I’ve noticed the wide range of labels now embellishing their merchandise with amazing designs and graphics. Some are gothic themed, using skulls, wings, gothic script text etc… whilst others use 100% original in-house artwork. Stand out this summer and check out the wicked designs and graphics in the 2012 collections.

1. Cuckoos Nest Out There T Shirt
This faded black, ribbed crew neck is one of my favourites from Cuckoos Nest. I love the juxtaposition of a countryman and his gun dog contrasted against the video game style aliens dropping down from the mountainous backdrop. The image on the reverse shows the man walking away from the scene. The distressed metal Cuckoos Nest logo embossed rivet is featured on the short sleeve – not bad for £30.

2. Blood Brother Consume Or Die T Shirt
In white and made from pure cotton with a ribbed crew neck design and short sleeves. This wicked T-shirt shows three grey scale images printed on the front, featuring a bunch of American dollars, a gun and two roses with the apt text ‘Consume Or Die’ printed in white and black. Blood Brother signature woven logo tag is sewn to the reverse bottom right corner. Buy this for £35.

3. King Krash Crew Neck T Shirt
Retro American muscle cars are cool, simple as that. I believe this is a 69 Chevy Camaro street rod, printed in faded washed out colours. There’s the signature King Krash logo in black on the reverse right shoulder. Bring back the spirit of the 70s with King Krash for around £73.

4. Delta Tribe – Rebel
Delta Tribe is a London based clothing label situated in trendy Soho. Their 100% in-house art is aimed towards the young fashion consumer. Delta Tribe is the uniform for an eclectic, modern, urban youth. I selected their Rebel T-shirt as the art is so bold, and I love the detailed skull and flag. Find these wicked T-shirts for around £25.

5. Divine Trash Finger Girl T Shirt
A topless girl flipping the bird is sexy. This black, crew neck T-shirt is 100% cotton.  Check out Divine Trash and their brand new range of Risky Logo T-shirts – and only around £25.
