TREND ALERT: BRIAN LICHTENBERG

ADORED by the likes of supermodels Cara Delevingne and Candice Swanepoel, pop stars Rihanna and Ciara and actresses Miley Cyrus and Ashley Benson; Brian Lichtenberg has a vast A-lister fan base for his urban collection of gimmicky apparel. The LA based designer has created slogans based on huge designer names such as Hermes (Homies), Balmain (Ballin) and Celine (Feline). Lichtenberg's play on words has spread globally with his witty fashion tees and sweatshirts along with baseball caps and beanies being snapped up worldwide. Big-name UK retailers such as Harvey Nichols now stock his edgy apparel as well as online retailers such as Net-A-Porter and online fashion boutiques such as Browns.

After discovering Lichtenberg's work I have found myself with a rather abominably long wish-list, one which stretches beyond my bank account. Whilst his pieces are made in LA, they are of course more expensive over here in the UK...exporting cost and all that Jazz, however they range from £34 for one of his knitted beanies to £100 for a sweater. Unless you want one of everything, then you are in trouble! ££££
