SAMSØE SAMSØE unveils unisex capsule collection
Samsøe Samsøe unveils a unisex printed t-shirt for its capsule collection, which draws attention to the makers behind it and the cities they come from.
Samsøe Samsøe continues to work on small capsules each season, where the items are not sorted by gender. The unisex collection has previously included software and poplin sets (shirts and trousers) – but this season, the brand chose to focus on a loose t-shirt, which is perfect for all summer occasions, and introduced striking prints made by carefully selected artists – with the inspiration behind each print coming from their roots. Below is a small bio of each illustrator and their work:
Martina Lorusso, also known as MOMUSSO, is an Italian illustrator who focuses her work on creating pop-emotional visuals. Although originally from Umbria (central Italy), she lives in Milan. She describes the city as “La finestra che affaccia su infinite possibil-ital”, which translates to “the window that looks out on infinite possibilities”.
Farah Alimi is an illustrator and painter based in Marseille, France. She started drawing in 2020. Over time, she has returned to her memories of Damascus, Syria, where she is from. Her works often portray and capture the rich culture of Syria with its climate, people and traditions. This printed and embroidered t-shirt is a celebration of Damascus – Farah’s birthplace.
Sine Jensen is an illustrator based in Copenhagen. Sine makes mainly naturalistic pencil drawings, works for both national and international magazines and exhibits her work when the timing is right. Inspired by the iconic lakes of Copenhagen and Sine’s portrayal of them – she gives us two motifs on this t-shirt. The back shows us a bouquet of lilacs growing along the lakes, while the front shows a “Københavnerstang”, a very classic Danish ice cream that Sine likes to enjoy on hot summer days when walking around the lakes.
