    If anyone knows how to make tees, NYC-based designer Wilfry does. Specializing in that and that alone (besides his day job, we should add), he just keeps rolling out ones we love.

    Playing with the boundaries of bootlegging, you could class him as a fraudulent liability. We, however, are classing him as a jersey print genie. You remember the inexpensive designer tee, don’t you? And then, conversely, there was the v-expensive Kanye West one, for a whimsical $90,300. Taking on an idea that no one has done before —or maybe just that no one has dared to do before — he's making one wonder where to draw the line. Some might take a picture of a painting (you’ve all seen the flashes on Friday afternoons at the MoMA), others chose to print it on the front of a T-shirt. Appreciating the art of a fine thing, no?

    Take his latest matching his-and-hers offering. From afar, the printed tee looks black with a vaguely yellow checkered print. Nothing special right? But... stealing a closer look, it becomes more like one of those optical illusions, with tiny ’13 runway looks developing like magical little beings. Cute! Taking two of the most outlandish looks off the catwalk — John Galliano for the boys and Iris Van Harpen for the girls — and iconizing them into a repetitive motif will have you asking yourself: Is this bootleg or just art appreciation?
