Living dead souls is a clothing company which specialises in alternative fashion. It is a stylish edgy brand of particular interest to punks, emos, and goths. They produce a wide variety of clothing including dresses, pants, jumpers and shirts as well as a variety of accessories such as jewellery, belts and bags.
The bag I am writing about today is The Living Dead Souls Manslayer shoulder bag. These are avaliable for £34.99 with free super saver delivery on amazon, although I managed to pick one of these up from a stall in soho for £20, so as always its worth shopping around. These bags have a very unique and edgy style. They come in a variety of colours, I have seen a plain black version avaliable. The most popular styles have a pinstripe design and these are avaliable in black & white and black & red. The one I bought is purple and black pinstripe. The bag itself is fairly large measuring approx 40 x 14 x 26 cm. Personally, i do find that due to the size of the bag i dont find it suitable for everyday use. Instead I often use it as a little overnight bag or for long days out when I need to carry extra items. I feel it would be of particulaly interest to students, not only for its design, but also for its size and shape which would be ideal for carrying folders and books.
I love the amount of pockets and compartments that this bag has. To start with there is a large zip on the top which is the main part, inside this is a small zipped compartment ideal for purse and keys, along with a mini pocket and strips for holding pens. On the back is a large pouch opening, which fastens with a stud. There are large zipped pockets on either side of the bag, two zipped pockets on the front which in turn have smaller zipped pockets on the front of them. So, plenty of room for all your odds and ends!
From one of the zips hangs a "silver" skeleton head with red eyes, which is a trademark of the Living dead souls brand. A decorative set of handcuffs is linked by two d rings on another compartment. The bag also had many added studs and d-rings. There is a large black buckle around the top.
Handle wise we have a couple of options. First up is the main handle which is attatched to the bag. It is large And thick with a studded hole design, this can easily be put over the shoulder or carried by hand. Included is also a black adjustable shoulder strap, this can be added and removed using the clips at the sides.
All in all I love this bag not only do i find it very useful, but i love the design too. One bad point about the bag is that it is fairly heavy, which is a slight annoyance. Overall I love this bag and would recommend it to anyone into alternative fashion.
