David Beckham in Aurel Schmidt for Opening Ceremony


How do you wear a t-shirt like David Beckham? With a paid of Dior Homme Distressed Corduroy jeans. In the first picture, he paired his Aurel Schmidt with a beanie from Burton and in the second picture with a DQM Trucker hat while carrying a backpack from Burberry.
 
If you ever want to look stylish in a t-shirt, make sure the t-shirt has some history to it. Aurel Schmidt is an artist that makes detailed drawings of surreal figures by combining  tiny illustrations of flies, insects, condoms, cigarette butts and other detritus to create the larger image. Her collaboration with Opening Ceremony was all about a collection of lettered graphics, culminating in an 11-shirt release (one for each letter of Opening Ceremony). Each shirt references many everyday elements from donuts and toothpaste to bacon, lighters and cigarette butts. The graphics are printed on custom vintage t-shirts with distressed qualities.
