The European Union flag has been having a bit of a micro fashion moment. At London Fashion Week Men’s in January, British label Agi & Sam put the symbolic circle of 12 gold stars on a scarf and a jacket. For Vetements’s Euro-centric “Stereotypes” collection—which brought together the Gabber culture of Rotterdam, England’s chavs, and the region’s many tourists—there was a distressed sweater printed with the same design. Now, it has even prompted the emergence of Eurotic, a young, cult label that has turned the EU flag cameo into a direct political statement.
