A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to spend the evening with some delightfully clever folk, as part of a Kit & Ace Supper Club held at TW FineArt.
In anticipation of the first Queensland Kit & Ace store opening on James St, we gathered around a table in the gallery eating roasted cauliflower and talking about life and art.
As you can see from the photo below we were surrounded by some gorgeous works (this one by Max Presneill). I spoke briefly about my lettering project but mostly I just pledged my alliance to the art of the perfect t-shirt, which is what Kit & Ace are all about. It felt a bit dirty to bring up such trivialities--as the evening was leaning towards the lofty--but I do really care about what I wear. I am known to behave like an irritable toddler if I'm not wearing clothes I'm comfortable in and it feels like Kit & Ace are that one step closer to my kind of utopia: a wardrobe that 3D prints dreamt-up clothes on demand. Push a button and that ideal shirt--with that little detail you just dreamt up--materialises. Pre-ironed. The perfect fit. Definitely not synthetic. I, for one, can't wait for that kind of future.
