Soleil Noir graphic tee shirts
It’s been such a long time since we featured a really good t-shirt line that shows both consistency and design quality. So, when I came across Soleil Noir, I knew this collection should be here on the blog, where you all can see another example of an indie brand that offers excellent products.
You should know that review is mainly based on the designs and I can’t vouch for the material of the t-shirts, but you should know that the majority of blank t-shirts are American Apparel or Spreadshirt. The t-shirt styles are quite varied, which is not that common for small brands, that focus on 2-3 basic models. So a big plus for rolled up sleeves, Women’s Boyfriend Style T-Shirts and Boat Neck Long Sleeve Tops. What is surprising is that they also have baby clothes, like onesies, kids t-shirts and long sleeves. The products are printed and shipped to you by their partner Spreadshirt.
Now, the designs are just gorgeous: they are all hand drawn, telling a story inspired by vintage culture, reflecting the romantic literature, photography, fine art of the late 19th and 20th century. They have a slight touch of dark and gloomy but they all radiate nostalgia. The name of the brand itself has been inspired by the poem El Desdichado (The Disinherited) by the poète maudit Gerard de Nerval.
