Behind the smoldering eyes of this raven haired beauty lives a world of mystery, Zlata Mangafic in ‘Dark J’Adore’ by Txema Yeste for Stylist France #015. An ode to the beauty of black/black fashion, this stunning series celebrates the exquisite intensity of this season’s noir styles with rich looks that dare to redefine the idea of the “Dark Arts.” It’s what I’m calling the New Fashion Theater. Prolific artists delivering powerful pieces without all the excess drama, here Yeste proves that the evocative nature of today’s dark looks lie not in their ability to arouse but in their power to persuade. As we stand on the precipice of change it’s incumbent upon those of us who celebrate the art of style to point out those significant works that reflect on the future of fashion. What was once considered a wardrobe for the wicked is now seen as a sophisticated statement of empowered elegance. Gone are the days of Goth, the new black is about being free to express the depths of our strength and the subtly of our sensuality. So savor the dark, rich flavor of this Special Mode Series and let (stylist) Belen Casadevall’s stimulating mix of modern Punk inspire you to explore the beauty of black without all the somber stigma.
