Fashion label LOEWE recently unveiled its art-focused initiative honoring the late talent David Wojnarowicz. Its latest project dedicates itself to assisting Visual AIDS, which is an organization focused on preserving the works of talented HIV-positive artists through captivating publications and exhibitions. LOEWE's creative director Jonathan Anderson thought that its focus should dial in on David Wojnarowicz, who has accomplished much in the world of visual art, film making, and written word. The luxury label honors him with four unique t-shirt designs, as much of his work surrounding the rapidly growing AIDS pandemic during the 80s.

After David Wojnarowicz fell ill to AIDS itself, he inherited a solid political standout that questions the conventional concepts of how society understands the expressive idea of art. The celebratory t-shirts all boasts a clean white canvas constructed from cotton materials and a crewneck cut. There are only 400 shirts per design and are priced at $135 USD each, now available online at LOEWE. Notably, all proceeds will go directly towards Visual AIDS.
