LOOKS TO STUNT IN ON HALLOWEEN

I’ve never much been one for Halloween. I don’t particularly enjoy actively seeking out the feeling of horror or jumping out of shady alleyways to frighten others, to me that feels like more of a… Caucasian luxury (#shadenoshade). Or maybe it was my dad making me watch all of The Exorcist as a kid while my siblings laughed at my terror and the room spun uncontrollably and their jeering faces and pointed fingers blurred into a fever dream of endlessly reverberating screams? What I obviously do enjoy however, is being extra. Here are a few looks that you can literally look sickening in on this hallowed eve of the dead.

If you, like me, have always wanted to be Walter: now’s your chance. This particular piece may be referring to the New York casting agent and not the bearded designer icon, but who reads the fine print?

Literally anything by 9-1 PPM

This young and cryptic Parisian brand is all about the weird and no one will come for or to you in one of their looks, unless they’re genuinely into that sort of thing. Then you’ll have some unexpected choices to make.

If you can get your hands on this SS14 couture ‘Artisanal’ Maison Margiela dress, you can totally be that dude from Pan’s Labyrinth. As Tyra would say: ‘Blood-curdling demon, but then make it fashion.’

No one would not feel a resounding chill if you gave them a come-hither stare in this cap.

Alessandro never holds back and Halloween is certainly not the day to start doing so either. At €8K, this plumetis tulle and raw silk serpentine frock twirls decidedly on the pricey side of the spectrum but Morticia gets what Morticia wants.

The Saint Laurent shag 

See, this model gets it. If you’re in Saint Laurent shearling, you’re supposed to stare forlornly at a distant corner. For added creepiness, you can pretend to be throwing shade with the ghost of Yves.

Glue-gun it!

If all else fails, you can always just do it yourself. Miss Melania Chavarria made her own Galliano for Maison Margiela look for this year’s Halloween and it’s everything really.

Now that you’ve got your look sorted, you’ll need the ultimate soundtrack to blast through the Beats Pill you’re making your friend enter the function five steps before you with. Or at least some music to get your pulse racing before you venture out into the misty cold. Here’s what Stefaan has hand-picked for you:

Il Suono Scuro: 6 mixtapes made exclusively out of horror soundtracks. Risk factor: might accidentally attract bearded vinyl bores drinking craft beer from vintage jars while fiddling with their pomade-groomed facial hair.

Or, if you don’t mind getting a bit weirder: this half hour mix of intros and outros on satanic metal records. Risk factor: might accidentally turn the neighbour’s baby into Satan’s spawn, looking at you accusingly from its pram through freakishly bright yellow goat-eyes.

You’re good to go. Happy hexing, no blackface, be safe, byeee!
