How to describe NYC in a word...
Commune and Memoir makes t-shirts that communicate the story of New York City through 8 different words: Galvanic, Spectral, Idyllic, Abrasive, Pervasive, Inexhaustible, Fervent, and Elusive. Seeking to elevate the city as a work of art that can be observed, interpreted and described through curated words, these t-shirts offer an alternative to images as a trip memoir. These words are derived from a vast "word collection" that the New York based brand has been assembling for years. The t-shirts are made in Peru from the highest quality Peruvian pima cotton in a factory that practices safe environment and fair labor standards. Shop the collection.
From Latin eludere
1. Hard to comprehend or define
2. Difficult to catch, find, or achieve
I chose elusive because I've always liked the sound of the word and I think that it accurately speaks to how the city is ever changing and can continually surprise you no matter how well you think you know it and when you think you do, there is still more to discover. NYC really has such a unique energy in this regard. This t-shirt has a modern, minimalist graphic feel so I choose to go simple and classic with my styling, pairing it with lightly distressed jeans, sleek neutral sneakers, cat eye tortoise sunglasses and a rose gold wood chronograph watch. So what do you think of this look? Is there a word you would use to describe where you live?
