Let's get emojional
By Gavin Jewkes, 16 September 2014
Using words to communicate is, like, super boring. That’s why we considered writing this article using Instagram images and emojis only… until we realised it was too difficult (and probably a bit stupid and annoying to read – insert sad smiley here).
But others have had more luck harnessing the communicative power of the emoji: for instance, ASOS Marketplace boutique owner Philip Normal, whose T-shirts offer a 2014 twist on the conventional slogan tee.
Wear your feelings on your sleeve, quite literally, by pulling on this smiley-splattered number, which features all your favourite emojis including 'shedding a single tear' and 'glowing with smugness'. For the sassier satorialists among you, there’s also a print featuring the flamenco dancer with attitude and the jazz-steppin’ twins. Pictographic perfection.
Wear yours with an Apple Watch and/or Google Glass to really achieve that social-media-addict vibe. Or dress it down in a pair of skinny jeans and some Converse – we don't mind.
