STAY ALIVE IN 85 - Katharine Hamnett

HAMNETT, Katharine.
Original invitation card [160 x 240mm]. Black text printed on glossy red card. London: Katharine Hamnett, 1985.
Verso a little rubbed.

Striking fashion show invitation bearing the slogan of the t-shirts that formed the centrepiece of Katharine Hamnett’s Summer '85 collection. The slogan that was applied to vivid red and yellow t-shirts demonstrated Hamnett’s support for the women’s anti-nuclear protests at Greenham Common airbase. Hamnett declared 'Logo t-shirts are designed to put ideas in your brain. You can't not read them. They make you think, and hopefully do the right thing'.
