Printed T-Shirts With Purpose

The designer Jonathan Anderson has long cited the photographer Peter Hujar as an inspiration behind his work, at both his own label and the Spanish luxury house Loewe. This month, a selection of Hujar’s work will go on display at Loewe’s Gran Via store in Madrid, along with images by Hujar’s friend and protégé, the artist, filmmaker, writer, and activist David Wojnarowicz.

To coincide with the show, Loewe has released a collection of four limited-edition T-shirts to honor Wojnarowicz, whose deeply personal work about political and social issues relating to the AIDS epidemic, particularly after the death of Hujar, sparked political controversy — and provided inspiration — during the ’80s. Anderson chose four of Wojnarowicz’s works, made between 1982 and 1990 — including the colorful supermarket poster “Jean Genet Masturbating in Metteray Prison” — to turn into vibrant silk-screen prints. Just 400 T-shirts were made using each print, and all proceeds from the project will benefit the Visual AIDS Foundation, which preserves and promotes the work of H.I.V.-positive artists. $99, loewe.com — CATHLEEN O’NEIL
