Blogging is about taking risks sometimes,. Take a walk in my shoes: with the ongoing pandemic it gets hard to go out and shoot with a carefree vibe. This takes me to dig in my archive of photos, with the risk to end up in personal controversy, as you can see with this Makia t-shirt. Being part of the proposal of the Finnish brand that The Maxiemillion loves the most, it’s hard to say no, but then again you may think that Makia x Von Wright is a collaboration that I showed you more than once.
Of course I would love to post that Makia x We Got Beef collab that makes me water at the mouth but… I haven’t received it from Fresco Dist yet. Is this a sort of “read between the lines” reminder? You got it! The kind people at Fresco will read this thinking: “Yes, we sent to Max the whole capsule and he stressed each and every point already. It’s about time that we stay true to our name and send him something… fresh”.
The concept of fresh as “consume it now or it will be old soon” does not belong to Makia, anyway. This brand does not discount its items during sales: Makia is on a mission to design timeless items. Another reason why I considered to post this today. Are you starting to feel my Hamlet-like doubt?
So this tee, whose proceeds partly will go to The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation (Suomen Luonnonsuojeluliitto) has more than a reason to be here. One not to underestimate is the symbology around the owl. The owl was a symbol for Athena, Greek goddess of wisdom and strategy, before the Greeks allowed Pantheon gods to have human forms. According to the myth an owl sat on Athena’s blind side, in order to let her see 360 degrees of truth. Hence the owl was the representation of a higher wisdom and the guardian of the Acropolis at the same time.
Be wise then: browse Makia website, buy this tee and I’ll see you soon with We Got Beef collab, then!
