Hubba, Hubba, Hercules!

Torynova Couture has just expanded its Wearable Stories Collection into 4 new styles, now available in the store! The new additions are based off of the 12 Labors of Hercules – Labor #2 Lernean Hydra and Labor #12 Hound of Hades:

After being tormented by the jealous goddess Hera, Hercules [the son of Zeus] had lost his mind and killed his wife and children. When he awoke from this state of insanity, he was so stricken with grief that he pleaded for help from the god Apollo. The god’s oracle cast his punishment as servitude to king Eurystheus for 12 years. As part of his sentence, Hercules had to perform 12 Labors, which were feats deemed nearly impossible to complete. With the assistance of sympathetic deities, Hercules combated each labor. Thus he gained the identity of being the legendary Greek hero.

The 2nd Labor: Hercules vs. The Hydra, a deadly serpent that can regenerate its nine heads and seeps with poisonous venom and blood.

The 12th Labor: Hercules vs. Cerberus, the three-headed ferocious Hound of Hades that must be captured and taken from the Underworld.

Looking good, no? These additions are gorgeous and well-fit for the body. They would be perfect for the avant guarde, fashion forward trendsetter of society. I plan on wearing Herc vs Hydra to all the holiday/gallery parties this fall season because it just looks so great and FIERCE! Check them out in the store.

  1. I hope your store is doing crazy sales because this stuff is just awesome. I’m sure I’ve used the a-word a bit too often on your blog, but I love the compositions, palettes, imagery — and then what you do with these pieces. I’m going to be saving up for one of those ties…
