Ever since emojis invaded that Preview double cover last July 2015 with Nicole Warne and Kim Jones, the visual lexicons have gotten bigger and bigger—and we do mean it quite literally. From tiny digital emotions on our smart phones, they are now enlarged as patches on jackets, shoes, even taking on the form of tiny leather accessories and purses. There’s just no denying their popularity and how they instantly add character to any item. We’ve seen them on the clothing of celebrity style icons like Gwen Stefani and Gigi Hadid, as well as high end labels like Versace and retail favorites like Bershka. Hey, even Kim K. couldn’t help but make her own set called Kimojis. Clearly these punchy, expressive icons are taking over the fashion world.
