Patta is proud to present an exclusive collaboration with critically acclaimed photographer Dana Lixenberg. The Dutch-born photographer is renowned for portraying people from all layers of society in their pure form, drawing out the humanity of her subjects.
In addition to focussing on unknown individuals and communities in her personal work, Lixenberg has been commissioned by a wide variety of magazines to photograph well known figures, including Gil Scott Heron, George Clooney, Heath Ledger, Prince, Valentino, Whitney Houston, among numerous others, giving them the same visual treatment as her unknown subjects.
Patta and Dana have selected 10 portraits of cultural icons from her personal archive. The first set from the Patta x Dana Lixenberg Signature Collection feature the remarkably candid portraits of two modern day musical icons: Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace and Tupac “2Pac” Amaru Shakur.
The t-shirts are made in Europe, produced from 100% cotton fabric. The front features a high quality photo print, while the back is embellished with “Team Patta” typography and Dana Lixenberg’s signature. Each shirt is limited to 120 hand-numbered pieces.
The first set of the Patta x Dana Lixenberg Signature Collection is set to be released in store at Patta on Saturday, November 29, 2014.
