Vintage Sunday – the 80s take II.

Last week I was reminiscing about the 80s. It was an era that gave us Flash dance, Rubic’s cube and neon – that has made a great comeback. We watched Dynasty and listened to Madonna and New Kids on The Block (at least I did..).
But today let’s concentrate more on the fashion. The only cover I could find from 1981 – the year I was born – was August issue of Vogue with Princess Diana who just got married to Charles. Wasn’t she pretty?!
Towards the end of the 80s the supermodels have started to appear. As you can see Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford were among the first. Claudia, Stephanie and more followed. They all looked very fresh faced no? What is your favourite memory/thing that came out of the 80s?
Have a stylish day.

Vintage Sunday – the 80s

Today’s Vintage Sunday post was inspired by my recent obsession with the 80s. I was born in 1981 so lived through most of it, although I obviously don’t remember it all. But there was something about that era no? I mostly love the music and have been listening to it a lot lately – hence this post. From Madonna, Michael Jackson through Eurythmics, U2 to Chicago, Reo Speedwagon and many more, didn’t the 80s just sound great. I have to admit the clothes weren’t that amazing but it’s fun to look at it and reminisce.
I found this Vogue cover from the 80s with Linda Evangelista on the it. As mentioned many times before, she was one of my favourite ‘supers’. Mainly for her constant hair changes. I love a bit of a change.
I love the colour combo and simplicity of the cover.
What was your 80s favourite model/singer/movie/song..? I think I’ll get back to this again because as Calvin Harris says.. “I’ve got love for you if you were born in the 80s..” 😉
Have a stylish day.

Vintage Sunday – Miss Pink in the making

Today’s Vintage Sunday post I slightly different.. The photograph above is vintage that’s for sure. The photographer is no one famous, but my dad and the little Miss Pink in the making would be me and styled by me too 🙂 I am wearing a pink polo shirt that my mum bought me on her trip to Vienna, therefore it was extra special. I believe I was around six.
Have a stylish day.

Vintage Sunday – Paolo Roversi

Few days ago I found out, that I missed an exhibition of Paolo Roversi in London, which finished in March. I’m disappointed as he’s one of my favourite fashion photographers, so to celebrate his work I decided to dedicate him today’s Vintage Sunday post. This amazon picture of Laetitia Casta just spoke to me, when I was trying to pick something. His work is amazing and this is definitely a good example of it. More on my tumblr.

Greek designers in London exhibition

Last week (on the last day) I managed to go and see the Greek designers in London exhibition and it was great. We were allowed to take pictures and I took loads to share with you. You can see some more on my tumblr and FB page. The amazing contemporary designers displayed there were Marios Schwab, Mary Katrantzou and Sophia Kokosalaki, you can read about some of the older ones in my Vintage Sunday post.
Have a stylish day.

Vintage Sunday by Jean Dessés

On Thursday afternoon I went to see the Greek designers exhibition I told you about before and I’m going to write about it more next week and apart from the modern designers like Mary Katrantzou and Marios Schwab they displayed some stuff of the older ones as well.
One of them was Jean Dessés and other than his actual creations, you could see these beautiful drawings he did of his designs. I thought they were very pretty and perfect for Vintage Sunday post. The Greek designer moved to Paris in 1924, where he started own couture house in 1937. In 1946 he created the Laroche Institute together with Guy Laroche.
He died in 1970 and the label with him, but there was a big interest in his clothes again with the boom of vintage clothing and celebrities like Naomi Campbell and Renee Zelweger wore his creations to big events.
Have a stylish day.

Vintage Sunday by Annie Leibovitz

The way I came to make today’s Vintage Sunday post was anything but straightforward. Usually when I prepare this post, I want to include some recent news and fit it somehow in the past. I was thinking about Stefano Pilati and how I’m sad he’s left Yves Saint Lauren. Don’t get me wrong I’m sure Hedi Slimane who’s replacing him will do great, but I still feel sorry for Pilati and I hope he’s going to find a great new job soon or will start his own fashion label. Thinking about all of this I remembered how sad and shocked I was when Tom Ford left YSL and Gucci. Tom Ford is my favourite designer ever and this is how the story came about. I was going to post about his era for YSL, but I found this amazing editorial starring beautiful Natalia Vodianova shot by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue, interpreting Alice in Wonderland in a very clever and unusual way.
Above we have Alice falling into the rabbit’s (Tom Ford) hole wearing YSL Rive Gauche by the designer.
Below you can see Olivier Theyskens and Natalie in his design for Rochas, Karl Lagerfeld and his Chanel Haute Couture creation, Christian Lacroix and Haute Couture dress by him, Stephen Jones who wears a custom-made hat of his own design, Dior Haute Couture by John Galliano, Alexis Roche, Atelier Versace dress and Donatella Versace and Rupert Everett all playing different parts in the story. Awesome editorial, no?
Have a stylish day.
