In darkness, there’s mystique.
As humans, we tend to fear the unknown. We subconsciously fear what resides deep into the night and away from plain sight. But, it is in the darkness that we find ourselves. We become so painstakingly aware of ourselves and our place in the world as if to say, “You are the reason I understand how imperative it is that I never lose sight of myself.”
For this March’s #PARCINQFashion, we strayed away from the yearly Pantone trend and embraced the darkness with open arms.
Black symbolizes death, darkness, and the mysteries of the universe. And in the case of the goths of the world, they have made black their symbol as they revel in melancholy and celebrate the macabre of life. Through their self-expression, they exist to challenge society's rules and identify themselves away from perceived normalcy—outcasts, if you will.
For this fashion editorial, we look to this generation’s gothic symbol, who lives by the beat of their own drum, Wednesday Addams. Captured through the lens of fashion photographer Rxandy Capinpin, Gwen Apuli of our nation’s girl group BINI transforms into our favorite child of woe—in style.
