I am starting to compile my dream looks for the fall and winter season. I need to go buy a sketchbook today so I can tape everything in there old school inspiration board style. I am torn between goth and preppy. The Verlaine Fall/Winter 2012 collection is giving me elegant goth looks. The Verlaine collection is for the grown up goth who has matured, but is still in love with edginess. The severe tailoring and sumptuous fabrics just do me in every time. I think my favorite pieces are the coat and long black dress with cutouts. I am really enjoying these looks from the lookbook. Enjoy!
Verlaine SS12, designed by Javier Garcia and Christine Dow, has got to be one of the prettiest collections I’ve seen in a long while. The collection looks like a post-apocalyptic spring of cool, neutral tones and tailored fabric blended with a feminine sexuality. The draping and subtle details really make the eyes move across the garments. I can’t wait to see what these talented designers do next.
