Old Skull

when everybody thought the skull and crossbones mania had been left in the past, and you all had hidden and denied your skelleton crush, there comes the $ 100 million man and makes you think to give it a second chance. after being the symbol of 2006 hipster summer, the skull has been re-edited by one of the greats of the contemporary art. the man who makes the tate museum to buy him a shark, the man who makes colored spots pictures, the man of the pills hanging in the zillionares walls and the man of the fucking diamond skull. yeah! damien hirst now has a clothing line. well in theory it's not his, but it does have his name tagged on it. last weekend the levi's factory x unveiled its collaboration with the british artist, and guess what? there were some skulls. skulls in tees, skulls in pendants, skulls in pants, skulls everywhere. i must admit i'm not into the skully thingy anymore, however i liked some of the old school looks with a little bit sixities hip: the zippery jeans, the hats (damn i look awful in hats), the wayfarers (the look that next year we all will be hiding) and some of the jackets. well the good news are that they don't cost $ 100 million like the infamous "masterpiece", but about $ 100. So those are affordable, wearable and collectible items. it's like wearing cheap art, ain't?
c'mon bitches support the richer!
