CHOOSE LIFE

George Michael has sadly passed away last year. He became a famous in the 1980s with his band WHAM! At the same time Katherine Hamnett‘s oversized, white slogan t-shirts, the ones with the large block letters, were equally populair. These t-shirts were launched in 1983. We are quite sure that everyone can see the simlarity between the t-shirts and the billboard placed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1969 “war is over of you want it”. (pictured above on Times Square in New York City but it was simultaneously displayed at Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles and at six European cities). Both are protesting against ‘unfairness’ in the world.
Well, Just that. Have a happy 2017 Y’all! xoxo

PS
Mimi Berlin isn’t the only one with treasures in the attic: Ms Wilhelmina found an original Hamnett t-shirt on her’s!
