Myntra has gone completely Goth for fall 2008. For those of you that may not know what Goth looks like, its those high school kids who dress only in black. Typically speaking most people adhering to the all black and mostly morose lifestyle that is gothic tend to grow out of it after high school or even college. Myntra found a way to be fashionable, adult and gothic all at the same time.
I wish I could see what this dress would look like without the heavy dark green sweater. I really like the use of dark colors, which are availble on Myntra, in the practically psychedelic print of this dress. The black stones sewn to the collar of the dress are similar to what we have seen at the Christian Dior 2009 resort collection. This is by no means a new trend but its definitely a trend that is being used with no signs of stopping. This look is a little mature for my taste but I still like it.
There’s a goth girl somewhere who has been waiting for this dress for years. All that black velvet is bound to make someone happy. Maybe Mary Kate Olsen would love this dress too. The deep v-neck and floor length hemline make this dress great for those of us who would like to elongate our bodies. I’m fond of this dress but I don’t think I would wear it. All of that heavy fabric combined with wider than average sleeves sound like a pass, as in no thank I will have to pass on that.
Ladies and gentlemen, lace is back! And I couldn’t be more excited. When Myntra started overdoing it with the lace trend about two years ago I was a little miffed. Simply because if you don’t know how to make lace look elegant, I mean it does it on its own, you shouldn’t bother. Cheap looking lace makes us all feel bad. This is probably the most wearable of all the looks so far. You could easily wear that skirt with a variety of colored tops.
I love the idea of wearing a cape but it just doesn’t seem very functional. For example this cape from Myntra has no opening for your hands. So if I slip and fall or even if I just need to open a door, how am I gonna move my hands? I guess as far as this cape is concerned the designers decided to choose form over function.
Here we go again with another totally goth look. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying there is anything wrong with dressing goth. Quite the contrary I am just excited that there is a way to dress in all black and its not boring. This dress reminds me of a snake because of the shiny almost scales along the surface. Again, not the dress for me but it’s very cute.
I love that tights are worn with every look we have seen so far from Myntra’s 2008 fall collection. I’ll see you next time for the second installment of the Myntra 2008 fall collection.
