In a massive show of Singaporean creativity, 9 Fountains has collaborated with Kult, Sifr and Blackmarket 2 to create a line of limited edition, super-premium graphic t-shirts. The K/9/S collection consists of fifteen Singapore-based designs handpicked from the range of international artwork in Kult Magazine’s “Animals” issue. The issue--and resulting t-shirt collection--is full of facts about animals, visualized by some of the most exciting artists working in the world today.
The Kult artwork is intended to "create a stronger bond between man and animal by increasing understanding" while the selections shine a spotlight on the thriving but oftentimes subterranean local art community in Singapore.
The garments themselves come from Sifr’s exquisite Essentials line which combines premium pima cotton, superior hand feel and sturdy construction in a contemporary fit. 9 Fountains, the event organiser, printed the t-shirts using its revolutionary direct-to-garment printing technology, which produces highly-detailed and vivid prints.
With a limited run of only 40 per design, every t-shirt is a true collector’s item and features hand-written edition numbers and packaging conveying information about the particular artwork and artist.
This collaborative effort will launch at Blackmarket 2 on October 6th with an exclusive meet-the-artists event where a K/9/S t-shirt installation will take centre-stage. A special pre-order sale will take place on-line at 9fountains.com from September 15th-30th where consumers can reserve the t-shirt of their choosing at a discounted price, with the first 50 customers receiving a special invitation to the launch event.
The t-shirts will retail exclusively at Blackmarket 2 on the 2nd floor of Orchard Central from October 1st-31st for $79 each.
