Karl Andersson releases fashion line

For immediate release:

Avid magazine collector and publisher Karl Andersson today announced the release of his fashion line Vintage Pride.

Vintage Pride is a collection of vintage gay magazine logotypes printed on t-shirts in various colours.

– I want to celebrate the diversity of early gay liberation by bringing the logotypes of its gay press back to life, Andersson says.

– The rainbow had more colours in the 1970s, he adds.

Vintage Pride is still in the haute couture phase, meaning each t-shirt is custom made and sells for 100 euro. At the moment, the customer can choose from a selection of 12 logotypes – see them all here.

– The logotypes are the soundtrack of a forgotten era, Andersson concludes.

– That’s why I love them.

    This is brilliant, I love it 🙂 Hard to decide but I think my faves are COQ and Boys Intensiv. Will you add some Revolt titles? I don’t think that I ever saw their covers so I’m not sure if they had any outstanding typography. Piccolo would be cool even ‘tho that might be more of an outing than most other titles (I mean COQ had some other, less in-your-face mags too, right?), at least within the queer community :p

    You really are full of surprises. Two thumbs up! 🙂

    Hmm, if I could have one, I’d probably want the Beach Boy one, even though it’s probably the corniest logo of the buch.

    Glad you like it. 🙂

    I think some of the titles *are* from Revolt, Josh. Not sure though. I will publish some info about the magazines too, as I add more logotypes. This is only part one …

    Ah, I see. More research is needed on this field, that much is clear ;p
