LMX Unlimited Presents:
LMX_55 ‘Imitation BODE Hand-Drawn T-Shirt’
LMX Unlimited is excited to unveil its 55th product: a T-shirt that indexes a bold new standard in industrial innovation. Using production methods that replicate the sentimentality, historicity and personal quality of handcraft techniques employed by small luxury firms, these T-shirts were individually manufactured so as to contain just as much heritage, hand and New England Terroir as dominant market competitors.
Through a deep understanding of the historical Angloid Mode of Production (AMP) and innovative materials research, LMX Unlimited has produced a functional white paper, a look-a-like T-shirt carries exactly the same emotional and mystical value as its progenitor, that, thanks to productivity minded innovation, can be brought to market with a dramatic reduction of necessary labor time.
As a friendly challenge, LMX Unlimited looked to market maker BODE for examples of exactly where its new technology could be applied. The original ‘Hand Drawn Bacchus T-shirt’ was a perfect test case—iconic, imbued with the sensitive aura and contingency of hand production and crosscut with a deep commitment to the narrative qualities of New England. LMX Unlimited’s imitation seeks to respect the heritage and artisanal quality of the original work while radically altering the means of its reproducibility.
Profitable investments of fixed capital have proven notoriously difficult in boutique small luxury firms which value narrative and contingent handicraft. Industry leaders such BODE, Story MFG or evan kinori prize delicate affective work modeled after European luxury houses but augmented by the particularities of the American AMP. With this T-shirt, LMX Unlimited has proven that the aura of such commodities can not only be replicated, but meaningfully automated. Lubricated by synthetic spermaceti, our light industrial model mechanizes the production of terroir, allowing massive growth potential for moribund or materially reactionary fashion firms.
LMX Unlimited’s work on several Lithuanian Council for Culture projects as part of the 17+1: One Belt One Road Cultural Infrastructure and Integrated Aesthetic Development Program has demonstrated a sensitivity and capacity required to meet the demands of global initiatives that interface with private firms. As a part of The Inflation Reduction Act, LMX Unlimited is confident its unique experience with allow it to help American firms navigate a transition from costly and wasteful affective labor across a constellation of small luxury ateliers.
T-shirt product samples are available for interested media.
Machine samples and demonstrations will begin Q1, but media tours of production facilities can be arranged as early as December.
