ShinyStyle loves: The Lazy Oaf

By Andrea Petrou on January 27th, 2011

By Emily Borrett.

We’re massive, massive fans of the illustration and design collective The Lazy Oaf. As an illustrator myself I’ve always been drawn to the wry humour and fun, vibrant prints that their clothes and jewellery feature, showing the rest of us boring old farts that it’s okay for design to be a bit silly and a bit fun. You’d have to be completely devoid of a sense of humour to not see their bold pop-culture kitsch sweatshirts or their “brain hats” and not smile.

Items such as slogan cotton shirts and printed sweatshirts have been huge on the high street for a while now – you don’t have to look much further than Topshop or Urban Outfitters in the spring to see that everyone wants a cool, original T-shirt to slob around in. But who wants the same shirt that everyone else is wearing? It’s far better to spread your wings where your wardrobes are concerned – and Lazy Oaf is definitely worth checking out, whether it’s online or in their store in Carnaby Street. If you’re looking for bold graphic prints and Fresh Prince-esque cool, then their clothes are for you.

Check out the gallery below to see our favourite pieces from the shop.

French designer Zadig & Voltaire sue Gap

By Andrea Thatcher on September 18th, 2007

Zadig%20%26%20Voltaire_Gap%20T-shirts.JPGWhat’s going on with all the lawsuits in the fashion industry, lately?? I’m not sure if this Gap shirt (right) is exactly the shirt in dispute, but it was from their European collection, and the only shirt I could find that was similar to Zadig & Voltaire’s Tunisien style (left). But even if there is a more closely matched style, I don’t understand how a designer can sue for “counterfeiting and unfair competition” of a T-shirt with a button-neck collar! It’s a T-shirt for crying out loud–I’ve seen a million like it since my wee days of shopping from the stroller. I can understand if it was some intricately designed gown that had the exact style, cut, color and fabric copied, but I think this is getting a little ridiculous. Just because you sell a T-shirt for 79 Euros (over $100!), you’re mad that someone is selling something similar for half the price (29 Euros or $40), which is what it’s actually worth. What do you think?
