Design by Raf Reyes:It is explained in Lewis Carroll's book that the spades (human soldiers cards) are gardeners, clubs are soldiers, diamonds are courtiers, and hearts are members of the royal family. I always loved gardening, watering your stuff out, whether they b investments, money trees [the perfect place for shade], or real trees/vegetation (naturae suprema - taking care of mother Gaia you dig?!). A beautifully laid out visual composition/collage by Raf comes announcing his own version of the Alice in Wonderland story for the 21st century, and subtle doubled-duplicated tonal prints and embroideries finish finessin’ the piece, and the master file at the back re-state in the VR®® Raf way how Lewis Caroll himself would have seen his work lent for aesthetically pleasing ends.

Design by Raf Reyes: A girl is a gun like they said. ‘Queen of Hearts’ is an iconic remake with an iconic lady; playing on the gender rebalance and the unconventional equilibrium of power. THAT pistolera marked an entire generation of geeks and freaks. A 90s babe, for 90s babies. Within this statement piece, the cards deck gets to be reshuffled and your heart rate goes up. Vital stats to tha max. Game lingo like tic-tac-toe (red V, black R-embroidered) come to support the main group of visuals imprinted on the front of the tee (including 3M reflective print), and the back comes forward in multi-colored palettes’ embroideries, all speaking+relating to each other, embellishing the rework nd finessing the tribute from the creators to the created.
