Skulls? This trend went over my head
This past winter, I stopped at Nordstrom’s to buy a scarf. I found a lovely one, chocolate cashmere with a tiny cream repeating pattern of some sort. When I squinted and looked closer, I was surprised to see little cream skulls; cute, right? Or no? I wasn’t sure, so I passed on the scarf.
I’d seen skulls used a bit in the high-end design magazines, but typically in the apartments of eccentric (and rich) rockers and artists. I was completely unaware that the macabre image had jumped the fence and escaped into the mainstream until I saw all the skull-related products (and many in the clearance bin) at Z Gallerie. And you know what that means? 10-4 skull trend. Over and out.
My friend, Janis, who’s not a design buff, looked at me like I was crazy. “Where have you been?,” she asked incredulously. “Skulls are everywhere.”
What trends have passed you by completely? And did you notice skulls? Or is Janis a bit crazy maybe?
