BLAST FROM THE PAST



VINTAGE DRESS / TOPSHOP KNEE LENGTH BOOTS / PRADA SUNNIES / CARAVELLE WATCH / NORDENSTAM RINGS

It is always so good to be back in Copenhagen. And whilst fashion weeks all over have been shouting the sartorial message of the 70s, someone arrived in her one decade off vintage dress. Well knowing of this, as I stood in an East End vintage shop in London last week, my heart couldn't help but go soft for this Mary Quant-esque dress. I love how vintage allows us to enter a different age, as well as contemporary fashion keeping on referencing back to well-known, classical staple pieces. And although it is probably a rather good thing, that the mini has become slightly less mini, there still is nothing like the real thing.
I went to an amazing roundtable talk called the Fireside Chat during the Fashion Week in Stockholm, discussing the future of fashion and the garments we wear, with a reference to some of the worldly challenges we are faced with as a global community. And although we might be waiting for more political governing forces to act upon this, it's undeniable that we as users and consumers are the drops that make out the ocean. This might seem a bit uneasy to relate to at first, but I am so eager to share more of what I learnt at this amazingly inspiring talk with you. You guessed it; vintage, and passing on unloved garments is one of the things we can do to affect the cycle, and contemporary fashion keeps reminding us, that to be on the notes, it doesn't always matter whether your dress is from today or 40 years ago. Now that's pretty cool, hey?

HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY

  17. I am definitely a fun of the all in black outfits, I wish there was another pic of that dress just from the front view.
    I agree with the vintage think. I will like to have something from like 50/80 years ago... that will be cool.

  18. It is actually since I started reading your blog that I started visiting Vintage shops! And since then I've made incredible discoveries! This dress look a lot like the ones from Prada's current collection!
