One thing that is very distinctive for Berlin is its street art. All over certain areas you will find stencil prints, graffities and artwork on paper glued to walls, posts and pavements. But while graffitis and tags generally have a bad reputation, the artwork on paper is considered to be quite cool. You know you could easily get rid of them with water, but nobody really does, they like it. There are tons of weblogs, books and foto series about street art, but now the art is finally going onto a new medium: Clothing.
Redspective is a new label that combines street art with urban fashion. Cynthia Carson from New Zealand and Gernot Ober from Germany are the creative heads behind the project. The collaborate with artist and designers from Berlin and Eastern Europe. In their brand new store at Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße (near Alexander Platz) they sell shirts, hoodies, pants, bags, accessories and more with street art on it. Some of the artists they represent are Boxi, Nepumuk and Peachbeach. See some artwork, fotos from the store and more infos after the jump.
They have a webshop on their site, too.
