When news broke this morning that Yves Saint Laurent, would indeed be dropping the “Yves” to become Saint Laurent Paris, we have to say we were pretty stunned. And that got us thinking: What if other storied brands followed YSL’s suit, and ‘updated’ their brand image?
Apparently we weren’t the only ones wondering. Henry Holland tweeted “Changing the name House of Holland to House of Ramsbottom #everybodysdoingit #YSL.”
Ok, so maybe not everybody’s doing it (Henry was totally joking, guys! We think). Still, we took the liberty of updating the logos of some of our favorite designers in ways that we thought could better represent their brands–or in ways that just tickled our funny bone. Hey, change can be a good thing! Plus, everyone needs a little makeover now and then, right?
