I recently discovered XCVB, a UK based indie brand. I had a look at their offerings and have to admit that I was instantly drawn to Foreign Body. I think it was the combination of odd imagery and tiny text. Speaking of the text, it seems as if come straight out of a noir novel from the 1950′s:
“So as a bloom against her throat his jealousy blossomed. Betrayal cursing through his veins like a pack of red dogs, the hairs bristled along his spine. His faults becoming perfection, his lies in harmony would soon ring true. This false and fevered glare. In vain defense she tried making eyes at him but he had made his own for her as blind as love itself.”
So cool, right?! Foreign Body is available now from XCVB for £25 (~$41 US).

Once in a great while I get pitches from indie tee brands that make shirts especially for the ladies. Now, me being a dude, I tend to stay away from posting shirts specifically for ladies. However, there are exceptions like Lady Umbrella. California based Palomaya is one of those exceptions. The brand, which was started by Lorena Musselman,was founded as a means to express the Latina and American culture within her. As a former marketing executive, Lorena has a solid understanding of the Latin American markets and is hoping to build on that to further Palomaya the brand.
Palomaya currently has 3 T-Shirt designs available at their online shop, with each being fun and vibrant without being too girly. The intricate and edgy Day of the Dead, looks like it’s the perfect shirt for any girl with a tad of spicy attitude, and it’s actually my favorite of the bunch. The Palomaya Dove tee sort of reminds me of a sign that I would see at the top of a trendy high end bakery – it’s got a light and fluffy vibe that I dig.
All three of the Palomaya designs are priced at $19.99 a piece and are available now for purchase!
And I should also let you know that Palomaya is looking for some new artists for future T-Shirts. Check out the flyer below to get more information!
