6/2/13 – Recent Online Discovery leads to more skull Printed T-Shirts, Dresses and other Visual Merchandise.
A few weeks ago, I discovered a new Facebook page that sells a range of skull printed t-shirts, dresses, skirts and other fashion accessories. Sugar Skulls is an online store that often features images and photographs of their recent collections; the updates do make my Facebook rather interesting. The site also features a range of skull printed dresses and skirts; the colourful patterns and designs are visually interesting and they also remind me of tattoo art. The dresses feature a vintage style, something you would normally see from the 1950’s; I am just in love with all the different designs, they are just so stylish!
Sugar Skulls also sells skull printed t-shirts in men’s sizes, the level of detail is just incredible! Almost every single photograph features a skull; it’s interesting to see how the skull is used in fashion, advertising and product design. In a way the skull has become a fashion accessory; I don’t normally think about death when i’m wearing all my skull printed t-shirts; it’s become another commodity, another necessity just like the new ipad or the latest xbox game.
There isn’t a great deal of information about the company on the website; I’m assuming the skull has been used as product branding, who can blame them really, the skull does make a fantastic logo! I have also noticed the site also features a range of products and fashion accessories that are inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead and the sugar skulls that also feature some fantastic patterns and illustrations. If you are interested in skulls, tattoo art and vintage style clothing, I would recommend viewing the Sugar Skulls Facebook Page.
