From its origins in the eighteenth-century literature of terror to its contemporarymanifestations in vampire fiction, cinema and art, the gothic has embraced thepowers of horror and the erotic macabre. ‘Gothic’ is an epithet with a strangehistory—evoking images of death, destruction and decay. Ironically, its negativeconnotations have made the gothic an ideal symbol of rebellion for a wide rangeof cultural outsiders. Popularly associated with black-clad teenagers and rock musicians, gothic fashion encompasses not only subcultural styles (from old-school goth to cyber-goth and beyond) but also high fashion by such designers asAlexander McQueen, John Galliano of Christian Dior, Rick Owens, OlivierTheyskens and Yohji Yamamoto. As the text and lavish illustrations in this boosuggest, gothic fashion has deep cultural roots that give it an enduring potency.

From Wonder Woman’s satin stars and golden bracelets to Batman’s brooding capeand mask, the style of superheroes’ dress has influenced both street wear and highfashion. This richly illustrated book explores how radical couture, avant-gardesportswear and state-of-the-art military garments—as seen through the lens of thesuperhero—can be metaphors for sex, power and politics. Beginning with theorigins of the superhero costume, this volume looks at how designers have beeninfluenced by iconographic components such as the cape, mask, boots and unitard.Costumes, such as those worn by Batman and Catwoman, are examined asreflections of sexual and physical prowess, while others, most notably those of Superman and Captain America, are analysed as political propaganda.
