LOOK Loves: M&S’s New Statement Tee Collaboration

Marks & Spencer have teamed up with Mercedes Leon, a London-based graphic designer, to produce a capsule collection of must-have tees for the Limited Edition range. As part of the brand’s commitment to support new, home-grown talent, there are four tee designs, and we’ve come to the conclusion that we want every single one!

Mercedes has created fun, summery prints including the sunglasses layered over a pale pink stripe and the graphic lettered tee. The strong contender for our favourite, however, has to be the lobster print, which we’ll be rocking all weekend. Mercedes said: “I’ve explored the concept of summer and have developed several ideas based on my experiences and memories. I’ve looked back to my childhood and have taken inspiration from trips to the museum, the coast and days spent at the swimming pool.”

We can’t get enough of the nostalgia! We’re sold. At £19.50 each, only 500 of each tee have been made, meaning you’ll have to be super speedy on the uptake. And who does Mercedes want to see wearing her new designs? “I can’t wait to see my friends in them. I want these T-shirts to make a statement… I hope they will encourage us to laugh, dream and celebrate Summer.”
