MOSCOW, August 11. /ITAR-TASS/. US movie star Mickey Rourke bought a T-shirt bearing a print of Russian President Vladimir Putin as a new collection of the item went on sale in Moscow on Monday, T-shirt designers said.
Rourke, visiting the capital at the invitation of the Russian Boxing Federation, chose a grey T-shirt showing Putin in a cap.
Anna Trifonova and Ivan Yershov, known as the Anyavanya design duo, said their collection was inspired by Russia's numerous victories on the international stage, such as the Sochi Olympics triumph, the world ice hockey championship and reunification with Crimea.
In early June, some 5,000 Putin T-shirts sold out in one day.
The collection has 15 T-shirt prints, including Putin wearing military camouflage with the slogan “The politest of people,” and Putin on horseback, with the slogan “They’re not gonna get us”.
Trifonova said Rourke was not their only star customer. "We often receive phone calls from secretaries of stars asking to send them a T-shirt of their choice," she said.
The duo plans to release new T-shirts for pariotic fashionistas in the autumn.
