World T-shirt Tour Champion 2012!

This year’s World T-shirt Tour was a roaring success with awe-inspiring and stylish tees from Sydney, Seattle, London and Los Angeles… Brooklyn, Brisbane, Manila and Perth. At the final tally, it was a little retro number from Gold Coast design duo Arkadia that stole the hearts of {KID} independent readers, and we’re super chuffed to name them our 2012 World T-shirt Tour Champion!

I’ve had an absolute blast sharing all these mighty fine designers with you, so it’s with mixed emotions that I share our very last tee.

World T-shirt Tour - Miinot

DAY TWENTY-NINE… Can you believe it’s the second last day of our World T-shirt Tour? I’m feeling a little bit fancy today after all the t-shirty goodness of the past few weeks… much like this super stylin’ parrot chilling out in his shiny gold pad. Introducing the Gilded Cage Tee by Melbourne designer label Miinot.

Miinot Gilded Cage Children's Bird, Parrot T-shirt

Get the Inside ScoopWhy should a child’s clothing be any less considered than an adult’s? With this question in mind, Miinot was developed by two like-minded creatives, who channelled their love of strong visual design, and their talent for hand-made prints, into children’s wear.

The SwagThe Gilded Cage Tee is hand screen-printed onto a 100% cotton Melbourne made T-shirt. It features a metallic birdcage print alongside a bold embroidered parrot who has all the luxury of a gilded cage by day, and the freedom to ramble under starry skies by night.
