Inspirational Graphics

In the 1980s everyone watched Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and dreamed of being a jet-setting yuppie. Everything from boots to jackets were given "travel patches" meant to evoke the stickers on Victorian era steamer trunks. Everything from T-shirts to ski pants got the travel treatment. At Kokorokoko we are deep into this trend and have a lot of awesome examples of "travel graphics". Like this denim jacket from Jordache:
It is awesome how it is talking about itself on the patch--"balance tailoring makes you look great"...THANKS! You get to wear an ad for the clothing you are already wearing!
Sometimes the graphics were not on patches but directly silk-screened on like this awesome "Club Adventure" bat-wing sleeve crop top with MATCHING PANTS! The guy in the parachute has MEMBERSHIP!! Collegiate fonts, major metropolitan areas, adventure, all of these things spell money$$
This cotton spandex bike onesie is emplasoned with a globe and just like the Jordache is total meta fashion!
...primary colors are so slimming!!
