Not Cute Embroidered Green Long Sleeve Top

by Crushes
Sold out

Introducing our brand new collaboration with an independent underground artist we discovered from Christchurch! "Messy Cat" produces unapologetically sassy and feminist works that we are obsessed with. 

This design is made especially for those women out there trying to make their badass art and it still gets called "cute" because of our female perspective. What if a gal just wants to be bad-to-da-bone sometimes?!

This is a unique project that focuses on 100% making the MOST out of THE OLD by using LOCAL. Very "Crushes", non? That is:

- We handpicked good quality second hand tops with a high thread count and that rad vintage silhouette/colouring. We laundered all of these tops, and even shaved some back to good health because they were worth saving.
- We used a local embroiderer friend Doug of Tsuika Patch from Tāmaki's North Shore
- We found the LAST REMAINING local manufacturer of clothing tags to make our custom 'Crushes' tags
- We sewed each of the Crushes tags in individually, ourselves!

This top is 1 of 1 - there is none like it. It is a womens 16-18 and a mens XL with a chest measurement of 98cm. Of course, wear it no matter what size depending on the silhouette you prefer.

We hope you love this collection as much as we do!
