Ben Shewry’s Attica Drops Killer Merch Line

Melbourne fine diner Attica, owned by Taranaki-born chef Ben Shewry, has recruited six of its talented Australian and New Zealand artist mates to design a range of merch, including T-shirts and tea towels, Jo Robin reports for online city guide, Broadsheet.

Among those who worked on the range, dubbed the Attica Artist Series, are prolific street artist Heesco; New Zealand-born Paul McNeil, who’s designed for the Beastie Boys, the Rolling Stones and surf brand Mambo; and Callum Preston, creator of a wildly popular ’90s-style milk bar installation, Robin writes.

“We’re looking forward to being able to send a little piece of Attica all over the world,” Shewry says.
