When I interned for a British designer my senior year of college, we planned a major, major, party. The ridiculously gorgeous event planner showed up wearing a gray YSL sweatshirt with a giant navy blue logo - it was the one time wearing a logo appealed to me. There's something so iconic and almost graceful about the YSL logo but there's something morbid about this t-shirt designed by artist Brian Lichtenberg. It sells on Blood is the New Black - or it did before it sold out. Lichtenberg's woven his own RIP label to mirror Yves' and done both a black on white and white on black version. We get that it's in tribute to the man but the tribute lacks taste. Does it sit well with you? And more importantly, would you actually wear it?
