Camp Collar Shirt in Bandana Print Linenblluemade
The camp-collar shirt is a new Blluemade silhouette that references the past. Based on 1950s shirting styles, in Belgian linen it's anything but kitchy. We are debuting our first print ever in this great style. This print was designed by artist Tomo Adachi and tells a story of Americana fashion. Americana is a huge source of vintage inspiration for the fashion industry, but less publicized are the stories of the people and labor behind it. 18th and 19th century American fashion was made and designed by Chinese and Jewish immigrants. The most famous example is of course Levi Strauss, but the story of Chinese sewers and designers is often more obscure. To celebrate this history, which continues today (the factories we use in New York's Garment District are run and staffed by Chinese immigrants, and are often family businesses), we pulled from Southern Chinese textile patterns to make our bandana print. We are so proud of our first print, and took extra care to pattern match the print of this shirt, so that the pocket lines up with the main body fabric and the collar features the center of the print. Also available in sky blue, toast, and poppy linen.
