This fashion week has donned some incredible trends to come, but the one I want to talk about today is the baroque/victorian look. With its heavy embellishment, impeccable detail, and rich colours and fabrics, its an ultra-luxe look that can be hard to pull off. But they’ve done something different with the look – its a mixture between aristocracy and punk grunge. It’s a fusion between Marie Antoinette and Alice Cooper in the best kind of way. The dainty details and heavy embroidery are matched with dark makeup and messy hair to create the perfect combo. Scared to try this look at home? Don’t be! By mixing in rich pieces with what you already have, you can look like a grunge goddess!
Marc Jacobs does a very ornate take on the look with lace and embroidery in neutral tones
Burberry was inspired by Virginia Woolf and Nancy Lancaster in their middle english military chic
Marchesa takes an ethereal approach to the look with chiffon and embroidery and slicked backed hair for an edge. Meanwhile, Coach goes heavy on the grunge and light on the victorian flower child, with leather and studs but an added softness of translucent florals.
