WEB ROUNDUP: THE FIRST FASHION LOGO, DID THE RENAISSANCE INVENT FASHION, FASHION PRESERVATION...

We've stumbled upon some pretty interesting fashion history reads online this week. From the first fashion logo to the future of clothing preservation, here's a look at what's not to be missed on the web. 

We were surprised to learn that the first fashion brand to feature a visible emblem or logo was Lacoste- read all about the history behind the iconic crocodile logo here. We also think you would appreciate illustrator Mike Frederique's clever logo interpretations (example pictured above) here.

While scrolling though our twitter feed, we couldn't help but click on tweet-link from www.theappendix.net that read Did the Renaissaince Invent Fashion? Read Benjamin Breen's article here to learn more.

A new style site that's been added to our bookmark bar is www.notjustalabel.com. The fashion site offers refreshing and frequent content about contemporary fashion beyond product plugs. A recent post we really enjoyed was a in-depth interview with fashion archivists and historians about the changing future of fashion preservation. Read here.
