Michael Beirut’s Politically Neutral Lapel Pin

Politics. While they may frustrate my to no end, they intrigue me even more. So when I came across this new lapel pin by Michael Beirut, a collaboration between he and Men’s Vogue, I was quite excited, as it was designed to be politically neutral, something we can all appreciate. With the pins design, Beirut “tried to defamiliarize a very familiar configuration of letters”, and it’s unique shape is inspired by the country’s history as a melting pot.

I think this is a really beautiful piece of work and is extremely timeless feeling, something I’ve found is really important to me lately. There are only 5,000 made and they go for $10 a piece, so grab one while you can, I already did.

    I love the subliminal (or not so) $ sign. I hope they infiltrate lapel pins all over Washington!

    Ironic or earnest dollar sign worked in there?
