This store isn’t exactly “new”, but I discovered it last year when I visited the UK, in Camden Markets. Everywhere I looked there was clothing I loved, with burlesque, punk and Victorian influences.
No Wear is the brainchild of Austrian designers Doris & Max. It started off with a crochet collection – this mightn’t seem to exciting, til you think how well Rodarte did with the loosely knitted/crocheted look a few years back.
AS they state: Our range, a mix of various styles, i.e punk, burlesque, goth and current fashion trends aims to achieve an ” ELEGANTLY WASTED ” look.
Hah, no wonder it resonates with me so much. It is clothing for clubbing and being seen in. I invested in a gorgeous neck collar/mantle, a similar style of which you see here, the Zulu Neckpiece; mine has a pleated ribbon edge so it looks like an Elizabethan Ruff.
There are also puff sleeved boleros and amazing neck collars, buckled industrial tops and burlesquey mini skirts:
