For our first major collaboration since launching in Fall 2016, we partnered with The Great Women Artists to release a diptych two-piece collection, launching for International Women’s Day on 8th March 2017. With only 35 pieces per design available, they are limited edition and artworks in their own right.
The two t-shirts celebrate the resilience and renewed importance of female artists within the art historical canon, and notably the phenomenal impact of Louise Bourgeois and Frida Kahlo, who are immortalised through Amarcord’s unique use of hand embroidery.
Wearing an iconic quote by a female artist shows you support and stand with women. The chosen quotes do not only resonate with the artists’ practice, they also speak universally to creative industries. Both Kahlo and Bourgeois spearheaded artistic movements throughout the 20th century and still remain huge influencers in art today.
