Trinitas is a clothing label that was founded in 2009 by german based design and art collective Nous Sommes Des Soleils. The idea behind the label and why we started it was that we wanted to create something that wasn‘t just a t-shirt, but something of that the future owner would know that it was something unique and special.
Instead of going the easy way to achieve this, by making it insanely pricey, we decided to make our products very limited and to give them a collectible feeling.
The plan was to make sets, called Volumes, of shirts with only six motives, always with a different topic for every set, and to release a new set each two to three months. The motives are limited to 50 pieces in each size and once they are sold out they won‘t be reprinted.
To make them stand out, the designs are printed on custom designed oversized t-shirts we hand made. Due to the length of the shirts they suit men as well as women.
The motives on the shirts are about contrasts. Good and bad, dark and light, beauty and uglyness, happiness and sadness. And the way we think about those things. What is ugly? Where can we find beauty? Also the kind of dark, monochrome and minimalistic fashion of the motives is the contra to the overflow of colourful shirts during the last years.
