Stella McCartney has designed a t-shirt and tank-top to raise awareness of the Meat Free Monday campaign.
Featuring a print by Linda McCartney – “Lucky in Daisies” – and made from organic cotton jersey, the t-shirts retail at £125 and tank-tops at £115.
The tank-top featured in the Sunday Times Style magazine back in May, and both items are likely to be hugely popular with shoppers, as well as playing an important role in raising the profile of MFM.
The designer t-shirt was launched in the Stella McCartney flagship store at Bruton Street, London

SUPERSTAR WA footballer Buddy Franklin’s debut as a high-end T-shirt designer may be shot down in flames – thanks to a design that may breach anti-tobacco advertising laws.
The controversial T-shirt features a large print of a model smoking, underscored with the words: DIRTY HABIT.
Anti-smoking group Quit has complained loudly about the shirt – saying it is prohibited under anti-tobacco promotion laws and sends a dangerous message to kids from one of the AFL’s highest profile role models.
The Hawthorn goalkicking demon launched his designer T label – Nena & Pasadena – last month.
But the Department of Health and Ageing confirmed yesterday it would investigate the T-shirt, which designer Paul Edwards argues sends an anti-smoking message.
“We feel that the mere fact that the slogan is DIRTY HABIT sends a pretty obvious message that the Nena & Pasadena crew finds smoking, even when being done by the gorgeous woman, pretty uncool and merely a dirty habit,” he said.

Artwork produced by legendary folk singer/songwriter Bob Dylan is to go on sale in the UK, it has been announced.
All of the pieces being offered were completed by Dylan between 1989 and 1992 and belong to a portfolio known as The Drawn Blank Series.
Each piece is signed and dated by the star, with prices expected to be in the range of £1,250.
But for those whose budget will not extend to a print, a music T-shirt dedicated to Dylan is another effective way of showing support for the popular musician.
The singer is still a regular performer and is currently gearing up for a tour of Europe which is due to take place in June and July.

When Steve Fisher, a vendor at the Saturday Hingham Farmers Market, was laid off from his job last May, he turned the challenge into a victory.
Instead of wallowing in self-pity, Fisher and his wife, Jill, grabbed onto the opportunity of turning his artistic abilities and love for fishing and her marketing skills into a new business, “Red White & Bluefish.”
Steve’s technique is to apply textile paint to a recently caught fish and then place a T-shirt on top of the fish and rub it. Their product line features brightly colored, highly detailed hand-printed apparel and accessories imprinted with fish, lobsters, crabs, and shells through a unique “fish printing” process. Their success is a classic example of the saying, “When one door closes, another opens.”
Steve had been in the sign and graphics business for more than 30 years when he lost his job. Jill currently works in the marketing department of a nationwide mortgage lender. In her free time, she organizes the family business, orders supplies, schedules markets, and does some of the printing.

A Topeka, Kansas, USA man hopes his T-shirt creation will raise people’s spiritual consciousness — and generate money for a local mental health agency.
Gary Plemons, 51, a resident of the Landmark Plaza apartments at 1001 S. Kansas Ave. in downtown Topeka, has commissioned a local shop to print gray T-shirts with a drawing he made and the words, “Jesus is My Psychiatrist” and “The Word of God is My Therapy.”
Plemons said he came up with the saying based on his life’s experience.
“He’s definitely a psychiatrist,” Plemons said, referring to Jesus, “and your therapy is right there in the Bible.”
The first shirt rolled out of the print shop Wednesday. By noon Thursday, Plemons said, he had sold 12 shirts for $10 apiece.

Launched in March 2009 during some of the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression, Bring the Hope founders Mike Marker and Jeremy Chastain had one goal in mind: to bring a little optimism to the world.
And they’re doing it one slogan at a time — thanks to their Fortville-based T-shirt company. Using their professional skills, Marker (a public affairs consultant) and Chastain (a screen printer) create words of hope, which they print onto shirts sold to support various causes and organizations, including KidsFirst Foundation, Folds of Honor Foundation and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Chastain, 41, recently was busy screen-printing T-shirts that would benefit victims of the earthquake in Haiti — with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Caribbean country.

Two US based companies have recently launched whose fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles.
A Lot to Say rPET T-shirts
A Lot To Say’s a brand new eco-brand, offering T-shirts made entirely of recycled bottles. Each T-shirt’s emblazoned with a catchy big word or phrase like Hot or Virgin — with fine print beneath the bold word explaining the eco-relevance of said word (i.e. Virgin: plastic is what most shampoo and conditioner bottles are made from and they add to over 25% of waste in landfills. not sexy) — giving the T-shirts a rather sensationalist-then-very-preachy as well as sort of confusing (Does the 25% refer to all plastic? Or just the shampoo-and-conditioner bottles?) feel. The T-shirts are printed by a water-free printing process called “air dye” that requires less energy and reduces water pollution, according to A Lot To Say. Both T-shirts and tanks cost $35.99 each.
Be Present renew tees
be present, a Colorado-based green yoga clothing company, added a line of “Renew Tees.” Made from rPET and organic cotton, each Renew Tee’s made in the U.S. and printed with water-based inks — and upcycles 3 to 5 plastic bottles from the landfill, according to the company. Get one of 3 designs — a lotus with lily pad, buddha, or a tree — for $35 – $39 each at Be Present.

World reaches us from SpringFair.com’s Charlotte Cowell that a global internet sensation has been caused by a slighlty odd looking pastiche t-shirt of 3 wolves howling at the moon ! According to Cowell
“The maker of the three wolf moon t-shirt, The Mountain, has found itself with an overnight internet sensation that’s increased the company’s Amazon sales by 2,300 per cent.
The craze started after an ironic joke review posted by Brian Govern, a student at Rutgers University, USA, 6 months ago on Amazon.com, which attracted further joke reviews for the t-shirt on the Amazon sellers page. “Once I tried it on,” wrote Brian “that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women…”
Since then sales of the t-shirt have gone through the roof. Before the Amazon explosion just a few of the t-shirts were being sold each day, but now sales have reached 100 per hour. The Mountain is now printing 1000’s of more t-shirts to cope with the demand and the story has attracted the attention of the BBC and Daily Mirror in the UK, while a comical You Tube marketing video has received 21,000 views in the past two days. ”
Each to their own I say …. 🙂
