Old Navy teams up with Popular Mechanics for line of kids T-shirts
File this one under Unlikely Fashion Collaborations. Mass retailer Old Navy is teaming up with Popular Mechanics, the 108-year-old science and technology magazine, for a collection of T-shirts for infants, toddlers and kids.
The shirts, which debuted this week in stores and on oldnavy.com, feature four different designs, all inspired by vintage, transportation-themed Popular Mechanics cover art. Priced from $10.50 to $12.50, these high-octane designs are priced to move.
The two companies are also hosting a design contest, Kids Can Do Great Things, that invites kiddos over the age of 12 to create an original design for a Popular Mechanics cover that depicts their personal vision of "the future of transportation."
The winner will receive a $500 shopping spree at Old Navy and have his or her design featured in an upcoming issue of Popular Mechanics. Entry forms will be available in stores nationwide starting Feb. 5. For design inspiration, check out a gallery of the magazine's covers from the last 100 years.
