Gothic Romance

Discover this season's all-black trend.

Darkness reigns this season as designers from Saint Laurent to Givenchy have turned the lights up on all-black looks.

Gothic-inspired eveningwear is mysterious and sexy, with lacy full-length evening gowns and maxi dresses by Maje and The Kooples, and body-con mini-dresses by Calvin Klein and Zapa all adding a bite of vampiric seduction to your wardrobe. Strappy heels by Bérénice and a smattering of silver jewellery are the perfect final flourishes. The darkness works by day too: oversized leather jackets by Suncoo layered with black roll-necks or sweater dresses make for a textural look when worn with combat trousers or leggings, and finished off with patent leather shoes. The best thing about going back-to-black? It’s a timeless look. So think of your black garments as investment pieces you’ll wear forever.
