Reggie Yates x Burton Collection

T-shirts are a trend which will never get old. Casual and versatile, a crew-neck t-shirt is ideal for a day in the sunshine and a night on the dancefloor. And this summer, Burton has collaborated with British radio DJ and television presenter Reggie Yates to release an exclusive capsule collection of printed t-shirts and vests.

This new collection features prints from Reggie's own photographs, each of which reflects a personal moment in his life, including trips to Cuba, Kenya, and various music festivals. Although a t-shirt collaboration may not seem so glamorous at face value, Reggie has fast become a male style icon in his own right, and the images he has chosen for this collection make for stylish prints.

The print featured here is a monochrome mosh-pit scene, reflecting the summer festival season. The t-shirt is made from polyester, much like a sports t-shirt, and therefore has a shimmer and soft texture similar to the sports luxe trend. The striking print can be seen on both the front and reverse for optimal visibility.

Special thanks to my sister's boyfriend, James Whipp, for modelling the Reggie Yates x Burton t-shirt. As much as I like a printed tee, I simply don't have the physique to make a short-sleeved garment look sexy. Nor do I have the motivation to visit a gym and rectify this problem. Perhaps I should work on that?
