Two years, several high-profile write-ups (on Buzzfeed, Hypebeast, and MTV among others), and a handful of select international collaborations later (with French online retailer Rad and New York-based designer Betina Ocampo), Fly Art finally finds a cozy spot amidst the local retail landscape that it calls home.
The tipping point in Thread 365’s decision to bring Fly Art’s self-proclaimed “rap lyrics on paintings” to silk-screened life? Thank the modern-day equivalent of hearing your garage band’s song on the radio for the first time — landing a coveted shout-out in one of Kylie Jenner’s Instagram posts (accelerating Fly Art to just a degree away from their OG goal of seeing Beyoncé in one of their designs).
Starting this weekend, buttery soft tees simultaneously emblazoned with the works of West, Botticelli, Lamar, Friedrich and, obviously, Knowles-Carter, will be up for grabs at all Common Thread branches. Providing just enough chill to get you through that last pre-holiday stretch.
