German born and in New York living pop artist Jim Avignon designed a special collection of casual t-shirts, sweaters, caps and scarves for the label New Yorker.
You can find on the pieces bones, skulls, animals and robots as frontal or all-over prints for men and women. For women the colors are bright and fruity, for men black, dark blue and grey bring a classical touch to the pieces with loud motifs.
Battle against Poverty
The collection supports the battle against child and youth poverty: a portion of every transaction is donated by the artist and New Yorker to institutions and projects that make young and needy youths stronger!
The Jim Avignon Edition is available beginning 17 September 2008 in New Yorker stores across Europe. Check out www.newyorker.de
