Mesh dress- Urban Outfitters
You've just entered a field with Wednesday Adams riding on a Unicorn, with stars and candy floss clustered around the scene. That's what I think whilst viewing Yohji Yamamoto and Giles Deacon SS11. I was completely dazed out of my mind. Both collections so vibrant; yet so different. Yohji Yamamoto takes on the twist of Industrial Gothic Wonderland. Contrasting textures and sudden outbursts of colours and stylised phycadelic iconography, topped with an intricate use of layering and shapes. Giving the feel of a raw Geisha. Where as Giles Deacon enters the Sorbet neon coloured cross Industrial World, influenced by the 90's. The collections gives the feel of the whole-trashy-burn-out-celebrity feel, complimented with almost drag styled make-up. Yet all the cross themes work with trainers, structured bodices, floaty silk skirts to 50's cat eye glasses, the contrasts building up to show off the style of 90's at its best, with an edge of course. I think I'll be needing a pair of neon trainers, I'm thinking chunky and metallic.
As for my outfit it was inspired the two collections. Sadly I had to put it tougher in a space of 5 mins, so next outfit will probably still be in ore of the collections and so will hopefully be better. (It looks very bland, a bit of a disappointment to post it on here, plus was wearing Patent Dr Martins which added to the look.)
Plus don't forget to check out pieces form my collection that you can purchase now. Hopefully this post has warmed you towards the pieces with the use of contrasting textures, and gothic wonderland essences (which can also be seen in Alexander Wang SS11). You can see how to purchase here.
Hope you have a fabulous week!
