(CHK) A monument of technology once – Windows XP computer operating system has been celebrated by MicroSoft with a series of eye-catching T-shirts.
Recently, the technology world was once reminded of the legendary Windows XP technology. Accordingly, Microsoft has collaborated with Supervsn designer Gavin Mathieu to launch a collection of Windows XP-themed t-shirts.
The “Hardwear” collection includes a variety of Windows XP-themed T-shirts, jackets, pants, and hats, along with old-timey icons like the wallpaper with the green grass hill…etc. The starting price for a shirt is from 60 USD to about 1.4 million VND.
According to Amanda O’Neal, director of social and cross-cultural communications at Microsoft, “The collection reflects the Normcore style, a lifestyle that focuses on individuals, not the clothes they wear. Every piece has a purpose, and every piece in Hardwear has a meaning.”
This is Microsoft’s first capsule collection with a purpose to bring a bold technology style to fashion. It also helps to recall Windows XP – the once legendary operating system for every computer user.
Not only Windows XP, the things around it are also brought back. For example, the collection also includes an MS Paint t-shirt that mimics the original color scheme of this fun drawing app and a “Hardwear” hat with Microsoft’s iconic 1990s colorants.
The prices of these items are also not cheap. A T-shirt can be bundled with a price of 60 USD (about 1.4 million VND) while the accompanying hat costs 45 USD, about 1 million VND.
In fact, Microsoft will also occasionally launch its own commemorative fashion collections like Windows XP sweaters in 2020.
Microsoft has also sold Xbox-branded clothing for many years, and also sells a variety of clothing in its store. Microsoft even started selling its Windows sweaters in 2020, with a mix of elements of MS Paint, Windows XP, Windows 95, and the legendary Minesweeper.
