The use of goth-y severity to portray fashion in the year’s darker months has become a bit tired in our books. But it is harder to dismiss when presented in a way that reminds us so fondly of one of our all time favourite movies: Buffy The Vampire Slayer (the original!). We imagine the girls of Chloe Comme Parris F/W 2012 to be the stylish 90s girl-clique vampires – both melancholic and ethereal. The clever sort who were hiding in the underworld, while the rest were getting attacked by Kristy Swanson and her stake. Thus, we approve, big time.
