Well Said

     Let your clothes and accessories do the talking. A lot can be said with a simple word or phrase, so why not make a statement by wearing one? From Sophia Webster's silly speech bubble clutches to Rodarte's pun-filled tees, several designers are getting daring with their diction. 
     Despite the many word-filled fashions, I'll always consider Ed Ruscha to be the master designer of wordplay. In his paintings, Ruscha uses striking typefaces, simple compositions and impeccable color palettes to highlight phrases that are perfectly well-said. I'd love a screen-printed tee with one of his clever sayings!
