Dollar dollar bill

I'm lucky enough to have friends in my hometown who keep me up to date with the current art/fashion/events that I'm missing out on with moving to London (which to be fair is hardly all doom and gloom!). Today a friend of mine called Kano introduced me to the two dollar shirt. 

The two dollar shirt is part of a project by art collective 'milk 2 sugars' (which funnily enough is actually how I drink my tea), the concept is a backlash at the price of cotton going up and in my eyes making a point about British consumerism. The T-shirt itself costs literally $2 (or £1.28) and has been created for you to rip, tear, pin, poke, stitch and rework into something magical and completely new.
There's only been 100 printed and about 40 left which will be on sale tomorrow (4/10/10) from Dais boutique in Byram arcade, if you have your eye on one of these beauties get down there early or go home empty handed! 


  1. What a brilliant idea. As a Londoner myself, I won't be able to get my hands on one. But I'm certainly jealous of whoever does manage to.

  2. That is a truly beautiful idea.
    Milk Two Sugars had some pages from their publications exhibited at the Warehouse Weekend, such good stuff.
