In the market for a new T-shirt designed by one of Germany’s most accomplished electronic artistes? Of course you are. Ellen Allien‘s involvement in clothing design is not a new development. In fact, fashion design has been a part of her skill set for a long time. But now she has unveiled a new line of T-shirts, and the images and ideas connected with them are characteristically idiosyncratic.
This latest line from Allien has been named “Mut,” which is German for “courage.” The designs are dubbed Fish (below), The Way, Trail (above) and Allien.
Musing on their distinct meanings, Allien says, “Water means natural life to me which I am always trying to catch in-between. Nature feelings, nature power and the beauty of the earth. The way to something is what I am interested in, I am enjoying the ways which always can change in the end, too. The trail is a sign being left. I love footsteps in the sand or in the cold snow, trails of animals in the forest or the trails of lava flow of a dead volcano.”
