Laura Weir from Drapers Record tells us that Ironic (sorry, Iconic) brand Biba’s main licencee Biba International has gone into administration. Is PSFK surprised? Here’s a snapshot of what we wrote two years ago when they relaunched:

Zietgeist is a hard thing to re-capture, some things should just be let be.
