Brocade/Gothic Trend- Net-A-Porter

The brocade and Gothic trend has been so huge that Net-A-Porter could not have a better selection of pieces from Lanvin, Dolce & Gabanna, Gucci... you name it. I've rounded up a few of the most show-stopping pieces.

Lanvin- jewel-embellished scuba-jersey dress, £5,195. This is no ordinary dress, the embellishments seriously sparkle and the amount is just incredible.

Dolce & Gabbana- Emebllished velvet dress, £8,505. The black and gold combination here is divine. It seems like such a theatrical and classic piece brought to life with the velvet.

Dolce & Gabbana- Lace-up suede and stretch ankle boots- £665.00. These use the Gothic trend subtlety enough so that the boots can be worn from day to night. The lace up details are adorable.

Prabal Gurung- embellished mesh and feather silk-organza top, £5,070.
Probably the most spectacular, eye-catching piece and I'd expect no less from Prabal. The feathers are so gorgeous, I love the way this piece combines 3 rich materials together in such a sophisticated way that a dress is not needed to make a show-stopping look, this can be combined with black trousers to create the whole look.

Gucci- 18-karat rose gold, diamond and onyx earrings, £6,710. These earrings would be the perfect finishing touch to any Gothic look with the black onyx stone and the gold spikes dangling down. It's equally as elegant with the diamonds.
