Fall-Winter 2014/2015 Fashion trends: Gothic
We dream about Summer, but Winter is here now, so let's see what is hot for the cold season.
Gothic temptress rises in dark, rebellious imperial clothing for the Fall-Winter 14/15 season, say the trend analysts at Trendstop.com - one of the world's leading trend forecasting agencies, renowned for its insightful trend analysis and forecasts.
This cool fashion trend inspires a nighttime intensity across both apparel and accessory styles.
Updating traditional Eastern styles with a dark Western flair, Goth Geisha apparel makes a romantic statement on the runways. Prada opt for an austere floral placement two-piece, as moody blooms surface on black grounds across a mini dress and cape at Leonard. Christopher Kane experiments with sheer underlays on an ornately wrought leather midi dress.
Taking cues from the catwalks, we see Goth Geisha elements emerge in early indicator retail collections. A pleated mini dress seduces with sheer panels at Valentino, as River Island offer an elegant kimono complete with devore detail and tassels. Topshop opt for a more casual interpretation, incorporating ornate jacquard print on a black jersey sweat.
A Goth Geisha would be nothing without her treasure trove of darkly sophisticated accessories, as styles fuse Oriental elegance with fetishistic qualities. Alexander McQueen's thigh-high heeled boots inspire notions of leather corsets, as Ruffian's statement gold collar is finished with a large horsehair tassel. Haider Ackermann adds interest to an ankle bootie with woven textures and layered skinny straps.
A parallel theme surfaces in accessory designs from directional retail stores, indicating a key look to translate into collections for next Fall/Winter. ASOS offer a pair of chunky geisha-inspired platform sandals, as bejeweled earrings are finished with fine chain tassels at Topshop. A boxy clutch is worked in quilted leather and gold metal detailing at Lulu Guinness Ð a perfect piece for party season wardrobes.
