A darker side of romance emerged this season for looks that mix the schoolgirl goth of Wednesday Adams with the edginess of 80s East Village punks. Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta of Eckhaus Latta showed deconstructed looks, like a handmade chainmail tank over artfully pieced and paneled pants. Chris Leba’s collection for R13 had a Victorian punk mood, lightened with a mix of pearls and Gothic jewelry rendered in bright white. Shiny black patent gave A. Potts’ romantic ruffles a moody, tough-tender look. Elena Velez gave a resilient spirit to her Victorian damsels, partly through the upcycled fabrics she chose, as in parachute nylons, ship sails (an homage to her sea captain mother) and military-grade canvas, their ruggedness contrasting with delicate corsetry constructions.
