Teaming up with artist Marnix Postma, BY BROWN has designed an eco-friendly t-shirt for VOGUE ITALIA, which is available exclusively on the YOOXGEN web-shop. The t-shirt is made from deadstock modal, milk fibre and organic cotton. Marnix Postma hand printed the t-shirts with water-based ink, giving each individual t-shirt a unique touch. We used the slogan 'RESPECT BEYOND RAIN' referring to BY BROWN's belief that we have to take positive steps in sustainable production, consumption and post-consumption, creating awareness and spreading sustainable values.
