Phase of the Moment: In Goth We Trust
I've had fashion phases before. I remember in high school, I was into the preppy schoolboy looks (nerd was my keyword), then to colors (wild and eye-popping), then to surf looks (à la American Eagle and the like), and then to shorts (even in winter).
Right now, I guess I'm in the black-on-black phase. My choice of clothing revolves around the color. And I'm increasingly aware of it now that I've been purchasing--surprise, surprise--black clothes!
I think it's for convenience since black is the most trustworthy color: when all else fails, black is always the fall back! I did visualize myself being goth, though. The mere thought scared me a little bit because, frankly, I'm the joyous type.
Givenchy has a wonderful goth-inspired collection. I really like the contradictions in the Fall-Winter 2010 menswear, that of calm religious piety and sleek sportiness. But the contradictions don't stop there! View the full collection at GQ.com.
