For Spring 2009 Bebe was heavily “inspired” by Balmain. For their latest Fall collection they took inspiration from the darkest creatures to roam the shadows: VAMPIRES! Ever since Twilight has become the next Harry Potter phenomenon letting teenagers faint by the dozen, it is utterly impossible to NOT stumble upon vampires EVERYWHERE.
There are vampire books, vampire movies and a whole lot of vampire merchandise. And thanks to Bebe you can now dress like your favorite vampire. The trend has finally pushed its way into the fashion world.
Bebe’s Fall 2009 lookbook features a dark and moody setting. The color palette is mostly limited to black and the clothes give off this distinct romantic gothic vibe with victorian details like lace, embroideries, hair pieces, frills, ruffles and beaded necklaces.
What do you think of this trend? I find myself liking a few of the pieces and am curious to see more. What about you? Can you imagine being a fashionable vampire fashionista? 😉
BTW: I wanted to know what the fuzz is all about and watched Twilight last week. And while I realize that this film is rather targeted at a teenage audience I really had to pause it once in a while to laugh out loud because the majority of the dialogues were beyond gaudy. Too sticky & sweet.
