Miles Davis (rainbow) t shirt by Daniel Davidson



The artwork:

Miles Davis May 26 1926 – September 28 1991. Miles Davis was considered by many to be one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. This design – one of two by Daniel Davidson that admire Miles Davis (as opposed to the Kind of Blue series that specifically admire the the album). The shirt attempts to reference the astonishing creativity of Davis’ development as a musician with the rainbow of colour in his mind.  The sister shirt shows a “tunnel” of images hinting at the necessity of mastering the chosen craft so as to be apparently effortless in delivering the ideas that come to mind.  Davis’ most famous album, Kind of Blue, being a good example of this. The musicians reported having been given an outline brief of what was required in the studio on the day. The job did not require many takes, so few infact the legend has it there was only one.

Kind of Blue is probably Miles Davis’ most accessible and influential legacy. In an interview , I think with Gil Evans, it was said his playing on that album was an attempt to simulate the sound of Frank Sinatra’s vocals. An apparently simple idea that clearly gained a life of its own. How would you place Miles Davis in the context of popular influential 20th century musicians?  Sinatra, Presley, Miles Davis, The Beatles, David Bowie in no particular order.

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.
