Gilding Primal Instinct‘s beautiful F/W 2012 collection The Executioner features blades, gauzy veil-like textures, and alluringly alien metallic masks and headpieces These pieces perfectly embody the mission to “create an aggressive dichotomy between subtle, elegant forms and vicious primal instinct [and] translate practices of ritual adornment into iconic character archetypes.”
Artist Charmaine Olivia‘s gorgeous outfit at the opening of her show, Ritual, on January 14th, is an awesome real-life example of a simple but effective look. The black, full-length dress with cutouts in back is from Paprika via ASOS; the look is accented with sterling silver jewelry, including the “Seance” bracelet cuff from Blood Milk, and sets off her tattoos beautifully.
