Design 5: Life of the Party REMIXED

Posted by Ian Anderson on

The last of the five designs to be introduced: Life of the Party REMIXED



Here's what the back of the tee says:


 
As stated in the intro of the Life of the Party white color way, the inspiration for this design came from the spirit of being one who enjoys to have/attend parties and really knows how to enjoy themselves whenever out and about.

It represents an individual who enjoys company with him while having drinks, but is also the best dressed amongst his friends and everyone around.

However, we wanted to add a twist to the design by flipping the colors inside out to create a remixed version.  

We also added the following "Bring the party some life" print to the back to complete the tee.

"Life of the party. Bring the party some life." 

It's been really exciting creating these designs within the past few months and having the opportunity to share them with you. 

I hope that you have found these emails to be interesting and have enjoyed the five designs.

Be expecting an email later this evening with details on the fit of the clothing, materials used, and further details on the exclusive offer. 

If you have any questions now, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am more than happy to assist you!

Design 4: Established

Posted by Ian Anderson on

Established...



This design was inspired by the look of a sporty, collegiate issued long sleeved tee with a modern slim silhouette. 

You will think I am crazy for saying this... but out of all the designs you may be interested in so far, this one is a must have. 

I know that designs 1, 2, and 3 are much more interesting than this.

However...

Regardless if you went to college, are currently in college, or not in college at all. 

This should be the design that each of you, especially if you are already wearing Ian Marko, have in your wardrobe.

The reason I am saying this is because this tee is basically our team jersey that lets the world know who we are and what we represent together.

Design 3: Life of the Party

Posted by Ian Anderson on

Are you the life of the party?



As you can see, this illustration represents Bova Bear in an elegant setting enjoying drinks with friends at a party together.

We actually created this design in two color ways, not only because we love it, but because many of you have wanted to see this design put on a tee.

This is the clean design. However, you will see the REMIXED version Thursday, October 26th. 

Anyhow, the inspiration for this design came from the spirit of being one who enjoys to have/attend parties and really knows how to enjoy themselves whenever out and about.

It represents an individual who enjoys company with him while having drinks, but is also the best dressed amongst his friends and everyone around. 

What are your thoughts on this design? Are you the life of the party?

Design 2: Stay Gold

Posted by Ian Anderson on

Stay gold, my friends.

This printed tee is a clean, classic design that displays Bova Bear outlined in gold.



The inspiration for this design came from something I value greatly, which is staying true to oneself no matter how much pressure society is putting on you.

It seems that society as a whole drains individuals of who they are and confines that person to stay within the walls of what a collective group believes.

To me, this is not a way to live. I believe it's important to remember who you are and to not change it. 

In other words, march to the beat of your own drummer.

But most importantly, never stop shining and always be yourself.

Design 1: Mystic White Horsebit Loafers

Posted by Ian Anderson on

Ah... the Mystic White Horsebit Loafers.



The inspiration for this design simply came from my personal love of white horsebit loafers.

Now the reason is because when I was growing up as a kid, I always admired the individual who was wearing them.

Mainly because they were the people who:

1. knew how to dress well;
2. were wealthy; 
3. had confidence; and
4. had the power or was the hero/leader of the pack (Miami Vice Don Johnson comes to mind)

They always remind me of one who dresses elegantly and throws yacht parties around the coast of Miami.

Most importantly, they are a major component of Ian Marko's identity. Therefore, it only made sense to put them on a tee.

However, there is a deeper meaning behind the design. It's not simply just a pair of loafers on a shirt. 

The Mystic White Horsebit Loafers are a symbol of power and elegance.

What's your thoughts on this specific design?

P.S. Not sure if you have noticed, but you will see either white Gucci horsebit loafers or white Ferragamo horsebit drivers appear frequently on our product pages and the front page of our website.
