Liam Gallagher’s clothing line, Pretty Green, has joined forces with Gorillaz artist Jamie Hewlett to design a new collection of three limited-edition t-shirts to benefit Teenage Cancer Trust. The White Guitar Collection, created by Hewlett, depicts classic guitar poses inspired by three rock icons: Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott, Pete Townshend of the Who, and the Modfather, Paul Weller. All the designs feature a white guitar as a unifying symbol for the collection.
In a message on Pretty Green’s website, Liam Gallagher discusses his collaboration with Hewlett and Teenage Cancer Trust. ‘This is a charity close to my heart and something I continue to support both personally and through Pretty Green. Jamie’s designs are timeless like me!’
Jamie Hewlett is best known as the creator of the Tank Girl comic series, as well as the co-creator of virtual band Gorillaz for whom he does the artwork. He has had a long-standing relationship with the charity. Notably, Hewlett was the designer behind the logo for the Teenage Cancer Trust’s annual concert series at the Royal Albert Hall.
Pretty Green has, also, had a long relationship with Teenage Cancer Trust. In 2011, Pretty Green designed another limited-edition shirt for the charity, which was a huge success. Gallagher has also performed at Teenage Cancer Trust’s concerts at Royal Albert Hall both with Oasis and, later, with Beady Eye.
T-shirts cost £55 ($82.50), and all proceeds will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust. The T-shirts are available now in Pretty Green’s Carnaby Street, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham stores. They are also available online through the Pretty Green website.
