Just a few photos and runway clips of three collections I've been meaning to share for awhile. Gorgeous designs of course but I also think they each have their own unique hints of that Dark Fairytale Trend I've been highlighting in fashion, media, and advertising.
Prabal Gurung - Stated inspiration was Great Expectations.
But I can't help but think Little Red Riding Hood - Goth Princess.
Chanel Ready To Wear - The staging is outstanding, the burnt forest volcanic setting, like a Dragons lair.
And then there are the darkly romantic capes.
Jean-Charles De Castelbajac - the most surreal & quirky of lot - Salvador Dali meets101 Dalmatians.
So maybe more like Dark Disney Tales.
The skull embossed felt hats are that perfect kind of take a second look cool.
