GTMM x Discos Ifá | ÌFÉ ASHÉ BOGBO EGUN - DIY CREWNECK SWEATSHIRT
Inspired by the legendary Misfits and the early 80's punk scene along with Audre Lorde's "Our Dead Behind Us" GTMM and Discos Ifá team up for this new ÌFÉ DIY crewneck sweatshirt. Ashé Bogbo Egun, roughly translates to "power to all deceased". Coming on the heals of ÌFÉ's recent EP "The Living Dead | Ashé Bogbo Egun" this punk style tee doubles down on the idea that our dead are with us always, whether we can see them or not.
Of the shirt Mun says, "I wanted to make something that would play on the notion that there are things around us, significant and powerful, that we may not be able to see with the naked eye, but that often leave traces of their presence if we know what to look for or how to look. I remember as a kid being fascinated by TV detectives "dusting for fingerprints", that these prints, these traces of something were there the whole time but we couldn't see them. There's something of that in our relationship to the deceased. Our dead are with us always, even though we can't see them we know that they're there."
Each sweatshirt is hand painted by ÌFÉ front man and GTMM shopkeeper Otura Mun using a special fabric spray paint making each shirt a one of a kind affair. 2 colorways to pick from!! Black and White and Orange and White. We went with classic Hanes Comfortsoft Crews on this one so the fit is spot on and the sweatshirts and super soft and comfy. These are total DIY style and pretty damn limited on the quantity side. Grab yours today before they're gone!!!
