My phone rang this morning, and it was a call from Shyma Shetty, one half of Huemn. We both come from the same quaint town of Mangalore, so we began our conversation with casual banter. Lol. Mostly her laughing at my small-town-uncle regional accent. But then the conversation veered towards Vietnam. Shyma has been in Vietnam since before the Covid-19 lockdown. And I love Vietnam. We spoke about how well-controlled it had been and how Vietnam did not have many cases all through till July, with zero deaths. But then all of a sudden there were a few cases that cropped up.
I really hope we all are able to come out of this stronger. Please stay safe, if you are reading this, and tell your fam and friends how much you love them when you still are able to.
Shyma was also excited because 16th August was the 100th birthday of Charles Bukowski. And it held a lot of significance to Huemn because their iconic Bukowski shirt had dropped during the fashion week of Autumn/Winter 2014. The shirt featured a portrait of the American-German poet, Charles Bukowski, shot by photographer Mark Hanauer back in 1981.

The Huemn Bukowski tee, this time dropped in an all-white tee format, at what is a relatively accessible price point. It comes in a single-oversized-fit. As you can see how it looks on me. For reference, I usually wear a size L tee. It has additional details like the image from his tombstone epitaph, his favorite poem on the shoulder accompanied by his signature, apart from that by-now-familiar portrait print on the front.
I threw on a clean fit, this Sunday and the tee tied my outfit together very neatly.
I am quite hyped I have the opportunity to own this iconic piece from the designer duo at Huemn (Shyma Shetty and Pranav Misra). Hopefully, I can wear this out when there are people around lol. Because I feel this fit didn’t get the eyeballs and appreciation it deserves. Hahahaha.
