80 Textual Fashion Examples

From Conceptual Poetry Runways to Cosmetic Lettering Campaigns

— September 4, 2014 — Fashion
From conceptual runway shows to eye-catching statement tees, these textual fashion examples adorn clothing items with expressive logos and bold lettering. The graphic tee is often known for one of two things, either an eye-catching image or a witty message that is composed of letters.

While some labels opt for a subtle showcase of textual accents, others aim to push boundaries with their designs and choose to experiment with the technique in a more expressive and exaggerated way.

A standout from this list includes designer Juun J's Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The urban menswear line highlights a range of textual fashions that are adorned with handwritten letter prints. These pieces are graphic and sentimental in their design, referencing poetry and poignant written works.
