Skulls make a come­back in jew­ellery

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - With Des­mond Eddy

TEAR up the style­book this win­ter and mix clas­si­cal with con­tem­po­rary.

This sea­son skulls and black di­a­monds are in the spot­light, with brands like Lin­neys, Gucci and Alexan­der Mcqueen in­cor­po­rat­ing skulls into their de­signs.

Lin­neys cre­ative di­rec­tor Justin Lin­ney said the skull de­signs were not just for rock stars and mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ers.

“Celebri­ties such as Gigi and Bella Ha­did are wear­ing skull jew­ellery; these styles are tak­ing over,” Lin­ney said.

“Lin­neys has been man­u­fac­tur­ing jew­ellery for more than 40 years and re­cently cus­tomers are re­quest­ing state­ment de­signs such as black di­a­monds and skull jew­ellery.

“There has cer­tainly been a shift from sim­ple and un­der­stated to bold and cre­ative de­signs that stand out; es­pe­cially in win­ter when fash­ion is more prom­i­nent.”

He said music had been the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind the Lin­neys range.

“The sim­ple, un­der­stated de­signs orig­i­nated from clas­si­cal music, while the grungy skull de­signs came from rock music,” he said.

“I am in­spired by dif­fer­ent things around me such as the beach and pop­u­lar music.”

With rings, ear­rings, bracelets and cuff­links in the range, skull jew­ellery is avail­able for men and women.
