Fashion on Film: Winter is Coming

30 Jul

So after becoming thoroughly addicted to Game of Thrones (after missing that bandwagon for quite some time), I finally understand the true visual inspiration that blogger Miss Moss connected from the series to Givenchy’s fall 2012 couture collection.

The show’s heart-melting attention to detail is enough to send any fashion addict into fits of delight, and to see it manifested into a dreamlike collection of medieval-come-modern makes the period costume lover in me the happiest of campers.

The collection is filled with intricate detailing, luxurious fabrics, and rich furs that take GOT’s stylistic mixture to a whole new couture level. The comparisons are best seen in Miss Moss’s photo matches, my favourites of which are pictured below.

Amazeballs right?

So for some of the more *ahem* budget restricted folks here (what? Couture not in your paycheque? You’d rather eat!?! How quaint…) who are looking for some Seven Kingdom’s style for this fall season, have no fear!

I’d check out some of the amazing faux leather skirts that are already coming out in the pre-fall/ fall collections at two of the saviours of student style, H&M and Urban Outfitters. Pair with a textured knit and heavy chain jewellery to keep you warm through the long winter.

For right now, how about trying some GOT-inspired braids? Youtube is filled with tutorials, one of my favourites being this look by LaDollyVita33, based of the hairdo Daenerys wore in the Pyre scene in season 1; Perfect for finding your dothraki man warrior!

Are you thinking of channeling a bit of medieval maven this fall/winter?

Are you also impatiently waiting until March to find out what’s going to go down in season 3?

So It Begins…
