Luxury with a playful twist is the name of the game here and designs range from punked out owls to magic mushrooms, a roller skate revival and mask motifs inspired by Mexican Luca Loco, who each have their own unique fighting mask design. Cheeky charms and wrestler dolls adorn the borders, available as eagle, panda, or tiger marks in deep berry, navy and pink.
