Recognisable status pieces are back, and with them a desire for logos. We no longer wish for rebellious individualism, instead preferring to show off our inclusion in fashion communities.

Across the spring/summer ’14 catwalks, the logo was abundant. Marc Jacobs’s startlingly beautiful swan song at Louis Vuitton had Edie Campbell naked but for hand-painted Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse graffiti covering her lithe body. Similarly for Carol Lim and Humberto Leon at Kenzo, Missoni, Alexander Wang, and DKNY.
