LOEWE recently announced an art-based initiative aimed to benefit Visual AIDS — an organization keen on preserving the works of H.I.V.-positive artists through compelling exhibitions and publications. In doing so, the luxury label’s creative director, Jonathan Anderson thought to commemorate the legacy of iconic artist David Wojnarowicz — controversial details and all — by selecting four unique projects in which to create evocative T-shirt designs.

Accomplished in the realms of visual art, the written word, and filmmaking, Wojnarowicz drew much ire for his works centered around the growing AIDS pandemic plaguing much of the ‘80s. After being diagnosed with the illness himself, Wojnarowicz’s inherited a firm political stance, challenging the conventional norms of how the public at large digested the expressive world of art.

The featured images appear on clean white cotton crewnecks. Each priced at $135 USD in a limited run of 400 pieces per design, the shirts are now up for grabs online. All proceeds will be donated to Visual AIDS.

In other fashion news, Stüssy and Converse are showcased in new Bows & Arrows editorial.
