For their 10th anniversary, the independent record label Arts & Crafts approached fellow cultural innovator, designer Jeremy Laing, to make something special. The label is fueled by cross-pollination, so in this spirit Laing paired visual artists with musicians to create a series of limited edition unisex T-shirts. The fractured photography of Jessica Eaton represents Broken Social Scene’s amorphous sound and Niall McClelland’s organic abstractions channel Timber Timbre’s nuanced neo folk (shown at left). Feist suggested Sojourner Truth Parsons for her tee (shown above), which features primitive figures from Parsons’ 2011 installation “To Drown A Rose.” “Each character is going through something,” Parsons says. “I think Feist’s music speaks to that.”
