Not usually a vocal point of Engineered Garments, but this collection of tees from the brands spring/summer 2011 collection make for great reading. Taking inspiration from the shortly lived but much coveted FLAIR magazine which only ran for one year during the 1950′s and covered all aspects of culture from fashion to art and literature. Along with editorials written by famous names such as Salvador Dali, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Jean Cocteau, FLAIR was years ahead of its time with costs of production exceeding all else. Fifty years on, a “Best of Flair” was published documenting the magazine’s history so in addition that collection of tees makes for welcoming news.
“Literature, clothes, art, travel, decor, theatre, humor, comment, and entertainment… count on FLAIR to bring men and women of taste everywhere a new kind of magazine excitement.”
