We love designer fashion. We even love their logos. But when a product is covered entirely with the designer logos it reminds us of the country music comedy singing star “Minnie Pearl” who used to wear all her clothes and hats with the price tags still attached. When the entire item is covered with the designer logo we think it looks like crap. Sorry Louis Vuitton but you are the worst offender, followed closely behind by Gucci. At one time there was even a Cadillac series covered in Gucci logos and there are plenty of custom Rolls Royces covered in Vuitton logos. Excuse us, but that kind of excessive designer self-promotion is a cause to run for the nearest barf bag. Oh, but wait. The designers didn’t necessarily do this.

A study of the work of several other fashion designers records how fashion changed throughout the decade.
