The new statement piece of the season is the effortlessly chic streetwear apparel that provides witty commentary on fashion’s iconic brands. This new trend is comedic streetwear- a mix of high and low fashion. This trend parodies some of the most famous brands in the industry including: Bucci instead of Gucci, Homiés instead of Hermes, Ballin’ instead of Balmain and Féline instead of Celine, creating new simple but hilarious logos of the original brands.
Streetwear brands have emigrated into mainstream culture through their creation of these new t-shirts that offer a unique and satirical wordplay of high fashion designers. These iconic brands represent the kings and queens of the fashion hierarchy, creating and dictating trends each season. Yet, what we see now is the emergence of the streetwear market. Street designers are ingesting these high fashion brands and create their own “street” take of these brands, offering a creative artistic wordplay of such brands.
This new fashion statement offers a fun alternative to wearing the real thing, mixing high and low fashion culture to create statement pieces that the fashion community is eating up. Instead of rejecting this satirical form of fashion, fashionistas, celebrities and models love these designer spoofs. How can you not laugh and fall in love with these quirky and original designs?
What are your thoughts on this new fashion statement? Is it a form of flattery or is it a slap in the face to these historic brands?
Personally, I can’t wait to get my hands on a Féline shirt to wear around the town. These shirts are the perfect mix of fashion and laid back cool to rock every day. Fashion is meant to be fun and these t-shirts embody this perfectly. Join in on this new trend and check out Brian Lichtenberg’s creations. So many options which will you choose?
