Trashy Clothing is one of those brands that never stop creating. And they make sure to always send out a socio-political message with every futuristic neo-garment.
A few weeks following the launch of their pride-centred SS22 line, the label that floats between the human and queerly robotic world has just unveiled a special collaboration with GMBH celebrating Palestine and advocating for its cultural and political freedom in a stylish manner.
The ‘Free Palestine‘ t-shirt and vest reflect very vibrant pastel tones that are ideal for the summer period. The green branch layered across and through the orange tanging circle in between seem metaphoric to both the season we are in as well as one of Palestine’s dearest and most cherished symbols: olive trees.
Based on archival research into historical art and activist graphics, the synergetic piece reflects both brands’ will to revive the Palestinian cause while supporting local charities with the exact same vim. Forwarding all proceeds from the sales of these two designs to Al Qaws, a gender-diversity focussed organisation that challenges diversity and gender roles in institutional fields, as well as The Land of Canaan Foundation, an organisation that plants olive trees and supports various agricultural projects in the holy land.
“We hope these items can help amplify the visibility of the Palestinian fight for freedom, as well as supporting organisations working in the region.” both brands said in a statement on Instagram.
Embodied, shot and styled by an eclectic team of talented creatives, namely Christian Stemmler, Davit Giorgadze and Ilyas Chaab, both pieces will only be available to pre-order until the 15th of September on GMBH’s website — and we can’t wait to put our hands on ours.
