Westfall the heir to the Comme des Garcons throne.

Brett Westfall Self Portrait

We here at Virgil Normal are proud to stock the most original graphic tees hand dyed by the man himself. Westfall a long distance runner and fashion maven has produced a limited run of surreal tees. Hand drawn and made of cats, mermaids, and school lunch. The series tends to morph into surprising skulls that also act as fantasy villages reminiscent of a Murakami novel.

We interviewed Brett Westfall and he put together a self-portrait and playlist for your listening pleasure.
