Ubiquitous Souvenir

The fashion world provides commentary on mass tourism

Implications - Clever fashion brands allude to the shared experience of mass tourism with faux souvenirs and editorials characterized by social cues that denote sightseeing. This commentary on the ubiquitous nature of the travel experience may also be meant as subtle criticism of the state of the industry. In highlighting the mundane nature of these mass-produced cultural experiences, brands are able to connect with consumers through authentic dialogue on globalization and unsustainable lifestyles.
