Portraying famous fashion designers as retro logos is one the latest personal project of Cebu-based graphic designer and artist Chad Manzo. Titled as The Sartorial Zone (An homage to The Twilight Zone, a sci-fi show originally aired in the 1959-1964, which also refers to a so-called fifth dimension), the project is inspired by the logos that he remembers from growing up in the 90s. The artist found a way to connect his love for fashion and his penchant for 90s nostalgia (especially cartoons and video games) thus birthing the Sartorial Zone. Releasing the first three artworks from the project, he portrays Tom Ford and Jerry Lorenzo as (yep you guessed it) Tom and Jerry, Gosha Rubchinskiy is portrayed as the He-Man logo, and Yohji Yamamoto as the Sesame Street logo (which is not exactly cartoons, but still falls under the retro and childhood nostalgia category). If you’re familiar with both the fashion designers and the logos used, then you’ll see how clever and creative the artist is.
