Vintage Streetstyle

So if The Sartorialist had been snapping his amazing shots in the 1940’s, I reckon this could be the kind of thing he’d have photographed..

I’m always aware and intrigued by the parallels between our contemporary styles and the vintage versions. I absolutely adore the 1920’s and the 40’s. Don’t you just love vintage fashion? Which is your favourite era?

Weekend Escape

Good Morning! As an antidote to it being Monday, how about an excursion to one of my favourite inspirational sites, The Coveteur. Ever wonder what is packed in the weekend travel bags of some of Vogue’s stylish editors, photographers, and designers? The Coveteur team photographed these holiday ensembles and I absolutely love the colour and energy of each of these!

This quote by Dries Van Noten, taken from The Coveteur site, sums it all up: “It’s more interesting to have just a picture of a small detail – then you can dream all the rest around it. Because when you see the whole thing, what is there to imagine?”.

Don’t you agree with that sentiment when you see fantastic shots like these? Now start imagining where these fabulously stylish people are off to on their vacations…
