The tendency of showing off designer’s logos is not over yet and is not even up to us journalists to put an end to it. The boom of displaying the initials of a brand printed all over accessories and fabrics begun in the mid 90s. As the time went by that wave slowly faded away, but still counts a large a mount of followers. This week’s photo is from an editorial I realized at that time, imagining a self-obsessed haute-couture man covered up in designer pieces from head to toe.Without any false modesty, I can state that considering how many men nowadays are regularly going to the SPA, I was being ahead of our time.The problem arises when you mix and match to many logos at the same time: the combination of this kind of pieces other than being vulgar it may clashes with one’s personality, or worst, it might erase it. The result can also be grotesque. We should always consider our body feautures and personality and remember that is not really necessary to show off in order to be admired.
