Occult-Inspired Menswear from Givenchy, Dior Homme, McQueen, and Others

When it comes to menswear and style, my inspiration stems from just about anywhere. The occult has always been an obsession of mine, and with All Hallows Eve just around the corner, it's only fitting that I curate a collection of pieces featuring the dark and mystical faces of menswear. Consider yourself spellbound.


Dior Homme Presents Mystic Arcana - The world of menswear has been on a rampage of sorts in terms of the graphic print trend. Homme has taken archaic-like symbols and implemented them into seamless classic Dior designs creating a menswear version of The Craft. Note the European schoolboy looks here. Despite the gothic nature of the collection, it does an excellent job of retaining its youth. Welcome to Hogwarts, gents.


Anne Demeulemeester's Witch Hunt - Anne's A/W 2013 show takes more a literal turn to the dark side. The wide-brimmed hats accompanied with the oversized outer-layering pieces prove to have a dark and fun affect. While Dior pulls from a heavy European influence, this collection evokes 17th century colonial America. Who said witchcraft was for women only?


Givenchy & The Black Cauldron - Riccardo Tisci is no stranger to the goth world, having pioneering menswear towards the graphic and the street goth trend. The all-black, leather, haunting graphics and bad-ass bravado on the runway creates a modern day Lost Boys appeal.
