Medieval-inspired fashions offer a whimsical European edge

Implications - Fashion consistently takes cues from the past, and the Middle Ages is one period in which designers are increasingly looking for inspiration. Runways and editorials are showcasing everything from chain mail accoutrements to armor-like apparel, and just as the Middle Ages represented a divergence from classical learning, so too do today's Medieval inspirations represent a desire to break apart from the more classic, conservative apparel prevalent in recent fashion.
