Season 3 Shirts Now Available

Limited edition Dissect S3 shirts are now available for pre-order!

The S3 commemorative shirt image is inspired by the line “There’s a bull and a matador dueling in the sky” from the song “Solo” by Frank Ocean. The coloring is inspired by children’s rainbow “scratch art”, tying into the nostalgic childhood themes of Blonde. Finally, the two stargazing figures are young adults who may or may not be under the influence, reflecting the teenage experiences shared throughout Blonde (“We laid out on this wet floor/Away turf, no Astro/Mesmerized how the strobes glow”).

We also have standard Dissect logos tees available.

These shirts are available for a limited time. Pre-order today.
