We are thrilled to announce "Tattoo," the Fall 2008 collection of Sid Dickens Memory Blocks.
Please double click the image above to view in closer detail. This collection is due to arrive in the shop as soon as the week of September 8th.
Here is Sid Dickens' statement about the collection:
"Throughout the centuries, cultures around the world have cherished self-expression in their celebration of life, tradition and values. By various means and styles of art, timeless representations of our realities remain; a testament of life. Marking the skin of one's own body as a means of expressing the most deep ideals has been a choice for as long as history itself.
"For Fall 2008 Sid Dickens imprints his legacy of expression with the release of "Tattoo," a symbolic collection of tiles connected to memories of life, adventure and love. Themes emblazoned on the skin of people across the globe; permanent reminders of time's passage.
"Skin...canvas of memory, adorned with tales of life and experience."
And here are the three Holiday 2008 releases. Remember that Holiday releases are always Limited Edition and will only be available to order until December 1st. What we have in the shop on that day or already on special order will be all we can ever get of these Limited Edition tiles!
The Holiday Blocks will be arriving in the store as soon as the week of September 8th, too. Please note that we are now taking reservations for the Blocks that will be arriving in our first Fall 2008 shipment. Once our allotment has been reserved for each style, we will begin taking special orders. As fans and collectors know, there is never such a thing as "too soon" when reserving a Sid tile. They go fast. As our floor stylist says, they're kind of like potato chips. You start with one and then you just can't stop!
Stay tuned for the official announcement of our upcoming summer trunk show, slated for Saturday, July 19th from 10 AM-5 PM (regular store hours). This one-day event will feature the complete Active Collection of Sid Dickens Blocks as well as our coveted line of wax seal jewelry. More details to come!
