As most of you know winter is not my favorite season of year so I tried to spark my winter mood with some wine and cheese or by travelling to cozy cities but it was all in vain. I came to the conclusion that the sea and sun are like a battery for my body and mind.
I thought this feeling was something I created as an excuse for an extra vacation … But nope, it’s the vitamin D actually reaching level zero … But what does that have to do with vintage and retro? NOTHING or almost nothing because it is in the winter that I can truly experiment with my favorite style; the vintage retro style.
Vintage & Retro , the most glamorous and inspiring style from my point of view and one that is getting stronger in trends. But what is the difference between those styles?
Retro style, in French term ‘’retrospectif ‘’ that means out of fashion, which is not part of the current trendy, the vast majority is inspired by what have been wear in the 70’s and 80’s, or of originally pieces of this time that are in good condition. Retro is a retelling of the previous decades.
Retrô Look :
Wide-leg plissé pant – Pull&Bear
Transparent longVest- Pull&Bear
Lurex Glitter Crop Top -Pull&Bear
Retro fascinates me with they pin ups in the years 50 and 60 with a kind of seductive and naïve touch of modernity it is much easier to play with this fashion style doing a mix of pieces in the same way.
Skirt – Gold Metallic Plissé – New Yorker
Jacket- Velvet-Toggle military – Zara
Boots- Gold ankle boots – H&M
Vintage pieces are from the decades 1920-1960 all in original state, old Portuguese term that refers to the known port wine, over the years this word was entering in the world of fashion, design etc, setting a piece of a style that belongs to another era, in English its means ” harvesta wine”, giving us an idea of the more ancient the “harvest”, the better the quality.
In addition to metallic skirt, this divine vintage Coat what I call “my vintage bear” is the other part that turned my winter uniform. I found it at Carnaby Street , its a traditional Vintage shop in the famous Albert Cuypmarket, with unique pieces.
This Coat is the French commercial maker Tissavel, in which I mentioned in one of my first posts about Fake Fur “Moda Compassiva” where the fur coats since 1950 have become commercially available.
Thank you Imanologie for the photoshoot. It was super fun.
