So stock image fashion is now a thing and…we kind of like it

Let’s be real: Stock photos are some of the most bizarre, hilarious things we’ve ever seen.

Whether they feature truly incredible photos of cats, revolutionary takes on sex, or just some of our favorite celebrities getting those dollars back in the day, we’re bound to find something that makes us LOL when looking through the archives.

But Adobe wants us to do more than just laugh (and comb through a thousand images for that one normal image we can actually use for work) when we’re dealing with stock photos.

They want us to wear them.


Thanks to Time, we know that Adobe Stock is launching their own line of stock photography inspired fashion.

And honestly? These pieces totally speak to us — especially this one.


"Remember the days when stock photo libraries were filled to the rim with business clichés? Remember the days when you were spending hours on the stock photo websites? It's time to leave those days and the obsolete workflow of yesterday behind," writes Adobe on their Adobe Spark campaign site.

Enter Adobe Stock Apparel, “a limited edition clothing line giving a salute to the most infamous stock images creatives love to hate, such as Laughing woman eating healthy vegetable salad and Firm handshake between business associates.

"Turning [classic stock photos] into a limited edition clothing line is our way to salute them and an attempt to create something disruptive and unconventional in the genre," explained Oskar Hellqvist, the creative director for Abby Priest, the advertising agency Adobe teamed up with for the concept. "The creative community already shares the knowledge and power/humour that is embedded in these images. Hopefully it’s something that they will enjoy and wear."


So how do you snag these shirts for yourself?

Sign up! Enterprise customers who register now for an Adobe Stock trial can exclusively order their apparel free of charge (and snag a bonus 50 free photos — double win).

It doesn’t seem like the clothing will be widely available otherwise (boo!), but we know that we’ll be keeping our eyes out just in case. After all, as regular users of stock photography (and women who laugh while eating our salads — doesn’t everyone?), we need this shirt.
