streetstyle t-shirt of the week: hb, jimi hendrix!

Happy birthday, Jimi Hendrix. Had he lived, this legend of legends would have been 70 years old today. But, lucky for us, his magic lives on in the incredible music and style he exemplified.  An original in every sense of the word, Jimi Hendrix was an innovator ahead of his time. He is generally considered to be one of the greatest electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most important and influential musicians of the 20th century. His body of work inspires generations and will continue to for some time to come.

The t-shirt shown above is a nifty tribute to him. Within it, we are privy to two sides of the man: the outlandish, prolific performer and the reflective, somber introvert. It is easy to appreciate the faded, washed-out aged texture used here. It adds depth and dimension to the concept. The good use of positive and negative space gives it good balance and allows for the design’s strong prominence. Staying within one family of colors was a smart decision and makes this montage of Jimi Hendrix a bold eye catcher. The resourceful use of color was what initially captured my eye as I walked towards the wearer of this tee. On closer observation, the imagery’s true identity revealed itself. Jimi Hendrix. Gone but never forgotten. May he rest in peace.
