$10 RIPT Apparel: Labyrinth

Join the conversation

Tonight's design, "labyrinth," by Emmy Star Brown is another t-shirt that I don't find very interesting. The design is a large brown mass, which I guess is the labyrinth. To me it looks like a giant piece of melted chocolate, or something more unmentionable.

This shirt's namesake movie was more interesting. The design tries to be complex, with the number of lines present in the middle of our labyrinth, but that doesn't do it. Not for me, anyway.

Everything looks the same -- as any good maze should -- but to a fault. This sameness does not make for good fashion. I want to see some definition, some character to this maze. I want to see more detail. I want to see sculptures, aging brick, overgrown plants. I want to know what I'm looking at.

I've seen better from RIPT. Tonight is just not their night.
