High fashion now comes in a decidedly fantasy-inspired flare!
The cuts remind me of some Game of Thrones designs, the movie Troy (or vaguely of ancient Greek styles in general) and the European high middle ages or the Bysantine Empire. The luxurious combination of black and gold harks back to the late middle ages / Tudors / Reformation. The sheer fabrics put these squarely in the modern period, though.

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
