Video: Nostalgic T-shirts
There are things that we never forget as children. In my case, it was a small screen mouse named Topo Gigio who, with his tender and sweet voice, would conquer, in the seventies, the hearts of millions of children in countries such as Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia and Peru.
Today, seeing or listening transports me immediately to the warm world of my childhood in Lima and I had that same feeling when I first saw the picturesque shirts of the Palomita brand. Original and fun, I was fascinated not only with how good they can look, but with the concept behind the creation: reviving 'vintage' logos of product brands and Latin American characters by putting them as images on T-shirts.
It all started with the idea of the Mexican Molly Robbins, whose objective was to create products for Latinos in the US that would make them agree to home and asked for the licenses of Mexican brands such as Lulu soft drinks and Roma detergents, among others. I imagine them perfect with jeans and Converse during the weekend, as a gift for fans of this type of memorabilia, and better yet, to pass our children from generation to generation, thus preserving memories that will always have a special meaning for one. The Popcorn T-shirts will be available beginning in the fall at Sears and JC Penney stores.
