Sixties vibes seemed to permeate the vast majority of collections during the Autumn/Winter 2014 shows. It is only natural, I suppose, that I have therefore been drawn to 1960s pieces in my vintage shopping of late – both for items for my store and clothing for me.
The monochromatic colourways advocated at Saint Laurent paired with cat-eye liner flicks and block heels have been particularly influential and I promise to move forth to sporting a fedora as the weather turns. Also, my outer wear choices, as we well and truly move into autumn temperatures, have been dictated a little by Prada. I have attempted to pay homage to the structure and texture of their much coveted shearling ‘car coats’ with a vintage Persian lamb and mink creation. The colours may not be as bold, but the silhouette is similar.
My 1960s costume jewellery pieces by Trifari and Jorgen Jensen in brushed silver and modernist designs seem to complement the pieces inspired by their decade of manufacture that I have paired them with.
I hope you enjoy these looks.
