These NOIR NOIR Trompe L’Oeil Animal Skin-Print Sweatshirts Are #TrippyMane

NOIR/NOIR prints like python, elephant, cat and crocodile skin or fur make 2D look 3D.

Now that sublimation prints, somewhat the craze of the past year, are being churned out in droves by the likes of even Walmart, it takes a really sick print to catch our jaded eyes. Enter NOIR NOIR, a line of simple yet très effective tanks, tees, and sweatshirts allover-screened with technicolor nature scenes, intense tapestries, and, most intriguingly, trompe l’oeil animal skin print shirts. The elephant skin in particular (thumb through the slideshow above for a few of my fave options, or hit their site to check out the entire range of offerings on one clean page) looks exquisitely 3D, as if the soft, weathered folds are knit into a spongy sweater. But they’re not. And, at least according to Night Slugs co-captain Bok Bok (who first tipped me off to NOIR NOIR via twitter), they’re also the brainchild of yung Parisian producer/prodigy Manaré, who put out his debut “Quartz/Down To Dis” EP in 2009 on ClekClekBoom.
