The latest fashion line from Z Spoke by Zac Posen, includes a sampling of Gothic clothing designed with an upscale feel. The thought of taking Gothic uptown is in itself an unusual move, making it interesting, and well, bizarre.
Posen described his new line as "Americana gone to the dark side."
While much of the line doesn't represent that in my view, here are a few interesting pieces to look at. What do you think? Do you consider the ensemble Gothic?
I like the first piece here, especially those cute gloves and matching shoulders. The black dress looks gorgeous as well.
This second piece is also great. That high neck, which is typical of a lot of the Gothic look of the ladies, is a nice touch. The long sleeves are also a nod towards many in the Gothic lifestyle who prefer the combination of long sleeves and high neck.
In this last outfit, those wide sleeves look fantastic. The way the outfit wraps with the belt is great. Add to that the wide pants and it's a compelling look.
It's interesting to see the influence of Goth on the fashion industry, and how it is interpreted for those seeking the style.
