    I'm looking for some collections where the protagonist is the typography, for example this one of Viktor & Rolf called No (Ready to wear F/W 2008-09)

    I want to see more like this...thanks

    Thanks but I'm not looking exactly for logotypes . I want to see how fashion designers work with typography in clothes like viktor & rolf (they worked with 3D and 2D typography, and in makeup also)

    Thanks Givenchyhomme, it looks very interesting ;-). Yes, you understood what I wanted. I feel so glad when fashion meets with typography.

    Katherine Hamnett remains the queen with the slogan t-shirts she introduced in the early 80ies... which Henry Holland blatantly copied for his own t-shirt line.

    I have found this nice shirt of John Lawrence Sullivan, I think It was designed by Arashi Yanagawa. It seems like a Trajan style. I love it!

    Moschino does a nice play of words/wording in some of their designs ... like clothes with the word "LOGO" going all over it .. couldnt find one right now but found this on the internet

    Yes, It's interesting also when brands play with its logotypes in clothes and accesories

    In here I found the same concept but with Fendi bags

    Thank you! jess93 , that's great!, and of course this is the right thread to post this type of things because I wanted to know more stuff like this about how fashion designers are innovating with typography in their clothes or accesories :wink:. Helvetica is used in everywhere, there's a film about this typeface and its uses but I don't know if the movie included this t-shirt.
    have a nice weekend
