My family teases me about having a thing for shirts with stripes, so when I saw this picture of designer Raf Simons wearing this crazy striped shirt, it caught my attention. I did a little research and found out that it’s a Jil Sander multi-coloured geometric striped t-shirt that retails for $583, so I guess I won’t be buying one of those anytime soon. But I do like it, because it reminds me of a Gene Davis painting, seen below right. It’s not an exact match, of course, since Gene Davis’s stripes are all straight vertical stripes, but the color scheme is pretty close.
