Fall/Winter 2024 will be seen as a season where, from sweaters to outerwear and for every type of garment in-between, texture and surface interest was a top trend. Prints where they did appear tended to be on the loud side. In addition to the ubiquitous animal prints and menswear patterns, designers returned to using house monograms, logos and slogans in larger sizes than of late.

Tracing the Trend

In the US, branding on the outside of clothing began around 1887 when gold prospectors wore denim pants. The Levi Strauss company realized that not all of their customers could read but could come to stores asking for the goods with the “two horses” picture!

A few years later, in 1896, George Vuitton, son of Louis Vuitton, started using the interlocking LV letters to prevent counterfeiting of the company’s new line of travel trunks. 128 years later, Nicolas Ghesquière photo-printed images of the logoed trunks onto dresses.

Coco Chanel designed the interlocking C's in 1925 as a homage to a monastery in Aubazine, where she spent most of her childhood. She was said to have been inspired by the geometric patterns of stained-glass windows in the chapel at the monastery. Again, that same logo is used today, 100 years later.

Pelagia Kolotouros presented a FW24 collection for Lacoste, filled with references to the original brand. The tennis player René Lacoste, whose nickname was ‘The Alligator.’ founded the company in the 1920’s. The crocodile motif has appeared on the company’s clothing since 1933.

Using ostentatious logos and monograms, also known as 'logomania', came to the fore in the 1980s and reached its zenith in the early 2000s. While discrete logos and monograms have trended in recent seasons, for FW24, designers with legacy fashion companies often used prints and patterns with outré branding propositions. In some cases, trompe l'oeil designs were worked into the prints.

Logos and Monograms

Designers used monograms in repeat patterns, both large and small in size, along with classic renditions of brand logos.
