Gareth Pugh 2010 Springtime for Male and Female Goths

What do dark, Gothic fashion designers create for a season where all other contemporaries are producing neutral, light and pastel colors? A talented designer adapts. For Gareth Pugh's Spring/Summer 2010 presentation in Paris last week, he featured light, androgynous male and female models Fairer Carpathian princes (Lestat, Prince Vigo from Ghostbusters 2) rather than your standard jet-haired, velvet clad noir types. He used all shades of grey in various textures, conveying a wind blown, ghostly look, or cold and demonic. The make-up was equally stark, the eyes were done to look piercing and cruel. The silhouettes were absolutely lovely, the sculpted jackets, artfully shredded gowns...

I love the bird-wing inspired headdresses! The V shape of the top one is very dramatic, although I'm not sure how she sees out of the mask... I've had a mind to put a bird-wing headdress together for my outfit for Wave Gothik Treffen for a while, and this is wonderful inspiration material.
