Louis Vuitton Resort 2018

Is fashion headed for the dark ages?

With the world-dominating popularity of shows like Game of Thrones and The Last Kingdom, medieval fashion is entering the homes of millions and the rest of popular culture is taking note. Now starlets and street style pros are outfitting themselves with battle ready ensembles. Whether it be cloaks and dark leather, or even fur and chainmail, there are a multitude of ways to go medieval.

For starters, there were the studded shoulder pads Louis Vuitton sent down their Resort 2018 runway and the caped masterpieces of Alberta Ferretti Fall 2017. If you don’t prefer all-out costumes, subtle fairytale touches can be feminine and provide intriguing texture to sleek, dark ensembles, as demonstrated by Chiara Ferragni. — jpw
