Loud logos and slogans have made a timely comeback to fashion. Compared to the logo-mania of the ’80s and ’90s, the aim today is less about status-seeking and more about self-expression—with an inescapable political twist. Dior and Stella aside, a conscious young champion of bold messaging to watch is London-based VON SONO. With charged capital letters at its core, the artisan label uses their compact collections as a means to “start a conversation and have a dialogue, as it is our world and our future.” Unwilling to remain quiet spectators of the troubled fashion game, the label’s unisex apparel is a shout-out to fairness, an uncompromised ethos which is reflected throughout their supply chain. “The world is changing and it will take a lot of speaking out to find harmony again”, voices VON SONO with their “ACTIVISM” catch phrase. This season, brands with sartorial messages like these will ultimately have the final say.
