If a picture is worth a thousand words, designers are feeling downright verbose these days.
New menswear collections are arriving at Barneys New York by the day, and a clear trend is emerging: graphic designs have cropped up on everything from tees to pants to shoes.
And just in case you’re thinking it: These are not the splashy logo-laden looks of the ’90s. From Givenchy‘s dobermans and Christopher Kane‘s Frankenstein to more poppy iterations by Saturdays Surf NYC and Rag & Bone, these graphic flourishes are artful, witty and, above all, fashion-forward.
