Discover Olga Steblak‘s Spring Summer 2020 Footballka Collection, that pays tribute to one of the most popular clothing pieces – T-shirt, presented on Thursday, October 10th, during the ongoing Lviv Fashion Week.
“T-shirt is an usual garment. It’s worn as a top clothing over last half-century. Everybody wears T-shirt, both the youngest and the oldest human. Besides typical male and female ones, there’s also unisex available. And this product is easy to make. It doesn’t need special tailoring skills or hi-tec machines. That’s why T-shirts can be manufactured just whenever you want, unless you buy them for pennies in China. So T-shirt has got an insane popularity, causing its widespread mass usage. It’s an usual thing, and this fact makes it unusual.
To create textile for one T-shirt, it demands about 2720 litres of water. This is an amount we drink for three years of our life. How much water has flown in favour of producing all the T-shirts in the world? And how many of these clothes are worn indeed? And how much textile from all the manufactured is merely needed for clothing? “Footballka” has set the ground for designers’ reflections on immoderate mass-market and profit races, on mindless consumption and galloping hyperproduction, on the augean stables of needless/naught both in nature and in culture. Therefore in this collection T-shirt shows itself not as a garment, but as a material for new things, becomes their accomplished module.“
