Wrap your mind around wrapping a skull around your wrist

As the legendary designer has been known to do in the past, Alexander McQueen is again bringing it with his signature skull motif. This time, it is a simple single-braided skull bracelet. Basic, with the expected touch of the gothic, the brass-cast skull is set a braided strap of 100$ Italian leather. Available for $290 in either brown […]


Chics in Design is a Hong Kong-based design house that has come with a specific, limited-color-palette knitting pattern for a distinctive look to their household furnishings. Priding themselves on being a “crazy, dreamy but happy bunch of people,” why wouldn’t they construct a human skull that you can open up and sit on? Now you can read the morning […]

"The Longer You Last" skull-cast series from Hedi Xandt

Who doesn’t want an edible human skull hand-made to order? Now that would be a delicacy — a fine, bone-grind of a cannibal’s dessert. Made from a mould that was hand cast from a real human skull, never you mind what crime scene made such a thing possible in the first place. Become your own personal […]


Back in the 17th century, Mary Queen of Scots once had a beautifully crafted skull watch made in her honor. Not long after, her head got chopped clean off. That historical timepiece, with some notes from the Day of the Dead, have directly inspired Fiona Krüger and this Black Skull watch. Each hand-decorated three-layer watch keeps its […]

A limited edition run of 50 individually numbered craniums

K. Olin Tribu, a French art house with roots in toy design, has kind of given new meaning to any of our former ideas about “praying to a porcelain god”. For while their use of the material in numerous artist collaborations is indeed pretty damned sick, there is faith renewed in the creative potential of porcelain. […]

The skull-obsessed label puts a touch of the macabre on a classic

This navy leather billfold is the latest from the Alexander Mcqueen luxury house. Not surprising for the skull-obsessed label, the straightforward design is trimmed with a touch of razor’s edge by a skeletal column embossed along the wallet’s spine. Subtly provocative, yet still classic in its aesthetic. The rich leather wallet is a Mr. Porter exclusive for $265. A […]
