The Australian Ballet v Kat Macleod T-shirt

Kat Macleod and Ortolan have designed this limited edition T-shirt in conjunction with The Australian Ballet

You know I have a little soft spot in my heart for The Australian Ballet.  And then of course I also have a well documented soft spot (read ‘girl crush’) on the supremely talented and ridiculously lovely illustrator / designer Kat Macleod.

SO when this recent Ballet v Fashion collaboration popped into my inbox on Monday it really was a match made in TDF heaven. :)

Kat and her clever colleagues at design studio Ortolan have designed this limited edition T-shirt in conjunction with the Ballet… but if you think it’s just another stock standard T-shirt print you’d be wrong;  Kat was intent on doing this collab a little differently.  Hence the repeat pattern, rather than a more obvious front and centre motif. Kat also had a large part to play in the shape of the tee itself – she worked with the ballet to ensure the fabric and fit was perfect for those who like a soft, shapely, feminine fitted tee! Beautiful work! Loving the grey marle too.

They’re $60.00, they’re available here, and I’ll be damned if I can get through today without ordering one.

OH ps. Kat shares a little background info about this collaboration on the always excellent Behind Ballet blog. Do check it out!

Kat’s illustration for the T-shirt depicts a group of dancers in relaxed poses, with intricately patterned tutus.

    SQUEAL!
    Thanks for posting this Lucy – am currently in the middle of the checkout process on one of these little babies.
    I’m such a huge fan of Kat’s and this pattern is just so utterly gorgeous – not to mention the grey marle!
    YAY for pretty tees featuring little ballerinas <3

    What a fantastic design. It’s super stylish but still casual, I love it.
