For Bianca Chandôn‘s latest collection, Alex Olson found inspiration in famed photographer Tom Bianchi’s book Fire Island Pines, Polaroids 1975-1983, a collection of works that, according to BC, “[offers] a candid snapshot of gay life, documenting a time before the AIDS crisis.” With hopes of embodying the “energy,” “color” and “essence” of Bianchi’s book, the capsule includes tees, both short-sleeve and long-sleeve, and hats, all in various bright hues. Best of all, the brand is donating a portion of the collection’s proceeds to Visual AIDS, a non-profit organization utilizing art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists and preserving a legacy.

Hurry to doverstreetmarket.com to shop the collection as it’s quickly selling out. Additionally, the collection is available June 29 at 1 p.m. EST at the brand’s online shop as well as at Bianca Chandôn retailers worldwide.

Bianca Chandôn is proud to present our collaboration with Tom Bianchi for Summer 2018. The collection embodies the energy, color and hopefully captures some of the essence of Bianchi’s “Pines”. In 2013, when Bianca Chandôn was little more than an idea and a few home-made Lover t-shirts, designer Alex Olson was first exposed to Tom Bianchi’s work. The candor, joy and intimacy of Bianchi’s photos are an inspiration that has helped define the aesthetic of Bianca Chandôn. Bianchi’s book, “Fire Island Pines, Polaroids 1975-1983” offered a candid snapshot of gay life, documenting a time before the AIDS crisis. Bianchi said, “I never set out to be a photographer. I simply wanted to tell the world that we were here and show them what our world looked like.” In that same spirit of discovery and love, we are donating a portion of the proceeds from this capsule collection to @visual_aids , a non-profit organization utilizing art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over. ?
