Trend-spotting F / W 13.14 ; Type and Rebellion


The influence of Punk has been found in all areas of fashion, majorly due to the fact that the Metropolitan Museum of Art has chosen it as the theme for the yearly costume institute. There were a mix of different interpretations on the Fall runways — one being graphic / punk-esque slogan t-shirts. Whether with abstract letters spelling out in-your-face text – as Jeremy Scott’s ‘Rescue Me’ jumper — or a design that’s more subversive and sequined — Ashish presented a top reading ‘i’m having a shit day thanks’ — typed out tops are sure to be a major trend for the coming fall. It’s a great way to channel that punk attitude without feeling like you are donning a fancy dress costume, and these pieces can surely be conversation starters. Or, in the case of the aforementioned Ashish shirt, perhaps a conversation avoider —

Here are some more examples of rebelliously  inclined graphic t-shirts from the international runways ;
