This Japanese inspired look is flamboyant and confrontational, yet romantic with a hint of punk. Growing in popularity since the 1990's alternative fashion brands like Punk Rave have truly embraced this style in their clothing collections.
Take the Kimono Tunic Jacket for example, with elegant lacing, exaggerated flared sleeves and floral velvet flocking it takes Goth fashion to a new level.
The innocence and cuteness of this Romantic Roses outfit is made clear from the gorgeous sparkling black silk, smocking and flocked black roses. The modest black silk bolero features a high collar and short sleeves and can be teamed with various items to create the perfect look.
A firm favourite is the Black Corseted blouse, featuring guipere lace with musical notes within the lace design. This gothic shirt can be worn in many ways, working well under a corset or over a long sleeved top as it has detachable long puffed sleeves too. The back showcases corseted lacing for the perfect fit.
We love this Noirelien Black Velvet Bolero with its opulent velvet design and tempting lace trim, while the high collar with frog fastening gives a slightly militant feel.
It's the perfect combination of daring and sexy, the Deviless Long Black Witchy Skirt shows you mean business with leather waist and seductive lacing over the hips and back.
