Libertine for Target hit the web yesterday, and with it came the realization that skulls are still here. There were the original high fashion skeletons from Galliano and Lucien Pellat-Finet. There were the McQueen scarves co-opted by Urban Outfitters and still worn everywhere (this weekend I reasoned I couldn't throw mine away, so instead I used it as a beach blouse). And then there came the inevitable Sunday Styles story, the Damien Hirst diamond sculpture, the plates from Thomas Paul, the Cheap Monday pop-up store, and everything from Insight. But despite complaints, scoffs, and annoying bedazzled skulls worn on annoying bejeweled MTV stars, the trend still hasn't gone - in fact, it's still going. The kicker: It's the fad about death that's refusing to die.
