We’ve seen many interpretations of various styles, be it the rebellious and bold youth drive, the elegant and classy interpretations or sporty looks. However, there is one spectacular theme that has been missing among all those lines so far, and that’s the gothic-rock style, which can be found very rarely presented via some small elements on few garments, and this possibility of noticing these silhouettes is especially low when it concerns the fall/winter campaigns. Therefore, the new Byblos fall/winter 2013-2014 collection is unique in many aspects and one of those is the thematic concentration of it, being an interesting mix between the traditional classy motives of Byblos and the mysterious black atmosphere created by the gothic influence. This, however, didn’t affect the existence of chic and elegant looks in the Byblos collection.
Thus, in the Byblos fall/winter 2013-2014 collection we see a huge choice of sumptuous dresses, the accent of which is put on the floor length garments, which seem to have the greatest proportion of chic and pure elegance on. The feminine and a bit aggressive looks are left for the knee and mini length dresses, created with a variety of designs, fabrics, and techniques used.
So when talking about the techniques, we can mention the lavishly used lace covering the neck, the waist and sometimes the hem of the dresses. The transparent motives are simply perfect for the mystique effect that has been meant to create. The overwhelming shape of the dresses is concentrated around the A-line, featuring different lengths, but similar designs.
The leather interpretations are one of the most remarkable and manly aspects of the Byblos fall/winter 2013-2014 collection. Such are the oversized outlines as well. Embroidery is among the most delicate and stunningly worked out techniques. The glittery motives, which are also included in the collection, being a sort of compensation for the darker shades, manage to create really nice party looks.
The pleated design is another spectacular theme of the Byblos fall/winter 2013-2014 collection, which matches the classy thigh high and ankle boots and court shoes perfectly. The kimono cuts and cropped motives are also popular here. Thus, here we have an exclusive gift for the fans of gothic style, which appears as a scrupulous mixture with the classic and glamorous looks.
