouveau, Mustang Rock Poster and Airbrushed Mustang — focus on evolution while retaining identity, freedom and the space to dream, and the fantasy of rock ‘n’ roll.
Meanwhile Pamela Love, whose rise to prominence in the fashion world is thanks to her unique take on jewelry, has focused on the emblems and jewels that adorn, and are associated with, the Mustang, presenting them as cultural artifacts and using them to invoke images of folklore and iconography.
Each shirt will feature the same cut and fit. Women’s t-shirts will have a casual fit with a U/V shaped neck, fitted sleeves and ‘skewed’ sides, while men’s shirts will all conform to the classic crew-neck style.
Each t-shirt in the Mustang Unleashed collection is available to reserve now, exclusively via Gilt.com, but sales will not start until September 1.
