Say it with a T-shirt: Logo mania


The humble T-shirt, the emblem of the 90’s is back along with the 90’s mania for logos and it takes you from runway to street style to smart outfits with a twist. From Maria Grazia Chiuri’s statement on Feminism (read all about the iconic T-shirt We should all be Feminists and Adichi’s speech and book here) to The Blonde Salad’s logo T-shirt, more and more designers are choosing bold statements engraved on T-shirts or just ordinary emblems [like McDonalds] in an ironic twist on fashion and mass consumerism.


This kind of irony has been an art trend [think Cambell soups], and art and fashion are much more connected now.

Millennials are a generation who is trying to find ways to express their disdain for mass culture not by opting out of it but by abandoning themselves to it entirely a kind of sarcasm or wink to mass production in fashion and design.

It doesn’t harm designers who want to reach a completely different audience and demographic that has little to do with luxury fashion.
