Designer Victor Wilde set out on a quest, to interview a wide range of people from all walks of life, the topic: what do you think about when you think about fashion? In true Wilde style, there was a twist, all interviewees were naked. The result of this soul-baring series is seen in Wilde's first foray into ready-to-wear with his collection LEGGOYOURLOGO, under the label WILDE by Bohemian Society.
Each piece in the collection has one distinctly calculated circle cut out of the garment. This "hole" is outlined in red and positioned where a logo might otherwise be placed. The resulting void bares some skin to the outside world, alluding to the concept that fashion is instigated by you, the wearer. Distinguishing the wearer as curator and exhibitor of their own personal art show calls them to action and challenges each to "Leggo Your Logo."
Known for his avant garde designs, Wilde's foray into ready-to-wear is a welcome addition for many, making his unique creations available to the masses. His thought-provoking study on the role fashion plays in our lives isn't all hype. Wilde has committed to matching each purchase from this collection by personally donating a piece of clothing to a person in need on Los Angeles' Skid Row, which is located one block from his studio, citing the rationale that "We can’t always be naked."
