I’m personally not a fan of t-shirts with witty/funny slogans.  Those ‘Team Angelina/Aniston’ t-shirts? Horrible.  T-shirts emblazoned with things like ‘I’m a Bitch’ or anything similar don’t impress me at all and really says a lot about the person wearing it!

Coinciding with fashion week however, House of Holland have come up with a collection of Fashion Groupies t-shirts which I think are going to be a big hit with the London fashion pack who like their clothes a bit ironic.  With slogans like ‘Cause me pain, Hedi Slimane’ and ‘Do me daily, Christopher Baily’, they’re not really for the wallflowers of the world.  As for me, I wouldn’t wear one out but seeing the Ageness Deyn playing up in them does make me chuckle. 

Giles Deacon wore the Gareth Pugh shirt when he walked out onto the catwalk at his S/S07 show last night.  I’m waiting for a cute picture of the lot of them wearing each other’s shirts to surface any day now.  I’m only sorry Roland Mouret didn’t get a shirt either as Mouret, Deacon and Bailey are often seen hanging out together in London.

    haha, i love the gareth pugh one! i don’t know if you’ve seen it, but my current hate is the one from dorothy perkins (i think) that says something like:
    rev-
    olu-
    tion
    in big black letters on a yellow t-shirt.

    I love them, they’re fun. They would attract a bit more attention than I would want, I think, the way shirts with words tend to do.

    Love these. I like the Chris Bailey one best (the designer for Burberry Prorsum….not the guy from Batman Begins…) but i’m not sure I could walk around in a shirt that said ‘DO ME DAILY’ in neon letters

    DAMN DOVER STREET MARKET!
    i need one of those tee shirts, they are hilarious and if i wore them around school it would be like a little private joke between me and myself because no one else here would get it
    ahhhhh, it’s really too bad they aren’t selling in the states (the giles deacon one is just sublime!)

    Of course if you were really a fashion groupie girl you’d know that Bailey lives with his male partner. Seems a bit desperate.

  20. What are my choices in the fashion industry other then a fashion designer, which I wish I could be but I have no clue on how to sew or draw. Where can I start and work my way up to……Please help! I am 20 and I want to get on the get go. I am not in a fashion school or anything. Because I wanted to be a lawyer but I noticed that I really want to be in the fashion world. I love fashion and I am always into the new fashion.

  21. Nice post. I’ve been trying to catch up on some of the events and happenings since I landed on the island. Are you sure about Visser not getting a lot of votes.
    What is your footnote a reference to? The asterisk is missing from the main body of the posting.

  22. You are too great a writer man. I am in love with all your articles and wait for them to appear. But, this article of all that you have written until now is my personal favorite. I shall surely have the same article forwarded ahead and spread the information to one and all.
