A cerebral meditation on why deathmotifs in clothing look badass: “Ever since pirates first sailed under the skull and crossbones, it has been associated with death. Now, this morbid symbol flies again in the upcoming fashion season.” Link to Sleek Magazine item. Image: a model shows off a design from Gori de Palma’s 2006-2007 collection. (Thanks, Susannah Breslin!)

Update: Whoah, there’s a weird story behind the t-shirt design shown here. That thing inside the rib cage is a fetus, made for a princess. Link (Thanks, Violet Blue!)
