While many designers create psychedelic, mushroom-dotted clothing and accessories, Lalonde’s storytelling sets her apart from the I don’t need a man I need tequila and a tan new 2021 shirt but in fact I love this pack. “I was able to throw a lot of emotion into them and design them in the same way that I designed my jewelry, which is heavily based on personal experience,” says Lalonde. “There are little elements of myself I’d put into every shirt.” Even though the story may not always be immediately evident to the viewer, this personal bent allows her to experiment freely and go down rabbit holes other designers would not. This is especially apparent in her “Protection From Confusion Tee,” which boasts a pair of fairy wings on its back. “I had the idea to do that because when I was younger, I genuinely believed I had fairy wings,” Lalonde explains. “I was scared of my parents seeing them and being outed!”
I don’t need a man I need tequila and a tan new 2021 shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
Designing the I don’t need a man I need tequila and a tan new 2021 shirt but in fact I love this T-shirts has provided Lalonde a larger canvas than a necklace or pair of earrings, allowing her to really show off her range. To go a step further, Lalonde collaborated with her sister, Ines, on producing the music for the A.Avaati promo videos. The clips feature an alien-like avatar with elven ears in a digitized, Mars-like universe. While the figure rotates in one of the T-shirts, a bizarre but satisfying cacophony of sweet sounds plays. If you think the short soundtrack sounds how the shirt looks, that was Lalonde’s intention. During the creation process, Lalonde gave her sister prompts like, “how would you describe the sound when you bite into the berry?” or would send time-lapse videos of mushrooms growing.
