    [​IMG]Taking the vintage trip a step further, fashion houses like Louis Vuitton and designers like Dries Van Notten, DVF and :doh: Donna Karan, got inspired by Hitchcock heroines, polka dots and peep toe shoes, turning the 50's mood a step further for spring summer 03.[​IMG]


    Prada, miu miu, Dries Van Notten, BCBG, Armani and Galliano - signature line- to name a few, take the nostalgic mood into in a new level, incorporating 40s details, vintage-y winter prints and cinematic old school sexiness for the coming season.
    Nick Knight is shooting the Pirelli calendar in a refreshed pin-up mood.

    what do you think?
    are you ready for the sexy secretary?
    fake preppy queen look?
    i've read Hollywood is working on the remake of Greaze :shock:

    easy trend for me, since so much of my wardrobe is comprised of this stuff anyway - full pleated skirts, a-lines, cardis, and so forth. :) preppy vintage.

    but no grease remakes, please. :doh: :yuk:

    I kind of like it. Return of the lady, hopefully. :wacko: I loved Hitchcock and his heroines. You could be sexy without showing off all your assets. ;)

    As for the Grease remake = :yuk:. Can't we just leave the classics alone?

    I do like vintage, but I'm not sure about the 50s styles. They don't seem to suit me. :cry: Grease wasn't the word for me :lol: , but honestly I can't imagine anyone apart from John Travolta in the male lead.

    I do love the 40s look though, and I would love to see some 40s influences.

    Exactly, I kind of like the Hitchcock connection and I feel it might get teens out of the '80s black hole.
    Prada had some great late '50s pieces for winter :heart:

    I think the trend comes as a reaction to those boring '80s slutty looks that have been around for ages now. It could also be the mainstream reaction to the never ending ride of vintage chic with a twist.

    The look sure needs a great dose of humour and personal style.

    here something from miu miu :heart:

    "return of the lady"... again??? Can't say I mind BUT it's just recycling from Spring/Fall of a couple of years ago.

    Can't wait to see "Down With Love", should be plenty of 50's & 60's/ladylike inspiration there!!

    I think the 50's trend is GENIUS!!!!!! I bought a pair of black peep toe shoes at the local salvation army for 2.99!!

    I'm taking the polka-dot a little further, though. I making two ulta mini's with ruffled bottoms. REALLLY CUTE! I saw a couple in teen vogue...about $250 a piece. :cry: My mom is an awesome "sew- er". So, we went to the fabric store..got some patterns and black polka dot on a pink backround and hot pink backround with white polka dot fabrics. Totaling a whopping $20!! Two skirts plus extra fabric!! Woo hoo!!! :woot:

    I like the look of some fifties styles. I have a great dress from sometime late fifties/early sixties that is demure yet very sexy, which I like.
    I agree that it is more lady like and while I have no problem with in-your-face styling, for me this innocent/sexy style works much better.

    Thanks for posting this topic :heart:
