& Other Stories Collab With Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon Is A Love Letter To Her Daughter

Whether they got it down Camden market for a tenner or found one on eBay, anyone worth their weight in navel gazing rock’n’roll has owned a Sonic Youth t-shirt at some point in their life. Who needs Kevin Bacon’s seven degrees of separation, because this top is the bridge between Alexa Chung and Kristen Stewart, the equalizer of Ben Affleck and Chloe Sevigny. Lucky for us fans, the band’s co-founder, Kim Gordon, has teamed up with & Other Stories for a new collection, which, in other words, means more iconic t-shirts will be dropping soon.


Writer, artist, musician and first-gen slashie Gordon was inspired by daughter Coco Gordon Moore whom she happened to enlist to model the collection. The limited edition collection is graphic, bold and man-repelling. There are hoodies painted with the words ‘The End’, and long-sleeve tops scrawled with ‘morning mirror’ in Kim’s handwriting along with jumpers and tees patterned in abstract paint washes. The range, which is mostly separated, is designed to be layered and worn loose. Oversized sweats have been designed to sit over floral dresses, and slinky camis are desexualised by being style with oversized t-shirts. This is not a collection of anyone who likes to show skin.

‘Dealing with the structured shapes of t-shirts and hoodies in this collection was almost like working with empty canvases. I decided to do pronouns because I like the idea of a word and the sense of drama surrounding it. Thinking of a word can create an atmosphere, and there’s a certain mystery about it. The screen printing makes the pieces feel more crafted and one-of-a- kind. Especially the abstract prints, they almost look tie-dyed, but more like art in a way. I like contrasts and when something unexpectedly is looking glam. Today, I think women can curate their environment by what they wear,’ says Kim Gordon.

Get your hands on this too cool collab on the 31st August when it hits stores.
