Tartan at The Gothic Shop

Tartan has been around since time immemorial, in the same way as polka dots or stripes have.  Hailing back from the days way up there in the highlands, invented as a way of sussing out someone's clan! And then all over those cute little pieces of luggage back in the 1970's. Punk also made Tartan very cool soon after this in the 1980's with the likes of fashion designers Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren clocking onto the trend. Who could forget Johnny Rotten of Sex Pistols making a statement in his Tartan suit? A little kooky, yes but effortlessly punk at the same time.
But Tartan for your Gothic wardrobe? Yes! It's quirky, cute and fun making it perfect for that alternative outfit! Here are just a few pieces  from the Hell Bunny range new in at The Gothic Shop.

Tartan Zipper Halterneck Dress by Hell Bunny  £38.40
This saucy halterneck zipper dress from Hell Bunny in a Tartan fabric is available in two colour options: A traditional red and black or a pretty plum purple with black. Pinched in at the waist and when worn with a flared petticoat ensures that cool retro goth look. We just love this delicious addition to any Gothic wardrobe!

Olly Red London Tartan Uneven Witchy Skirt by Hell Bunny £23.50  

Want something daring in Tartan? Take a peek at this gorgeous skirt from Hell Bunny, another of our brand new Autumn/ Winter 2012 collection.
This adorable little number has all those essential punk aspects: The detachable silver chain, and the zipper and ribbon fastenings too. The uneven edge adds a quirky twist, short and sassy but still long enough to cover your backside! A daring daytime look as well as evening one with ripped tights, heels or your fav knee high buckled boots.

Alexander Red London Tartan-Goth Lolita Dress by Hell Bunny £48.50

Everything about this Alexander Red dress from Hell Bunny is lush! From the Broderie Anglaise  trimming along the corseted top and skirt to the cheeky frill with the black satin ribbons! 'Pretty in Punk' is the term that springs to mind!This is Lolita style at it's best and is one of our new favorites here at The Gothic Shop!
