If you have recently found yourself longing for all of your old issues of Sassy Magazine or have caught yourself perusing eBay for a Caboodles case or some Lisa Frank stickers, you are not alone. Most of us start feeling an intense amount of nostalgia when we realize we are truly becoming adults, so we seek to bring back some of the products from our pasts in an attempt to recreate the good feelings we had when we were kids.
Such is the case with designer Mayuko Asano. She created a scented T-shirt line called SPIFF in 2008 based on the matching scented shirts she and her mother both used to wear when she was a little girl. Asano cherished that shirt so much as a kid that after a brief modeling stint at Elite, Asano decided to launch an entire line of tees similar to that of the one she had as a child.
The newest contribution from Asano in the world of the graphic tee is a collection called “Love Rules.” Though the construction of each shirt is pretty basic, each one contains either a fancy bow, heart, or key, all which appear be hanging from the shirt collar the same way adult-sized costume jewelry would hang on a child. The new scent on each shirt is called “destiny” – which fortunately, smells like a romantic floral rather than the destiny of a pessimistic person. A flowery smelling future that is pretty much already accessorized? Sounds perfect for a lazy girl like me.
Check previous seasons of the t-shirts to see what other scents have been used by the brand, or check out the website http://www.spiffstar.com/. (Side Note: Where in the world is the rapper Spliff Starr?)
