Bianca Chandôn & Tom Bianchi Team up for Limited-Edition Pride Capsule

Revenue from the line will go to Visual AIDS.

Bianca Chandôn and Tom Bianchi have released an exclusive Pride collection. The line comprises of T-shirts and hats that arrive in bold summer shades.

Each tee is stamped with Chandôn’s text logo to contrast against the monochrome base. The capsule’s campaign imagery and design pull from Bianchi’s photography book Fire Island Pines, Polaroids 1975-1983 which “[offers] a candid snapshot of gay life, documenting a time before the AIDS crisis.” Ladies will be able to choose between short sleeve and long sleeve styles that are colored rich pink, teal and blue shades. To support the LGBTQ+ community, the duo will be donating a portion of the capsule’s revenue to Visual AIDS, a non-profit organization that supports HIV-positive artists using their work to stimulate dialogue and understanding.

Each piece shown above is available at Dover Street Market and  biancachandon.com now. Choose your favorite hue and cop while you still can.

Bianca Chandôn is proud to present our collaboration with Tom Bianchi for Summer 2018. The collection embodies the energy, color and hopefully captures some of the essence of Bianchi’s “Pines”. In 2013, when Bianca Chandôn was little more than an idea and a few home-made Lover t-shirts, designer Alex Olson was first exposed to Tom Bianchi’s work. The candor, joy and intimacy of Bianchi’s photos are an inspiration that has helped define the aesthetic of Bianca Chandôn. Bianchi’s book, “Fire Island Pines, Polaroids 1975-1983” offered a candid snapshot of gay life, documenting a time before the AIDS crisis. Bianchi said, “I never set out to be a photographer. I simply wanted to tell the world that we were here and show them what our world looked like.” In that same spirit of discovery and love, we are donating a portion of the proceeds from this capsule collection to @visual_aids , a non-profit organization utilizing art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over. ?
