Upstream Clothes co. – Deer t-shirt

Upstream Clothes co. is the new buzz in Milan. You may have seen this brand popping here and there recently with some fresh tees and fleeces so here I am to pass you the info about this new kid on the block. Meet Mattia Colombo and Ghilan Ghirardelli. What happens when one of the two has all the right contacts for sourcing and printing and the other is a skilled artist? They join forces and come up with a plan. They saw an opportunity to shine among all the t-shirts companies because their plan was right. They are going upstream, like salmons do. Too many cheap t-shirts that lack in quality and concepts? They have both. Upstream t-shirts are not average blanks. Mattia explained me that they design not only the graphics but even the blanks. This means that the cotton fabric is smooth and light, the print is accurate and there is no sign of cut off label with another label stitched over. All the infos about the t-shirt are screen printed inside so you can even read it: made in Italy. This is the Deer t-shirt, the result of a collaboration with Cheone, this multi tasking Italian street artist that you should get familiar with. The black and white trend is catching up and there is no way to stop it, same for all the subjects portraying animals or animal prints. Laura O was mad happy to wear this, so if your idea is to dress to impress, you are up to a good start. I have some more stuff to show you from Upstream, stay connected…
