Azuma House t shirt by Lee Frangiamore



The artwork: 

The Azuma House in Osaka, Japan by Tadao Ando was completed in 1976. Yeah, it’s old but I still think it looks like it was designed only a few years ago. I love the fact that the interior courtyard doubles as the light source for all the rooms in the house. The solid blank facade completely shuts out the street. It’s a house that focuses on its insides rather than its outside. I’m not so keen on walking outside to cross over to my bedroom, but aesthetically this design is top notch and if I had the chance to move in I would! The design on the t-shirt is made up of three different elements: 1. The blue rectangle is the front of the house, 2. The pink shapes are the shadows from the interior courtyard and 3. is the layout of the whole house.

The shirts:

These t shirts are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly with cool-max-image-e1485361440757.png fibres ring spun into yarns manufactured exclusively for WeAdmire. These yarns are then knitted into a single jersey fabric suitable for t shirts.

The CoolMax bit exploits the surface tension of water to wick moisture from your skin. It works through micro channels engineered into the profile of the fibre. These channels are physical attributes, they are there for the life of the fibre.

The Fresh FX bit embeds a silver salt in the molecular structure of the fibre that stops the propagation of bacteria which, left unchecked, ultimately cause a sour odour. Because the silver salt is embedded within the fibre it, like the wicking, is similarly permanent; it will not leech out with wear and washing.

These attributes deliver shirts that remain cool and dry almost regardless of what you might do in them and similarly they remain fresh. And the ongoing performance of the fabric is guaranteed. This is important, these shirts will become your favourite items of apparel, you will want to wear your shirts again and again.

These shirts are marvellous to travel with, they stay fresh if you don’t have the chance to wash them, they wash easily when you do have the chance, and they dry super quickly. There is also a very useful side effect to all this: our shirts keep anything you wear on top of them and what you might wear after wearing them fresher too.

The cut and fit and sizing of these shirts is exclusive to us and was specified by Anastasia Vouyouka, a published guru of fit in the fashion industry.

The feel of the very best natural fibre shirts you have experienced with the performance of the fibres that set the benchmarks for wicking and freshness. It is very unlikely you will have experienced this level of technical performance in a decorated t shirt before.
