Merry 49ers Christmas Classic T-Shirt
Today (12 September), the festival has finalised the schedule for the upcoming event, which will feature programmes curated by Heba Kadry, Nala Sinephro, Slauson Malone 1 and Stereolab. Low?s Alan Sparhawk, Lost Girls, W.I.T.C.H. and ESG have been announced. As have Bala Desejo,?Caterina Barbieri?and?Space Afrika, with Barbieri and Manchester-born duo Space Afrika tapped for a collaborative show with visuals from Marcel Weber (MFO). Subtle patterns such as pinpoint designs or geometrics will allow you to develop your style further ? just make sure that you stick to jewel tones to avoid clashing with the Christmas tree. Luckily for you, we’ve done all the legwork. Introducing the five names you should have on your radar in 2024 (and beyond)? The?Maria do Carmo?girl is soft, sensual, quirky, and lives by the ocean. For her S/S24 collection, Sangue Novo contestant and finalist Maria da Carmo Studio celebrated all things feminine and summery. Here she chose to reinterpret traditional patterns such as criss-cross and argyle, with a modern new-gen twist and to work with summer staple pieces like light dresses, t-shirts and mini-skirts. Seeing the na?ve imprint of the designs and the use of soft colours, we can?t help but think of Constan?a Entrudo?s influence ? whom Maria do Carmo cites as one of her inspirations ? and both happen to have grown up in the Madeira Islands and studied at Central Saint Martins. Passionate about honouring her homeland, Maria do Carmo poetically included ? as she did in her previous collections ? jewellery made out of limpets, an aquatic snail typically found in the Madeira and Azores archipelagos, and a Y2K-inspired touristic t-shirt. According to a since-expired Instagram Story from Benji B, which you can check out below, the bespoke score featured ?95 [percent] unreleased Dean Blunt? and ?a couple of current favourites.? [sic] Dean Blunt?s last full-length offering,?Black Metal 2, dropped in June 2021. At the time we said: ?Few British artists working today ? in any medium ? are as consistently invigorating as?Dean Blunt?.
