A few Co-Tee TV episodes ago, I reviewed Vaughn de Heart, a unique brand started by self-proclaimed Vaughntrepreneur, RoyLyn Le’Vaughan Palmer-Coleman. Well, Vaughn de Heart is back with a collection of new and limited items. Le Magnifigue was released on Black Friday and fittingly features 7 brand new Vaughn de Heart products, all of which are black. What makes this collection truly special is the limited run number of each of the products in the Le Magnifigue Collection. Each item is limited to seven pieces. Why 7?
“It actually start with the zip hoodie. I put Le Magnifique on the back and I thought I was done. Then while I was sitting at work one day crunching numbers (I work during the day as an analyst) the idea of the magnificent 7 came to me. I thought, “I’ll make 7 hoodies!” But that didn’t seem like enough. When I got home I got to my computer and started designing more and the idea of 7 items and making only 7 of each happened. Then the idea of the numbered cards to give it a special feeling. Then the idea of the gold tags, and the special drawstring bags as packaging. I actually started making this collection in August (That’s why there is a tank in the collection), that’s how long it took all of the details to come together, and now that it is made and my screen printer thoroughly hates me for putting him through this ordeal, the collection is finished.” – RoyLyn Le’Vaughan Palmer-Coleman
I took a quick peak at the Vaughn de Heart shop and noticed that a few of the items from Le Magnique are already sold out or only available in 1 or 2 specific sizes. So if you see something that you like, I highly recommended that you scoop it up! Items from this collection are priced from $24.95 to $54.95 and are available now from the Vaughn de Heart online shop.
Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

Les Gens Courageux by Vaughn de Heart.Pros: Les Gens Courageux comes packaged in a large custom black Vaughn de Heart plastic bag and is further wrapped in a separate plastic package (great way to protect the T-Shirt during the shipment). This V-Neck shirt is wonderfully soft and is nicely form fitting. I love that the neck hole is not extremely wide and long like many V-Necks that I have experienced in the past, instead it is just right. The single color, black print on the front features excellent typography and the print itself is not too think. Each Vaughn de Heart shirt comes packaged with a Vaughn de Heart drawstring canvas bag for free. This is definitely a nice surprise for anyone that orders from Vaughn de Heart. Also included in the package was a Vaughn de Heart sticker.Cons: I wasn’t the biggest fan of the print on the left sleeve since it was a bit thick. I also thought that the print on the front was enough as is, since the simplicity and message of the front is what makes the shirt a solid pick. Price: $13 but you can save 10% off your order by using the coupon code “COTY” at checkout.
