Long Sleeve T-Shirt
A collaboration between ARKET, Apartmento magazine and the artist Martin Fengel, based in Munich, which resulted in a limited series of 200 exclusive long-sleeved printed shirts.
The collaboration presents an interpretation of the four pieces that make up the ARKET Cotton GSM ™ program. Each piece has been edited with an illustration that represents the qualities of its weight.
All illustrations are by the artist Martin Fengel, resident in Munich.
GSM PROGRAM BACKGROUND:
ARKET differentiates the number of knitting needles and yarn counts used to create a core collection of jersey materials in four different weights. GSM, a standard measurement of fabric weights in textile trading, stands for grams per square metre and indicates the material’s density. A high-GSM fabric is typically knitted with shorter loops and is thus thicker and more compact, while a lower GSM denotes a finer and more loosely knitted material.The customised machine settings yield a variety of knitted fabrics characterised by firmness and balance. The resulting array of fabric weights allows garment patterns to be replicated in varying textures for different applications.
