Modern Myth Inspiration

3

Myths and fantastic creatures were often used to explain the unexplainable. While modern science has unraveled many of the mysteries that once puzzled our ancestors, it’s fun to step back in time to an era where mythical beasts roamed in the dark shadows, and mystical magic could be summoned for good and evil, especially around Halloween! During Halloween we can pay homage to these characters by translating their signature looks into costumes that are out of this realm. Take a look at these breathtaking examples of myths made modern!b23f6f0c906fb5ee779c8e6f80d56f6a

Go Bold, Go Gold Inspiration

2

If you want to go bold, your metal of choice should be gold. Gold is an editorial favorite, and has always been used to signify some of the most luxurious aspects of fashion, while also being used to create super natural looks. The shine and sparkle of gold is reflective and adds an element of magic to anything it touches. georgia_may_jagger1

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Element

This year at Paris Fashion Week French fashion designer, Jean Paul Gaultier, said farewell to ready-to-wear to focus on his couture collection. While we’ll definitely miss the eclectic edge that he brought to the stage, we’re excited to see what incredible creations he’ll come up with when putting his full creative potential to use. One of our favorite movies for costume design was, in fact, created by Gaultier. We’re referring to the science fiction cult classis, The Fifth Element. Check out some of the incredible outfits from the movie below!
