Beethoven – t-shirt
To make some noise about our 10th anniversary, we have released a collection of limited edition t-shirts and tote bags that draw their inspiration from 1980s and 1990s band t-shirts. Our designs celebrate the mega stars of classical music.
Taking its cue from one of Ludwig van Beethoven’s most famous works, this t-shirt shows the composer bathed in moonlight. Though the aesthetic clearly plays on a heavy metal look and the illustrator Jussi Pohjanen is an aficionado of the genre, he says the inspiration for this design actually came from an altogether different source:
“The iconic eighth episode of Twin Peaks: The Return has a scene with the Moonlight Sonata playing in the background, slowed down to a quarter of the normal tempo. I imagined a stern and severe-looking Beethoven, as seen in this t-shirt, composing and performing exactly that kind of music, bathed in a weak moonlight.”
Our t-shirts are sustainably produced by Pure Waste using 100% recycled materials. Please note that the t-shirts are unisex but come in male sizing.
