Antonio Vivaldi, Spring by Roberta Faiella

£ 39.00

Roberta has Spring, from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, in mind for this take on the admirable and e'rso gifted Antonio.

Music, perhaps through being so readily accessible, likely delivers more pleasure and happiness to society than any other art form. But when it comes to a career music is a very capricious master. Vivaldi was as extravagantly gifted as any musician you could name, prolific, popular, hugely influential, quite savvy, in every way admirable. You might expect significant wealth. He died prematurely at the age of just 63 and in poverty. Mick Jagger remarked in an interview: "In the last 250 years there have probably been only 50 where you could make a good living as a musician. Those years coincided exactly with my career."

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
