The latest of Mister Freedom's highly limited edition Rock 'n' Roll shirts, the Catalina print, is a collaboration with Japan's Sun Surf label (a branch of Toyo Enterprises) and, obviously, Mister Freedom. A completely custom print, imagined by Christophe Loiron (Mister Freedom himself) and then made a reality through the experts at Sun Surf, the design was inspired by a Fourth of July trip to Catalina that Christophe took.
Santa Catalina, a small island off the coast of Southern California, has been a lot of things: a relaxing getaway spot, a secret military base, an ideal destination for filming Western movies, and, since 1924, home to a herd of Buffalo (who were imported to the island as a "prop" in the western film "The Vanishing American"). Its iconic art-deco architecture and vintage travel ads, as well as its heritage of handmade ceramic art tiles cement the aesthetic of life on Catalina, which show through in the colorful, aquatic design of the print.
The shirt itself is a proper mid-century aloha shirt, with all the details of a vintage shirt from the 1940s/50s. Relaxed fit, open loop collar, and the super soft and comfortable 100% rayon it's sewn up in make this the must have shirt for days at the beach.
The quality of the Rayon cannot be understated, as high quality rayon like this is very costly to produce. Rayon was originally developed in France in the late 1800s, and is a cellulose fiber created from tree pulp - meaning it can be 100% organic. Woven with traditional methods, it wears like silk and breathes remarkably well, making it a pleasure to wear even when it's so hot that just being conscious feels like a chore.
Runs true to size with a relaxed, summery fit. Dry clean or hand wash only, hang to dry.
