Wherever you are just a lover of flora or trying to place a specific fashion brand with a flower as a logo, this article is for you.
Firstly lets do a brief clarification. Most clothing brands have a range of logos, monograms, symbols and emblems, or combinations that make them instantly globally recognized.
They would be defined as:
Logo: Using typographic font of the brand name, as seen on marketing material and the website
Lettermark/Monogram: Initials or acronyms of the brand such as Coco Chanel’s interlocking C’s
Pictorial/Iconic: A simple, graphic image or symbol to represent a brand or company such as Versace’s Medusa, the Adidas 3 stripes or Nikes swoosh.
Emblem: Typically a traditional and detailed design, often incorporating text within a shape or symbol. A good example is Polo Ralph Lauren who use a polo player on horseback.
Motif: A dominant, recurring idea, decorative image or design, especially a repeated one forming a pattern.
Anyway, on to our list of clothing brands who use flowers as logo’s or emblems. There are many fashion houses that incorporate floral motifs in their designs, but these are the likely candidates.
Going out on a limb here. If you are looking for a brand who use a flower emblem in the UK, then it’s likely to be Ted Baker. While the brand use a variety of emblems on their apparel, their use of the Magnolia flower is synonymous with affordable quiet luxury.
Often mistaken for a rose, the Magnolia edit shows the true origins and it is found on Men’s t-shirts, Polo shirts and on Women’s handbags and much more.
Ted Baker is a British clothing and fashion company founded by Ray Kelvin in 1988, and offers clothing, footwear, accessories, and fragrances for both men and women.
The UK streetwear brand don’t appear to be trading anymore, but chances are you’ve seen Rose London‘s flower logo on celebs in the past. They’ve been around since 2014 and despite owner changes, the rose bloom stayed in both the logo and as the motif on all garments.
If you are in the USA, then you might be looking for Soul Flower, a clothing and lifestyle brand based in the United States. They specialize in creating eco-friendly and socially responsible clothing and accessories for men, women, and children. The brand focuses on promoting positive messages, self-expression, and sustainability through their products.
And it makes sense. Using a flower in a apparel brand logo does resonate with green fashion ideology. The suggestion of natural organic materials and love for the earth is a given.
