Gap Partners With Pop Artists For Color-Changing T-Shirt Line
Richard Philips, Alex Katz, Yoko Ono and more create fashionable tees in special UV sensitive ink.
In 2009, art and fashion publication Visionaire released a special edition issue titled ‘Solar.’ It featured black and white photographs by famous artists, printed in a special UV sensitive ink that changed into color when hit by direct sunlight.
Co-Founder of Visionaire Cecilia Dean wanted to expand on this idea in their new partnership with Gap, and developed a line of shirts that is inspired by summer, color, and sun. She decided to make use of the color-changing ink they had previously used in the materials for this new collection.
