What’s better than a designer logo tee? A witty graphic t-shirt that parodies a designer logo tee. Designer Brian Lichtenberg sparked a movement where high fashion brand logos are reimagined with clever sayings.
Hermes was parodied as Homies, Celine became Feline and even Saint Laurent got the witty treatment. The affordable tees show that you’re fashion-savvy with a sharp sense of humor to match. What’s not to love about them?
Some designers, like Hedi Slimane of Saint Laurent, are not impressed. Legal experts argue that parodied designers could be sue for breech of constitutional law, free-speech issues, intellectual property law, and a general overlay of business and commercial law according to WWD.
What does that mean for the rest of us? Pick the parody tees up quickly before they’re pulled out the stores. Shop our top picks in the slideshow.
