Womens Graphic T-Shirt: Air
This amazingly talented artist from Bangalore that has talked at TED, won the INK fellowship, designed her own iPad app, and has most recently been involved in a huge art campaign around India empowering women, chose to do design the graphic t shirt Air for this collection.
Her take on Air:
"For the elements collection, Invisible air was given a form through the peacock in a gush of wind blowing up paper planes and cranes, with a few dragonflies looking on, the movement of the wind reminding us that everything is transient."

"Aether is called the Fifth Element, but to me it is the first, or the zero, or the center element which is why I placed my design close to the heart. The symbol I chose is a Dodecahedron, the Platonic solid that represents Aether. It is the born center of all elements and the essence of all things in the material world. It moves in circles."
We tried all sorts of placements with this design - on the shoulder, the side and the back but then decided it was best to keep it simple - Keep all the attention on the Monkey!
The monkey within. Cheeky, in your face and only let out on special occasions.

"My take on element earth was developed from the idea of the divide between the man and nature. The big city life vs. the wild and natural form of existence.
We tend to get carried away with our lives in the concrete jungle – chasing a material life while on the flip side, we never really tend to appreciate the beauty around us."
A renowned street artist and illustrator from Barcelona that's constantly trying to bring the edge to brands all over the world chose to do Fire for us, a flaming heart to be precise:
"From the five elements, fire is the one I feel most identified with. I was very lucky to be able to work on that one. Across cultures I think we relate fire with passion, feelings, emotions and most of the time it is symbolically depicted by a heart.
That's what Fire as an element related with human being evokes me and that's why I chose such a design."
