In the spirit of February's association with St. Valentine this month's instalment of Fashion Souvenirs has a romantic theme. While variations of Milton Glaser's iconic logo I Heart NY are perennially popular, from Paris to Wigan, Brighton to Malta, romantic connotations are often bound up in the mystery of places themselves. Who could resist the romantic connotations of islands like Guernsey or Madeira?
