A new t-shirt brand, Vicious History, has just launched in Massachusetts. It was created by a college student, Chaz Matses, 22 years old who choose to specialize in contemporary apparel which incorporates a vast range of historical influences into its designs. Vicious History’s purpose is to create inventive and unique apparel that allows them to share their artistic vision with their customers.
They have started out with 4 designs from some well known designers such as Keaton Henson, Killer Napkins, and Craig Robson. The Vicious History website design has dark goth style with a nicely put purple accent in it. Nice to know that they put a great effort to build their brand through their website.
I love all their t-shirts, but, my favorite t-shirt would be General Mutton tee ($20.00 $17 ~ on sale) that printed on Anvil 980 Slim Fit Tees and designed by Keaton Henson. Other design that catch my attention is Marie Antoinette ($20.00 $17 ~on sale) designed by Killer Napkins. Napkins has his own imagination of the beautiful Queen. Definitely an interesting & edgy design! Never knew that history could inspire such great looking t-shirts.
Check out all of their products here. To get to know them more and get information on their latest promo, follow them on the Vicious History Facebook and the Vicious History Twitter.
Tim Burton is a well known director especially for his Gothic theme in every movie he directs. One movie that will approach us is Alice in Wonderland. Approximately, the movie will be premiered starting next week, based on the classic novel by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (under pseudonym Lewis Carroll). The actual published date of the novel was on 1865, since then there are lot of movies made based on the characters.
Bringing up the Gothic spirit, La Carmina presents the Carmina in Wonderland t-shirt, designed by Joy. The picture depicts Alice and her cat — the grinning Cheshire cat that we used to know. Of course, it’s quite creepy picture presented but hey it’s Gothic after all!
The tees is available for both men and women size, priced at US$21.99 ~ you can can buy it from Akumu Ink (also available in guy’s size). To accompany this t-shirt, La Carmina has made black hoodie with similar design placed in the back side. The price of the hoodie is US$48,50 for men and women size. Anyway, all cats in the designs are based on the real world cat, Basil Farrow, La Carmina’s Scottish Fold cat.
Need a mask to cover you on a gloomy day? You can try wearing this Mask Tee ($28) from Shrimp Sauce clothing. The unique, goth and edgy design will put people attentions to your t-shirt and forget about you for a little while.
Shrimp Sauce is a lifestyle clothing label located in the swamp of Savannah, Georgia. They create high quality products with a little hint of Southern Gothic. No wonder, they have all black and Gothic style website. The Gothic style also shown in their t-shirt designs.
About the Southern Gothic, it’s actually a sub genre of the gothic novel, unique to American literature. Like its parent genre, it relies on supernatural, ironic, or unusual events to guide the plot. One of the most notable features of the Southern Gothic is “the grotesque” — this includes situations, places, or stock characters that often possess some cringe-inducing qualities, typically racial bigotry and egotistical self-righteousness — but enough good traits that readers find themselves interested nevertheless.
The Shrimp Sauce label takes influence from the south, the swamp, and the ocean. It was built off death, desire, closure, idealism, and beauty, and has risen from the Swamp to stamp itself in today’s market as a Cultural Pilgrimage.
Hope you’ll enjoy the experience of Southern Gothic with Shrimp Sauce!
