FYI: Sartorial Joke Tees

It may or may not have started with the “Céline” logo t-shirt, but either way, sartorial joke t-shirts are here, there and most definitely, everywhere. Sigh. Hermes Homies, Céline Feline, Balmain Ballin’ (just to name a few), have blown up the fronts of t-shirts in recent months. Though they are fun and witty, they do have a downside…and that, my friends, is a very prominent expiration date. The minute one comes out, you have a certain allotted amount of time to wear it once or twice before everyone else gets it. And when the trend (inevitably) spreads like the plague, you have to throw it out. Because, well, no one likes something once everyone else has it right? Right. read more…

FYI: Designer's Random Object Collections

Sometimes, designers decide to take a walk on the wild side – and by wild side I mean…making something other than things meant to clothe human bodies.

Your Comprehensive Guide To Pronouncing Designer Names

If fashion wasn’t already one of the most intricate areas of art (a tall, but deserved, order), it’s been further complicated throughout history by its phonetics. Design words – from ombré to décolletage, haute to ruching – and the emergence of new, exotic designer names – have been mangled by even Vogue’s most faithful follower. We’ve all had one of those read-it-but-never-once-said-it words touch our tongue leaving us bruised and broken, and vowing to silence rather than relive the horror of pronouncing Prabal Gurung (prub-le ger-rung) in public ever again. Crack open your schoolbook kids, because it’s time to brush up on the ABC’s of fashion designer diction. read more…
