Legendary London-based distribution label Gimme 5 has released its line of Spring/Summer 2019 T-shirts in a capsule titled “All Night Long.” Referencing the 1980s — which was when the company was founded — the tees see a number of graphics taken from the decade’s famed musicians such as Luther Vandross and Lionel Richie. As well as the 1980s, the collection also takes influence from the geometric designs of the early 20th century Bauhaus movement.
The term “All Night Long” comes from Richie’s 1983 hit single, and is emblazoned in a teal and pink Vegas-themed neon font on the back of a white T-shirt. On the front, Gimme 5 has taken the album art from Richie’s eponymous debut 1982 album, an orange-backdropped portrait which contrasts against the clean-cut T-shirt.
Gimme 5 continues the ’80s references with a similarly-themed Luther Vandross “Never Too Much” T-shirt featuring the album art from his Give Me the Reason album. Rounding out the collection is a pair of T-shirts featuring a patterned hand design and Gimme 5 typography, and the aforementioned Bauhaus-referencing T-shirt, which sees block colored circles and triangles alongside thin Bauhaus-inspired font branding.
The Gimme 5 “All Night Long” collection will be releasing on gimme5.com and at select stockists worldwide.
