Have oil spills gone hip? First, Italian Vogue recreated the devastation for an artsy photo spread. Then, Bed Stü launched a line of oil-splotched shoes that called attention to Gulf Coast cleanup efforts. Now, Deepwater Horizon chic is coming to your neck, wrist, and décolletage with the BP spill-inspired Golfo Collection, a shortlisted entry in the 2010 Incheon International Design Awards from Designboom.

BUILT TO SPILL

Designed by a trio of creatives from Mexico—Maria Fernanda Montiel, Sofia Prado, and Mariana Armella—the six-piece ceramic-and-pearl collection offers pristine silhouettes marred by black enamel to represent the “dead and damage caused by human’s ambition and greed.” Oh snap! This is one sassy and snarky new fashion trend, but will it really help us reduce our oil consumption?
