typedressing

Henry Holland's Roxy Skiwear capsule collection, 2010
The art of arranging types and printing from them as you may 
remember dates back to 1455 when Johannes Gutenberg first 
printed in Mainz, Germany, using movable type and a press 
the book which later became known as the Gutenberg Bible.

Typefaces have a lot to do with fashion and its evolution,
just think of the pre-photographic era in which designers
created inventive and highly decorated letterforms as an
essential part of style illustrations or the modern typefaces
used for fashion magazines headers and brands' logotypes.
Sometimes you may find typographic compositions even on
clothes, here's a limited selection for all type lovers I really
enjoyed myself collecting up.
