The ‘original’ DIY copycat Chanel t-shirt debuted barely over a month ago on the blog, ucameoutofastrobe and already there have been innumerable copycats sprouting up all over the web. This is possibly the most redundant trend I’ve seen in a while, I mean, seriously, a copy of a copy of a non-existent original? It’s not that it looks bad, its just that I’ve been trying to tell myself that fashion really isn’t all about the logos and the symbols – that it’s about something less superficial and then this comes along and shatters my faith once again. I mean, I confess that the ‘irony’ of the first DIY shirt was somewhat amusing even though ironic t-shirts are for hipsters, but all of the subsequent ones are just.. so… well, fucking redundant.
