Uh oh, the return of the logo

I’m feeling logo-mania in the ether. The Louis Vuitton Parnassea bag with the enormous LV is everywhere and Alexander Wang used his name as the pattern on many of the pieces in his show yesterday.

  • It’s those pesky ’80’s. everyone kept saying they were back…and this is the proof!

  • I say NO! It’s anyway soo difficult to find things withOUT logo. I am not a billboard or any other commercial space, sorry!

  • I prefer no logo at all. If there is a logo involved, I prefer that it be discreet. I once pried a “too large for my taste” metal Prada logo off a pair of boots.

  • Wearing or carrying a logo just seems so sad and needy……..

  • Although I rather like the LV on the bag above, I think the attempt to resurrect the logo as part of the design of an item will fail. That was a time where conspicuous consumption was appreciated. It isn’t now, and an article of clothing has to stand or fail on its own qualities. Consumers have grown up.

  • Hear, hear April. I think if we just ignore it for the Emperor’s New Clothes phenomenon that it is, IT will go away. Along with fluffy pink purses and (sorry Phoebe) mink slippers.
