Altru x LIFE Magazine’s menswear collection examines some of the publication’s most epic snapshots. Pictures of JFK, New York City streets and young California-based city slickers are emblazoned in black and white across the t-shirts. LIFE’s own trademark has been superimposed on to these images, imbuing the apparel with a sense of authenticity.
LIFE Magazine has captured some of the best moments in history. Altru’s examination of the media conglomerate’s photo vault brings forth an unlikely merger between menswear and journalism. Though they may be interpreted as antithetical to one another, they have come together quite nicely here. Male fashion enthusiasts may now make bold stylish statements, ones that are political, cultural and intellectual all at the same time.
