Just days after I posted about how my latest manicure was inspired by the 13th-century Gothic chapel Saint-Chapelle in Paris, street-style photographer Bill Cunningham of The New York Times says,
“The gothic and medieval eras are casting their spells over fashion. Today’s look of black leggings and abbreviated coats suggests men in the 1400s.”
Cunningham’s “On the Street” feature in today’s New York Times even includes an image of the famous unicorn tapestry at the Cloisters, which was among the images I emailed to celebrity manicurist Tracylee Percival as inspiration for her nail art.
Some of those black-legging wearing ladies need to wear my medieval-inspired jewelry. Maybe my chunky Juana skull ring …
… or my Matilda sword earrings.
Here’s Bill explaining why he sees 14th-century style on the streets of New York.
- Monday: Get your hashtag jewelry here.
- More Monday: Gothic nail art.
- Wednesday: Shoutouts to bloggers who wrote about me.
- Thursday: I’m suddenly in love with Jessica Biel.
- Saturday: I relate to Britney Spears’s posing problem.
