The collection will be released in time for Record Store Day.

Danish headphone brand AIAIAI has enlisted veteran designer Trevor Jackson to curate a T-shirt collection paying tribute to record stores that have closed their doors in recent years.

Six designers from London, Paris, Tokyo, New York, Berlin and Copenhagen have contributed designs commemorating iconic shuttered record stores, including Groove Records, Salinas, Cisco, Kim’s Music & Video, Pinky and Street Dance Records. Check out the designs below.

“I spent a large part of my youth in a the basement of record stores”, explains Jackson, “obsessively digging through racks of vinyl learning as much about design as I did record labels, writers, musicians, producers & engineers.”

The proceeds from the T-shirt sales will go towards establishing the RPM Foundation by AIAIAI, a fund for artists and musicians and their creative projects.
