We have always considered ourselves to be a stylish bunch here at War Child. We know our Westwoods from our McQueens, our Yeezys from our McCartneys. So we are delighted and honoured to be beneficiaries of a very special range of t-shirts, curated by one of our favourite stores.
Our friends at the fabulous Jonathan+Olivia launched FAMILY by Jonathan+Olivia at an event at their Toronto store on Friday 7th July. FAMILY by Joanthan+Olivia is a collection of t-shirts designed by some of the friends, family and acquaintances they have worked with over 25 years in the business. The shirts have been exclusively designed by artists and labels including Virgil Abloh from Off-White, Vexed Generation, Surface to Air, VICE TV Chef Matty Matherson and many more.
If you are in Toronto, you can check out the collection at their Ossington St. store, and if you happen to be in Paris, at Colette. If you can’t make it to either of those, worry not – you can shop for the entire collection online.
“In a time when there are those doing their best to polarise and terrify the world’s population this project celebrates homogeny, the beauty in youth and coming together as one to send a message.”
