Skulls in Fashion


EN:

The skull symbol, reminding us of Edgar Allan Poe’s tales and Gothic influences is usually associated with mortality, death, danger or power. Nowadays, it has become an everlasting fashion trend that most people are trying to keep up with. Powered by the force of consumer marketing, the skull has apparently lost its fearsome meaning and has become a part of all fashion genres. We can find several clothing pieces and accessories with skulls, from scarves, belts, jewellery, sometimes with precious or semiprecious stones fitted in them or designer-made. Skulls do not look very feminine, but manage to draw attention upon an outfit. While some people stick to the traditional opinion that they belong in Halloween costumes, Alexander Macqueen created some mysteriously elegant, although a little morbidous, pieces with skulls. What is your opinion? Would you wear something skull-decorated and if so, under which circumstances?

RO:

Simbolul craniului, care ne aminteste de povestile lui Edgar Allan Poe si de influentele gotice este, de obicei, asociat cu mortalitatea, moartea, pericolui sau puterea. In zilele noastre, s-a transformat intr-o tendinta perpetua a modei, adoptata de multi. Sub influenta fortei marketingului de consum, craniile par a-si pierde semnificatia infricosatoare si devin parte a tuturor ramurilor modei. Putem gasi diverse articole de imbracaminte si accesorii decorate cu cranii, precum: esarfe, curele, bijuterii, uneori cu pietre pretioase sau semipretioase sau create de designeri. Craniile nu arata foarte feminin, insa reusesc sa atraga atentia asupra unei tinute si sa o scoata din anonimat. In vreme ce unele persoane raman la parerea traditionalista ca locul lor este in costumatiile de Halloween, Alexander Macqueen le-a utilizat pentru a crea articole de o eleganta misterioasa, desi morbida. Care este parerea voastra? Ati purta haine/accesorii decorate cu cranii si daca da, in ce circumstante?
