16 Photos Of Amazing Innovations In Men's Tee-Shirts

Picture Anna Wintour's face covered in crab legs. Edgy, right?

Artist and designer Christopher Lee Sauvé has been turning fashion and celebrity icons into witty graphic tee shirts for several years. He recently collaborated with artist Scooter LaForge on the painted tees you see in these images (they're sadly not available for sale as of now, but you can buy the tees that aren't painted from Sauvé's online store). "We're basically influenced by punk culture, anarchy — everything from that to the Pillsbury Dough Boy," Sauvé explained. "Very commercial, iconic pop, but as a pattern. There's a lot of super homoerotic stuff on [the tees] too, like the army boots on the Tom Ford one [pictured below], which is very S&M."

The '80s are pervasive in Sauvé's aesthetic — the faces with crab legs you see on the above "Save Anna" shirt represent Siouxsie and the Banshees.


The tights you see throughout are men's tights from We Love Colors. "They do crazy, hypnotic colored tights," said Sauvé, who worked with stylist Adtresa Edmundson on this shoot. "They pair so beautifully with the shirts bc the shirts are printed all over."
