Are you tired of perusing Urban Outfitter’s graphic tee section only to walk away with the same handful of basic white shirts week after week? If so, channel your inner quirky fashion blogger and head to Philadelphia Printworks’ Misprint Sale on Sunday, Sept. 30, from 12–5 p.m. at their flagship store, located at 1901 S. 9th St.
Philadelphia Printworks, a self–defined “,” has been redefining the cross–section of fashion and activism since its founding 2010. The brand churns out collections inspired by the social injustices plaguing the Philadelphia community, such as sexual harassment, political division, and racial intolerance. Each piece, be it a tote or sweatshirt, combines bold graphic design and kitschy cartoons with a keen social awareness for a certifiably #woke look.
This Sunday, Printworks will be selling misprinted tees and totes from their hallmark collections for only $5, which is just slightly more than a large Wawa mac & cheese. Look out for designs from their notable “School of Thought” collection, which uses a college apparel template to reimagine a world where higher education lauds black philosophers. Deemed “, this phrase is emblematic of the purchases from their collection that you can make this weekend. They’ll be controversial, conversational, and most importantly, cute.
Limited non–misprinted items will also be available for a discount. So if small misspellings and slightly off–centered screen prints aren’t your thing, Philadelphia Printworks has you covered.
So what are you waiting for? Skip the trip to that overcrowded Forever 21 in Center City and shop local. You might just find the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe.
