A few weeks ago I posted a look featuring d’or et d’argent’s Shanghai Skyline t-shirt, one I was gifted from the founders of the brand after we met up for a very special project. I hadn’t yet announced what this project was, but after showing you some little sneak-peeks on instagram, I can now tell you what another one of the slightly bigger collaborations is.
I came to discover d’or et d’argent on social media only a couple of months ago, but not long after did we begin to engage in numerous collaborations together. I’ve had the chance to meet up with the founders of this incredible new brand in London. Here is where I get to reveal to you a project which consisted of a photoshoot with one of the founders, Qing herself, wearing three d’or et d’argent first collection t-shirts.
My chosen favorites, Sea Fuji, Bones of Buildings and Poker Queen, all with a unisex fit, each show a powerful relationship between city life and the rapid international world we live in. The first graphic created, Sea Fuji, was based on the quote ‘The world is your oyster’, revolving around the theme of merging world landscapes into one. Bones of Buildings illustrates the architectural background behind the core of cities, showing their striking geometric anatomy. Lastly, Poker Queen is mostly about the connection between people and animals, where the number 8 printed on the t-shirt signifies luck in Chinese numerology. Although every t-shirt has a different yet equally interesting graphic, the common theme of power and international state of minds is always present.
I hope you like these photos taken by the founders of d’or et d’argent. They’re still having a summer sale on their site, so head to www.dor-et-dargent.com to check out the collection!
