  • This is really clever, I love their work

    Dale Winton says:
  • Reallly cool work! design brasileiro bom!

    juan otoya / bom senso coletivo says:
  • Yes! Now I’m waiting of a shirt with the Fjällräven fox…

    irmela says:
  • Love it! As always, so simple, so effective!

    louisa says:
  • Brazilians are very creative best ever

    dym says:
  • Ridiculous! If anyone wanted ever to show off a label, that’s the most over the top way to do it.
    Wonder how much they sell for.

    VZ says:
  • eww! i’m sorry, why would you pay money for that?!

    dkw says:
  • they should be paying me to wear it.

    alecu says:
  • Logo frenzy. Totally ridiculous. I like.

    Snidely Whiplash says:
  • it looks like they’re covered in green cockroaches. i agree using more logos is fun and could work really well if only they didn’t make it so haphazard

    jahny.b says:
  • No me gustan las formas de sus grupos, pero es increible l aidea de partir desde la raiz. Estaria bueno haber probado unas texturas diferentes como parte de la linea.

    rare says:
  • How do you WASH them?!?

    iheartwood.com says:
  • $ 7,500.00, crazy! who is gonna pay for that? one stain and its ruined! oi! pity, like campana bro’s but this concept of collage is overdone now… moving on…

    ... says:
  • well, i can imagine not everyone would love this idea but in my opinion it’s a masterpiece!

    he-rmes says:
  • now…where to add the hook?

    lanvy says:
  • looking so original.

    devil | m says:
  • AWESOME!!!!

    Aldo Gnz says:
  • hate it.

    karen says:
  • Love it or leave it! Those who do not like it do not have to buy, but I’d think there would be a lot of people interested. If you have nothing good to say you should keep your mouth shut. Most the people who work as critics are poor professionals!

    n7design says:
  • piece of shit!!

    If they just lnew more about the brand..they wouldnt have done that…some times big brands make mistakes…give unlimited budget or ideas to a designer which could basically ruin the brand…this is discusting and has no taste….

    brasil says:
  • ?

    cashmygold says:
  • The shirt design would be better with an open collar
    design or no collar at all. And,the feel of the the
    embroidered logo will itch some people to death,
    (you will have to wear over an undershirt).
    Otherwise a very interesting concept.
    The Brazilian women have been making very
    nice embroidery for many years.

    j.s. says:
  • beautifull to see, ridiculous to wear
