Despite the morbid subject matter, the collection exudes more of a dark romantic feel than a horror show. Although some of the pieces stay true to the murderous nature of the story, using funeral blacks and white lilies to evoke death, there are also rich injections of colour more in line with the brighter tones used in David's iconic scarf designs. As if that weren't good enough, this collection also features more bold and unique jewellery by the endlessly talented Kirsty Ward, whose own work I personally can't get enough of.
In short, I have fallen into a deep dark love with all of it. The concept, the story, the designs - all of it appeals to the secret inner-goth that dwells within my seemingly-sunny exterior, hungering for fashion with more bite than good craftsmanship alone can offer. It was so difficult to pick a favourite piece, so here is a selection from David Longshaw's hauntingly beautiful collection.
