A-Style is a brand of casual clothing and accessories, which was founded in Italy in 2001. The company is engaged in the production and sale of T-shirts, polo shirts, and motorcycle helmets. It gained popularity thanks to the successful idea of the brand’s logo, presented at Milan Fashion Week in 2003.

Meaning and history

Even though this fashion brand was established at the end of the 1990s, the A-Style became popular only several years after; when the company’s founder, Marco Bruns, introduced a provocative logo during the Milan Fashion Week in 2003.

In 1999, the logo was printed by Marco Bruns on yellow stickers that were pasted by him on traffic light poles in the city of Milan. This action would prove to be an effective very low-cost marketing operation. In the early 2000s, the logo turned into a trademark and started being printed on branded T-shirts and sweatshirts.

A-Style was a rare case in which the brand was born and became popular long before the product it identified. Thanks to the original and innovative marketing campaigns designed by Marco Bruns, the brand quickly became popular not only in Italy but all over the globe. However, A-Style could not handle the growing competition and ceased all operations in 2015.
