Maybe it’s because I’ve finally got round to watching the series, spent the other night at a season 4 screening and am currently wearing a HOUSE STARK t-shirt, but every single autumn/winter 14 collection seems to reference Game of Thrones. The fashions of Westeros and further afield made their way across time, space and imaginary worlds to 2014, and this excites me greatly. From the heavy, black, fur-filled wardrobes of the Night’s Watch to the opulent gold of Qarth; the night is dark and full of terrors, but designs like these make everything feel just fine.
Fluffy stuff is everywhere this season, and Vera Wang was no exception. On signing up to the Watch, lost boys must swear an oath to forever guard the wall, abstain from all things sexy and promise to only ever wear black. Both leather and feathery fur is key. Wang opted to cover the arms of this stunning creation in the latter, while Diesel Black Gold often went just for the hood – a classic crow look. Belts and straps are advantageous, but for the full bastard Snow outfit, add a direwolf and maybe a weapon or two.
