Their Oxford Circus store windows over Pride in London are never to be missed; so it is great to see Topman/Topshop have launched a capsule t-shirt collection for Pride month in collaboration with London designer and creative force, Charles Jeffrey Loverboy. Curating 5 pieces of original artworks by LGBTQI+ artists, each of the artworks have been commissioned by Loverboy and celebrate each of the rights fought by the queer community in the UK.
Ryan Driscol, Alex Gutapfel, Stephanie Linn, Frances Wilks, and James Spencer have curated the themes of ‘The Right To’; Gender Recognition, Adopt, Marriage, Serve and Intimacy, respectively. The stand out pieces have their commissioned artworks on the front, whilst their ‘right to’ pledge is on the back in a distinctive handwriting text. They really do make a statement.
Available today, priced £30, on Topman.co.uk and Topshop.co.uk – and from selected stores tomorrow – a hefty 30% of profits from the sale of each t-shirt will be donated to diversity Role Models, a charity which works in UK schools to prevent homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying through education and changing silly, misguided habits and language.
