Metamorphose's Moonlight Night

With Autumn and Winter just a few months away brands have been gearing up and busting out some pieces that are a bit more Gothic and Classic than normal. Metamorphose has really blown me away with their newest print for reserve, Moonlight Night. It's a very simple looking print, sort of their answer to Moitie's Iron Gate, with a bronze gate print on either a black or ivory background.


The print is filled with a few classic Meta symbols, including fleur-de-lis, winged crosses, and twin swans. But, as is typical with Metamorphose, they are only releasing the print images and drawings of the future dresses, so you're going to have to use your imagination a bit to see what they are going to look like.


The skirt in this series is the only piece that has a photo of the finished product. It has a relatively simple design, which is perfect with a print like this.






The dress and JSK, on the other hand, have no finished photos are and are a bit more complicated than the skirt, making me a little wary of what the finished pieces might look like. The possibility of the print clashing badly with the design aside, the designs are both very pretty and have a very Metamorphose look to them. The dress especially with the attached choker and faux-corset details, which are both very old school looking details that Meta loves to cling to. I do wish that they had gone a bit simpler on the dress and JSK designs though! Meta seems to have a lot of fantastic ideas when it comes to designing dresses, but I feel like they should leave such elaborate designs to plain colored dresses, because all too often they end up looking like a bit too cluttered. But, then again, hot messes are sort of Metamorphose's trademarks.

While I have learned to wait for Metamorphose to release pictures of the finished dresses before I get overly excited and adding the dress to my dream dress wish list, I am optimistic about this print! Even if the skirt is the only piece that turns out to be the only good looking piece, it's still an incredible print on a perfect, if a bit simple, skirt.

What do you think of Metamorphose's newest designs? Are you sure that the finished pieces are going to be stunning? Or are you not holding your breath until you see the final pieces?

Edit: Chera has kindly pointed out that finished pictures of the dresses are up on Meta's English blog.



I'm actually surprised at just how lovely these dresses look with the print, despite how busy the design is! The JSK especially is just gorgeous! Oh Meta, you are tempting me, really badly.

  3. The print is cute in cream. The JSK & OP might look cute without the print, though I'm still not feeling them...

  4. I'm really liking where Meta is going with the single panel of print in front like they did with Twinkle Journey. But the faux corset makes me a little iffy, but other than that, the actually OP looks pretty nice.

    And I love this print so much too...

  5. I really want this skirt. It is beautiful. I have been falling in love with Meta a lot recently. I never thought I would say that...

  6. I take a look at the JSK and I think of stage curtains. But they're gorgeous. I just wish the bronze colour didn't disappear into the background. The dress is absolutely posi-smurf-ly beautiful. I can't wait to see the final pictures and drool over them. (And probably bust a hole in my wallet)

  7. I think the bottom of the print is lovely, but I don't really like the cloud-things that continue up the skirt/dress for some reason. I think it would look better wthout them, or if they were a bit bigger and wispier :S
    As for the dress designs, they look great, but I still think they would look better (less cluttered) without the clouds, or in a plain-colored fabric instead of a print.

  8. Oh yeah, I think these might be pictures of the finished dress/jsk.

    I think they look a lot better than I expected, though the top of the jsk is still a little busy.

  10. I agree! It's such a unique feature that ends up working out really well!

  11. I'm really liking the front panel print too. I think it gives you a little taste of print without overwhelming the dress. If the draped tulle overlay is detachable, I just might have to buy the JSK.

  13. Though lovely, the bodice on the second JSK is really REALLY REALLY busy, IMO. I love the way it looks and was half tempted to consider purchasing it but IDK the more I look at it the more it feels too OTT for me.

  14. It's cute, but I feel like the repeating small pattern is a bit much. I like Vampire Requiem better.

  15. I just wish the clouds looked a little more cloudy and less like random blotches. The OP is gorgeous though.

  16. i lveo the black corset op:3 i love the close up of the print but far away it makes it look very busy. I think this is the only dress i would buy brand new from the store :p

  20. Maybe it's the combination of the busy design, the black and silver print and the corset lacing, but the OP gives me vibes a bit reminiscent of some of h. Naoto Frill's designs. In a good way, though! I'd love to pair that with a high-necked, long-sleeved dark blue blouse, an old-school headdress and enormous platform mary-janes.
