One of our favourite Toronto-based record labels, Arts & Crafts has teamed up with beloved Toronto-born fashion designer Jeremy Laing to create a line of t-shirts blending the worlds of music, fashion, and art. With all the profits benefiting well-known Canadian music charity MusiCounts, Laing has produced and directed visual artists Derek Sullivan, Jessica Eaton, Sojourner Truth Parsons, Niall McClelland and Jason McLean to create original designs inspired by such notable Arts & Crafts artists like Feist, Timber Timbre, Dan Mangan, and Broken Social Scene.
The limited edition collection is one of the many creative ways Arts & Crafts have marked their ten year anniversary. Earlier this year they announced a music festival in Toronto called Field Trip, and just last week they released their Definitive Label Retrospective double album showcasing their artists greatest hits and never before released rarities (stream it here). Arts & Crafts continue to pave the way creatively for Canadian musicians and artists as one of the most influential and progressive independent labels.
