It's hard to not want to bury your head under a pillow for the next four years, and we're not even two weeks into the Trump presidency. But thankfully designer JoeFreshGoods of Chicago made a "Thank You Obama" clothing line that will help us remember simpler times. And he got none other than Chance The Rapper, a fellow Chicagoan and friend and fan of Obama's, to model the line.
The collection includes a "MALIA" t-shirt that I suggest you hover over, because the fine print takes the shirt from great to incredible, as well as an Obama jersey, a Barack and Michelle wedding t-shirt, and more. JoeFreshGoods shared his inspiration for the line on his website. It's sweet, relatable and a reminder that we can continue to put good things out into the world, despite the feelings of dread.
with this project i wanted to timestamp a period in my life where i felt like i can do whatever i wanted to do and be whatever i wanted to be. The night obama won his first term gave me so much hope, especially & most importantly as a black man. I decided to make a collection saying "thank you" and give me something to smile at every now and then when i look in the closet.
Grab yourself some goods and give yourself something to smile at when you get dressed to face the bleak, relentless world each morning.
