Other standouts include the Kid Cudi c/o Virgil Abloh “Pulling Strings” T-Shirt and “Leader of the Delinquents” merch range, along with Tom Sachs‘ Fanta Black Longsleeve T-shirt. Rounding up this week’s product drops is the release of Awake NY‘s SS20 collection.
Tom Sachs Fanta Black Long Sleeve T-Shirt
Always delivering ingenious artful cultural items, Tom Sachs recently released his latest purchasable art, the Fanta Black Long-Sleeve T-shirts.
A quirky interpretation of the soda brand’s logo informed by the blackest black paint in existence, the top is centered around a bold label print. Moreover, the left sleeve features the text: “It won’t fail because of me.” While the right sleeve is embellished with “Tom Sachs Color Systems 6MBGH.” Printed on a Fruit of the Loom blank by LQQK Studio, the artist is seemingly poking fun at the blackest black paint in existence, Vantablack — a material developed by Surrey NanoSystems in the United Kingdom.

Kid Cudi c/o Virgil Abloh “Pulling Strings” T-Shirt & Merch Release
For the monumental drop, Cudi tapped longtime friend Virgil Abloh for the Kid Cudi c/o Virgil Abloh “Pulling Strings” T-Shirt features a sketch by Abloh that references when Cudi playfully expressed his displeasure to tabloid news website TMZ back in 2012. On the back of the shirt is a title of the track scrawled reminiscent of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s text style. Other merch offerings come in the form of limited edition pressings of the “Leader Of The Delinquents” single on 7” vinyl, 12” picture disc and cassette with the artwork from Virgil.
