We all love a bit of sartorial politicising, so what better way to show our solidarity with London than with our clothes?

Following ES Magazine?s landmark London United issue, which paid tribute to the city?s resilience in the face of tragedy and the recent terror attacks, the magazine is launching a series of t-shirts to raise money for the Evening Standard?s Dispossessed Fund.

Partnering with t-shirt manufacturers Everpress, the five iconic covers by Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor, Jamie Hewlett, Wolfgang Tillmans and Ai Weiwei will be reproduced on t-shirts and are available to buy for ?25 each.

Seventy per cent of proceeds will go directly to the Dispossessed Fund, a charitable fund run in partnership with the London Community Foundation. The remainder will go to Everpress to cover the cost of production.


For each t shirt bought, ?18.75 will go straight to helping the local people living in your community- whether that?s the children at your local school, the pensioners you pass on the street every day or the survivors of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

As these are limited edition, be sure to snap up your favourite ? or all five - before they run out.

For more information, pick up a copy of this week's ES Magazine.

Hi IlonaM,

Just in case you haven't realised, you have repeated your post twice :-)

Are you part of this initiative? Wondering if you know where the other ?6.25 goes. Does it go to the Evening Standard?

Thanks for pointing that out! No, I'm not part of the initiative, I just thought it was rather a good one and wanted to spread the word. Have bought an Ai Wei Wei t-shirt myself. As for where the ?6.25 goes:

'Seventy per cent of proceeds will go directly to the Dispossessed Fund, a charitable fund run in partnership with the London Community Foundation. The remainder will go to Everpress to cover the cost of production.'
