Oasis and New Look both produced an individual twist on ‘gothic’ for autumn winter 2010, continuing the spring/summer trend for underwear as outerwear.

Dior and Dolce & Gabbana plunged into the lingerie drawer for spring/summer to bring us frills, lace and corsetry- see Fashionbite’s post New Season Preview: Key looks for spring Part II.

So for autumn, Oasis has channeled the Edwardian-gothic femme-fatale. Black is a key colour in fabrics such as velvet, lace, silk, satin and leather, along with lace detailing on footwear and accessories. The collection is really strong and perfect for winter partywear.

In contrast, New Look offered a white gothic story for autumn in one of its more premium ranges, using lace, silks and satin fabrics. I really liked the collection- standout pieces which would look fab for all those Christmas parties! New Look, white gothic for autumn/winterNew Look, white gothic for autumn/winter
