There's a few seasons that a kind of new gothic style is appearing. Since the fall winter 08/09 we can notice dark touches at collections like Balenciaga, Givenchy, Alexander Wang, Maison Martin Margiela and many others. And the collections for 09 pre-fall aren't the exception.
The main color is black, but also appears colors like grey, smoke, nude, white and militar green. Ripped clothes, zippers, leather and fringes inspires this look, where female and male caracters get mixed.
This kind of new gothic is product of Vogue Paris that started the trend under the influence of people like Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuelle Alt, etc., and then young Vogue readers started to copy the look. Even designers took it, as Alexander Wang, Balmain, Rodarte and Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy. Then, big brands that sells cheaper clothes like Topshop took it down to massive consumers.
Girls that proves this are Rumi at her her blog Fashion Toast and Camille at Childhood Flames.
For the next season brands like Versace, Vera Wang, Alexander Wang, TopShop and Diane Von Furstenberg wager for this style.
