If there’s one thing in music that has withstood the test of time, it’s the band T-shirt. And so, to celebrate 40 years of music through T-shirts, Propa Tee put on an exhibition during Tokyo Fashion Week at the Galaxy Gallery in Shibuya, Tokyo.

Propa Tee was born in June 2017 as a collaborative project between Gorillaz producer Remi Kabara and visual storyteller Harris Elliott, with the first exhibition coming to life as part of MIA’s Meltdown Festival at London’s Southbank Centre.

Much like the original exhibition in London, the show's international debut in Tokyo was comprised entirely of T-shirts from various personal collections.

In addition, the Tokyo exhibition served as the stage for a new T-shirt collaboration between iconic British fashion designer Katherine Hamnett — known for her infamous "Choose Life" T-shirt and being one of the catalysts for slogan T-shirts in general — and Propa Tee.

Highsnobiety was there to capture an impressive collection of music tees dating back to the 1970s that gave an insight into a range of musical subcultures, movements and genres.

Swipe through shots from the exhibition above and then learn more about The North Face’s iconic Nuptse Jacket.
