A star cross’d fall…

Keyword: Crosses

They seem to be everywhere. Prefall and F/W collection are packed with them. High-end brands and youth brands are exploiting them to create different moods. For example, the Californian brand Wildfox Couture got their inspiration from Romeo and Juliet’s teenage drama turning it into a happy ending, scattering around crosses and church scenarios. Have a look at their lookbook here.

Aligned with one of F/W 12 big trends, the baroque-gothic trend, crosses and churches, deprived of their inner religious meaning, become mainstream. There’s a 80’s feel to them though gone is the time when Madonna’s video “Like a prayer” would stir scandal and controversy, crosses are just one of the many accessories for the next season. Brands like ASOS and Nasty Gal, provide us with a wide range of choices: t-shirt, necklaces, earrings… Even the young fashion brand from Barcelona, Glint, has something for us. What’s your pick?
