I found this too funny to not post about! Link and text of article on a new celebrity trend below from shefinds.com below.

"We admit, the fashion industry tends to take itself a little too seriously. Sometimes it needs a little poking fun of to knock it down a notch. Enter: street wear designers like Brian Lichtenberg, The Cut and Conflict of Interest. They’ve had us laughing out loud with their tees and sweatshirts that have a little fun with high-end designer names. For instance: Hermés becomes Homiés; Comme Des Garcons is Comme Des ****down; and Céline is Féline (meow!). Celebs like Miley Cyrus and Khloe Kardashian have been spotted in the Homiés version – superfan Miley has worn hers multiple times – and word of mouth has this trend taking off. We wonder what they will come up with next! If you like getting a little irreverent with your fashion, like we do, click through the slideshow to shop these hilarious pieces."

I actually like some of their tops. My favorite is Bodega Vendetta. :roflmfao: What are your thoughts? Is anyone seriously offended by this?

I like these tops. I like both the Feline and Homies version for a laugh. I have a Petals & Peacocks CC fake sweatshirt that I wear every once in a while (I must admit it is super comfy)!! I am not offended at all...they are just making light/light hearted!!! Picture from my IG for reference....

I remember seeing another brand, 5Preview, that did a similar sort of take on a lot of high-end brands as well and is pretty popular in Europe (or at least was).

The Homies one is definitely cute/fun, although I don't know if I'm comfortable enough with my "gangsta" side to wear it. Ahem.

I just receceived the homies sweatshirt from revolve and can't wait to wear it. I think its a fun shirt and it feels very soft inside and I guess its pretty comfortable to wear.

I wouldn't wear them, but I do think they are funny. And glamourbag I like your fake Chanel tee, especially paired with your other luxe accessories.
