Christian Audigier, former head of Von Dutch Originals, has created a clothing, footwear and accessories line using the biker-style designs of the Godfather of Tattoo, Don Ed Hardy. The LA-based brand, called Ed Hardy, is worn by Madonna, Britney Spears, Leonardo DiCaprio, Steve Tyler and Lenny Kravitz, and is all the rage in the US - on and off the road. Bestsellers include T-shirts emblazoned with skulls, serpents, hearts and daggers. Try the olive, vintage-washed T-shirt featuring a bald eagle (above right; HK$650) or the blue tee featuring a cheeky gambling skull (above left; HK$650). Most designs are unisex. Ed Hardy is available at Club 8, 19 Yun Ping Road, Causeway Bay, tel: 2972 2680.
