Emil Kozak Lazy Days T-Shirt Collection + Zine

It has been a long while since we lasted reviewed tees from our buddy Emil Kozak, who designs awesome stuff all the way in Spain. Spain is a far ways from Hawaii, but I do hope that I can make it there sometime in my life. What I can do (and do pretty well) is take advantage of lazy days. Lazy days tend to be a bit more rare nowadays, but on the few occasions when I do have a lazy day, I love to just relax on the beach and enjoy the sun and the waves. That’s my perfect lazy day.

Why all the talk about lazy days? Well, that’s the name of Emil’s latest collection. The collection features a set of three very well designed T-Shirts (I wouldn’t expect anything less from Emil), a zine with 60 pages worth of Emil Kozak goodness, and an Optical Birds poster printed on heavy art paper (70×50 cm).

The collection is very Emil Kozak. The eye-to-detail is always present in his work and his designs. I’d actually love to get my hands on one of the Lazy Days Zines. It must have been one of hell of a task to decided which of those designs (in the zine) would be selected as the designs to be printed on the T-Shirts. Lazy Days is a stellar collection.

The T-Shirts are priced between 35€ and 40€ (~$47 – $52 US), the zine is available for 35€, and the Optical Birds poster is priced at 180E (~$237 US). All of these items are available now at the Emil Kozak online shop.

Polygons

This blog post is titled “Polygons” but the T-Shirt is called Polygon! How many polygons are featured on this shirt? Just two. That circle doesn’t count, remember. Or do you?

If you recall back to the days of your youth sitting in math class, you might recall in depth discussions about the invigorating world of polygons. Polygons, as I am sure you know, is a plane figure that consists of a finite number of straight line segments in a closed path. Squares, rectangles, triangles, rhombuses, pentagons and decagons are all types of polygons. But, a circle is not.

You can thank me for the math lesson, later. I’m sure that you appreciated it.

Back to the T-Shirt. Polygon is a fabulous design from the Spanish based indie clothing brand, Sr. Craneo Character Co. or Sr.CR! for short. With a brand name that includes “Character Co.”  I was certainly expecting some crazy cartoon type characters in the style of Tolky Monkys or even Wotto. This was not the case. Instead, I stumbled upon a very mature skate brand with a lot of urban kick. No kiddie stuff here. And I have to say that I was very impressed with their style. I even thought that their photography was top notch.

Polygon was my definite favorite from their line, but I can also recommend Astro Boy and Worldwide Domination – both are very solid tees. Polygon is printed on a 95% cotton 5% polyester T-Shirt and is limited to a print run of 50. You can pick up Polygon now from Sr. Craneo Character Co. for 21.00€ (~$29 US).
