We love underground Melbourne fashion label, Rest In Peace (RIP). The three lads behind it are doing some amazing clothing designs, many of which play on the visual twist afforded by the name of the brand. The t-shirts in particular are very cool and have already found their own little niche in the Australian market. The genesis of the label was simple: ‘The first book of the Old Testament tells of creation; Adam and Eve; the Fall of Man; Cain and Abel; Noah and the flood; God’s covenant with Abraham; Jacob and Esau; Joseph and his brothers. Now you have Rest In Peace, created not by Mathew, Mark, Luke and John, but Patrick, Mark and Tom. It’s The Third Coming!’ And the clothing itself? ‘It’s a hybrid product that offers the best of both worlds. We incorporate many other elements of design into Rest In Peace so it evolves beyond just fashion’. We have five Rest In Peace t-shirts to give away to random Lost At E Minor subscribers who either forward this posting onto at least six of their friends or leave a comment under this posting outlining another potential fashion related meaning for the abbreviation RIP. Winners announced on September 27th. Watch this space. [see also Sumakhi dress giveaway]
