Crazy Couture: Dorian Head Slice Cameo Earrings


The Dorian Head Slice Cameo Earrings by Gogo Philip are certainly one of a kind. The earrings consist of a cameo of a woman and a gold tone miniature scaffold. I’ve never seen something like that so I had to look at it twice.

I can understand if you think it’s morbid, I don’t really understand the message behind it, the brand certainly isn’t criticizing executions. Let’s be honest the last execution with a scaffold was in the 19. century, so it is not so up-to-date anymore. If you ask me there are way more terrible execution methods nowadays but I don’t want to get into detail here. Let’s just say it is up to you wether you want to have little scaffolds dangling on your ears, I would not judge you on that. And in a strange way they look charming with that nice cameo on top.

There are many brands using little rifles or daggers in their jewelry collections, I have a belt with a dagger at the front and I love it, it looks beautiful.

Ives Saint Laurent has a gun as one of his key prints in their Fall/Winter Collection 2014 and Vanessa Mooney’s jewelry are often decorated with little daggers.

Thank you for stopping by!

What’s you opinion? Should weapons be used as prints or accessories in fashion collections?

Tell me in a comment 🙂
