Stars Design T-Shirts For Charity

Iggy Pop, Duran Duran and Daft Punk are among the musicians who have designed T-shirts to raise money for political charity Rock The Vote. The stars have all come up with their own take on the world-famous Playboy magazine 'bunny' logo for the 2008 Playboy Rock The Rabbit T-shirt series.

The shirts will be sold at Bloomingdales stores in the U.S. and online at ShopTheBunny.com.

The bands' original designs will be sold at auction with proceeds going to Rock The Vote, an organization which encourages young Americans to get involved in the political process.

Among the other artists to have contributed a T-shirt design are Hot Chip, The Shins, Gogol Bordello, The Pipettes, New Young Pony Club and Jamie T.

The lowdown on the T shirt, paraphrased...

When playboy asked him to design a t-shirt for their charity project he said through an intermediary his idea is... that they pick whatever photo of him they like and stick bunny ears on it. He's always liked bunny ears. So that was his concept. I did not choose the photo because sometimes it's more fun to be surprised.

Pix from photoshoot, with the T in between:







Have a greeeeeeat weekend all!

sorry...I only like the head part on this T-shirt.
The way they draw the jacket sucks to my opinion.
i would cut the head out and pin it on the back of another t-shirt.
the 2 photo's of the shoot are really great!

I liked the other pic of Iggy sprawling rather dissolutely geek on the floor in formal wear, like he's just com back from a hell of a party -- at the Playboy mansion? Playboy has put up info here:

http://www.playboy.com/magazine/features/rock-the-rabbit/

plus a Mick Rock interveiw (Thanks for the heads up Gui, http://iggy-pop.com) the other bands' Ts and more pix of Iggy. I admit I've been all caught up with the fine details about the shirt but just reminded myself that the point is to Rock The Vote! Arrow http://www.rockthevote.com/home.php

The T's will be available at Bloomingdales (not on thier site yet) Arrow
http://www.bloomingdales.com/

Iggy has also supported Rock 4 Choice, recent article here Arrow
