Normally, the whole darkness-is-me Rick Owens- and Damir Doma-inspired aesthetic tends to bore me somewhat but with the publication of the latest STYLED editorial from Oki-ni I’m seeing all those gothic nuances in an entirely different light.
^ STYLED by Hiroshi Hashiguchi for Oki-ni.com
Curated by emerging London-based stylist Hiroshi Hashiguchi (who’s also done some impressive work for Dazed), the shoot draws almost exclusively on the current season collections of four of fashion’s most brooding: Neil Barrett, Martin Margiela, Damir Doma and Rick Owens, and excellently reflects the designers’ own individual – if somewhat similar – styles whilst combining them into one coherent edit that’s as delicate and romantic as it is unyielding and dark.

Whatever it is, the more sun I see, the more black I want to buy. Reckon I’ll blame it on the sad but sweet sound of Zola Jesus…
