This famous painting, Owned by the Uffizi Gallery, was painted for Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de’ Medici’s Villa di Castello around 1482. It is also said that the painting is a celebration of the love of de’ Medicis mistress Simonetta Cattaneo Vespucci. I went to Florence years ago but I did not have chance to see it . My schedule was tight and there were so many people lined up outside of museum…. now I regret that I did not make big effort to go there. This painting is recreated in 1988 film ‘The adventure of Baron Munchausen’ with Uma Thurman.
To the layman, I suppose the most famous Botticelli would be ‘The Birth of Venus ‘ (personally I can’t help thinking of Monty Python . Not to lower the tone, of course). This particuar design depicts the arrival of Spring. The story (although historically unclear), is that such pagan depictions were later a source of spiritual conflict that would result in a ‘Bonfire of the Vanities ‘. Other stories tell of his simply abandoning such paintings, having (according to Vasari) fallen under the influence of a Dominican Friar by the name of Savonarola . Whatever happened, Obscurity, following his death in 1510, would be Botticelli’s lot until the 19th century.
These t shirts are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly with 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.
