DIA DE LOS MUERTOS

02.11.13

Here at Reiss, we don't want Halloween to hog all the limelight, so we're also celebrating the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos. Translating as Day of the Dead, the three-day holiday celebrates the friends and family that are no longer with us, in Mexico and other cultures worldwide.

Officially kicking off on the 31st until today, decorative skulls epitomise Dia de los Muertos, and in lieu of any candy-coloured skulls in the Reiss AW13 collection, we look to our decorative brooches to gently nod to the holiday instead.

These embellished beauties make the perfect finishing touch to the lapel of a jacket or on a super-soft winter knit, adding a much-appreciated flourish of colour and sparkle.

We think Maxie and Kaspa work best for Dia de los Muertos, but there is a pretty clan of pins to choose from if you're spooked by the skulls.
