Couture Caricatures


Whimsical children’s brand Talc recently updated their window displays with amusing caricatures of designers. Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Alber Elbaz and Marc Jacobs are just a few designers doodled into mini-mannequins. With edgy street wear collaborations, luxury brands and designers have become household names, so it’s no wonder the children’s market is coo coo for couture. We first spotted the trend at Pitti Bimbo with Marcona’s adorable line of “Super Designer” t-shirts with Karl Lagerfeld and Tom Ford rendered as comical super heroes. Talk about a way to introduce your budding fashionistas to the most important people in their world!
