Designer Heron Preston has teamed up with photographer Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio for the release of his latest project. For his third bootleg T-shirt, Preston looked to death metal for inspiration. The new design combines the Russian words for “flame” and “wave” rendered in death metal-style lettering with a 1775 painting by English artist John Hamilton Mortimer called Death on a Pale Horse. The shirt is actually two pieces, a tee with a turtleneck layered underneath. Additional details include embroideries of the Russian word for “style” on the wrists and collar. The Heron Preston x SHOWstudio collaboration will be available online here, beginning May 6.
