Skull prints have become increasingly more popular and prominent, but none are as famous or as synonymous with sartorial elegance as Alexander McQueen’s, which has now been redesigned for a T-Shirt that will blow any Ed Hardy enthusiast out of the water.
The Camouflage Skull T-shirt re-imagines McQueen’s traditional crania in favour of a more disjointed style, with features emphasised by patches of forest coloured satin. While my hints to Ed Hardy may worry you (and justifiably so) the silvery outline that picks out the details of the skull provide a punchy and clear – yet typically rather elegant – print. Against the contrasting deep black of the rest of the shirt, this bold print provides the perfect touch of flamboyance whilst remaining purely stylish.
The plain material of this piece means it has huge versatility – but keep it with muted tones in order to accentuate the bold skull print. With black trousers, boots and a vintage camouflage worker jacket you can effortlessly pattern match whilst creating a standout, contrasting look.
This piece stays true to a well-established motif, while offering a distinctive twist which hits the key camouflage patterning trend that features so heavily in SS12.
