“Don’t give me roses when I’m gone. Give them to me while I’m still here, and can smell them.” -Mabel Williams.
Out of this quote is where our “Roses” capsule was born. To celebrate Black History Month this year, we chose to honor figures who not only inspired change in American history, but also are still alive today. Through a capsule consisting completely of graphic t-shirts, we elevated the likenesses of Muhhamad Ali, Maya Angelou, Bill Cosby, Stevie Wonder, and Spike Lee, representing the arenas of sports, poetry, television, music, and film. To bring our ideas to life, we enlisted local Atlanta artist Markeidric Walker to illustrate each of our honorees. Releasing one of our “Roses” tees per day, the capsule release begins today.
