Collab We Love: Visionaire x Gap Tees

(Source: Gap; Mario Sorrenti and Yoko Ono T-Shirts, $34.95 each) Yoko Ono, Mario Sorrenti, and Richard Phillips are just a few of the illustrious icons whose artwork is featured on Visionaire x Gap's second installment of collectible, limited-edition T-shirts ($34.95). Available today online and at select Gap Flagship stores worldwide, the tees celebrate the alchemy of art and fashion, and are inspired by the magazine's solar-themed issue, Visionaire No. 56: Solar. The collection will also be showcased and sold at a special Gap outdoor experience at New York's prestigious Frieze Art Fair (May 9–12).

Remember that pivotal scene in The Wizard Of Oz when Dorothy's house first lands in Oz, she opens the black-and-white door, and enters a new world of color? Well, these shirts are kind of like that. The tops are printed with UV-sensitive inks, embroidery, foils, screen-printing and full-coverage photographic printing, and seven of the 11 styles (those featuring artwork by Alex Katz, Yoko Ono, Richard Phillips, Ugo Rondinone, Peter Lindbergh, Francois Berthoud and Roe Ethridge) actually transform into color when exposed to direct sunlight, thanks to UV-sensitive ink.


(Source: Gap; Yoko Ono T-Shirt, $34.95)A highlight of the collection is Yoko Ono's "Grow Love With Me," a reissue from last year's Visionaire x Gap collab. Whatever style you prefer, only 500 tees will be made of each design, so don't sleep on this one.
