Dark Romanticism -reflecting popular fascination with the irrational, the demonic and the distorted. It has shadowed romantic movements since the 18th Century.
Halloween - a great opportunity for people to express their inner personalities.
This season's dark romantic trend showcases the dramatic, theatrical look - Nu's Strapless Tulle Dress is ideal for special events. The tulle mesh layers create an artful look styled with a long sleeved top and leggings. Tulle provides a lightweight, fine, stiff netting adding the romantic touch to an outfit. No longer reserved for just veils and bridal gowns, tulle is an easy way to add volume and a touch of texture to your look.
If you are making just one investment this Winter make it a Les Filles D'Ailleurs' Long Sleeved Trench Coat. Worn over outfits, and styled up with Beatrice B's fur collar, this creates a luxurious look with added detail perfect for that special occasion.
The bolder the better is key to this trend! Think 'showman' with a feminine edge - Oblique Creation's Carabiner Jumpsuit, with chain cuffs and zip up front offers a chic and stylish tailored touch.
Once again for the Autumn Winter season the colour black dominates. Here we see dramatic silhouettes for a sculptured effect. Nu works black across pleated and textured jackets, creating movement with bat-wing shapes. Oblique Creations tailored interpretation features folded pleats and roll necks.
