A recent U.S. study of playground attire revealed an epidemic occurring on the chests of children. [See exhibit A: faux vintage tees.]
Only a handful of kids were identified as wearing T-shirts that had graphics with a fresh perspective. [See Exhibit Kids: a T-shirt company for littles that features designs from up-and-coming artists around the world.]
Upon further investigation it was discovered that the children wearing Exhibit Kids tees totaled 250 per T-shirt design, a number that can be attributed to the limited-edition, small runs. The most recent release, Bird by Zhishi, is from a Russian design duo who infuse humor into their stark illustrations.
In poststudy interviews, the parents of these kids expressed a keen interest in cultivating their children’s artistic eye and supporting emerging artists (each designer receives 20 percent of the revenue generated from his or her shirt).
Officials recommend swiftly responding to procure these shirts and dress your child to a tee.
