It's a big day for Hillary Clinton in the pop culture world. First, Kendall Jenner endorses her on Instagram, and now, you can buy the Marc Jacobs & Public School's Hillary Clinton campaign t-shirts that Jenner herself rocks in her photo. If Hillary was looking to hit the twenty-something demographic, she may have struck a very important cord.
According to Complex, the tees are part of the first collection of the "Made for History" project, in which Clinton partnered up with Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, and Public School's Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osbourne to design unisex t-shirts. According to the website (where you can buy all three), Made for History is a "limited-edition collection from fashion's biggest names, designed to help elect the first woman president of the United States, and Democrats from coast to coast."
Marc Jacobs' tee features Hillary's face in a red, white, and blue illustration, and features three stars and "2016" emblazoned underneath, which is very reminiscent of Obama's "Hope" poster, which was created by artist Shepard Fairey. According to the website, Jacob says, "My support for Hillary is grounded on our long-standing shared belief in equality. I am proud to share this t-shirt as a champion for equal rights, for the progress we have made and for the hope of continued progress with Hillary as president."
Jenner's Instagram that she posted featured this very tee.
Perhaps my favorite design is that of Chow and Osbourne, which reads "Make herstory" in white font in front of a black background. According to the website, the duo said, "A Hillary Clinton presidency would mark an exciting and bold new chapter in America's story — and in the story for women's equality. Change doesn't happen by keeping things the same. Real change comes from being brave, being different. We have a long way to go but it's not only time for history but herstory as well." Simple and to the point, I predict this minimalist story will be a hit.
And lastly, Tory Burch's design is a super colorful statement, reading "Women's rights are human rights," in rainbow font. Burch says on the website that this is "A colorful tribute to a seminal moment for women’s equality, when Hillary Clinton traveled to Beijing and proudly declared: 'Women’s rights are human rights.'" Gotta love it!
Just looking at this tee is giving me all the happy feels.
So, who's on board to get buying? I have a feeling these won't last long. My eye's on you, Public School.
