Here at FM, we cannot get enough of Showtime’s gothic horror series Penny Dreadful, and with the second season premiering this weekend, we will not have to wait much longer to be satiated. But it is still a few days away, so to tide fans over, Hot Topic released a Penny Dreadful-inspired fashion line today, and screw my wallet, I want it all!
The beautifully designed pieces definitely capture the macabre aesthetic that is at the very core of the series. Scorpions and spiders hide in lace details and victorian-inspired prints on dresses, tank tops, and jackets. The line will be available for pre-order online at Hot Topic from April 28, before hitting shelves on May 26.
The aim of the collaboration between CBS Consumer Products, Showtime, and Hot Topic was to give fans a way to flaunt their love for the show, and without a doubt, they’ve hit the mark. »
