What started out as a small collection of 12 screen-printed t-shirts 11 yrs ago, has grown into a high-end fashion house; no surprise since Fashion Designer Travis Hamilton was inspired by this chic French woman. But today we’re highlighting Mr. Hamilton’s revisit of one of his very first t-shirts paying homage to Ms. Negris Lebrum, the “LE NOIR EST JOLI” tee.
