These are my favorite looks from Ann Demeulemeester’s Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection. Rugged, chic, and elegant, with lots of different textures and layers, this all-black collection channels fashion from after the apocalypse.
I don’t particularly care for the background in this picture, but I love how it displays the leather corset and cowl/collar-piece by Antiseptic Fashion; it shows up all the details wonderfully, the tortured textures and sinuous shapes and asymmetrical lines, looking like hammered metal, some ungodly-beautiful combination of medieval armor and the modern avant-garde. Absolutely stunning designs in my opinion.
Found on the Tumblr circuits. I have no idea who the fashion designer is, or any of the other people involved, but I love this avant-garde, alien-warrior-like look.
Katarzyna Konieczka, sometimes known as Kasia Konieczka, makes the most incredible avant-garde costumes with a dark-conceptual bent. Encased in plastic, strapped into body-cages, wrapped in wire, and torturously beautiful, her costumes give off impressions of dark, twisted kingdoms, space-age worlds, daemonic sci-fi medical fetish suits, and labyrinthine strapped insane asylum couture.

I’ve just seen a fashion editorial featuring Mother of London clothing and photographed by Zhang Jingna over on Twisted Lamb which is incredible. Titled Before the Tide Comes In, Fashion Gone Rogue describes the concept as “a dark maiden of the sea.”

And here’s a behind-the-scenes video clip from the Cake Corsets shoot with Ulorin Vex:
Mother of London is an innovative alternative couturier that makes beautiful, inspired creations in rough vs. delicate textures: black leather, gauzy, tattered layers, elaborate lace, hardware and corset lacing. Their aesthetic is simultaneously rugged and delicate, futuristic and Victorian, with lots of asymmetry and contrasts. Check out some of their work below:
