This is a fashion experiment. Something that I tested to verify my theory based on which nothing in fashion is totally new but every “new” piece has a vision from the past, an inspiration from another era.
This experiment was an idea that I had when I saw this beautiful 80s vintage Luisa Spagnoli blazer from Opherty & Ciocci, a wonderful piece with has such a 40s shape that I thought: “What if I create a 40s inspired outfit with modern or 80s pieces?”
That’s what I did! I furtherly shaped the jacket (btw, if you can see the details of the fabric and buttons, they are amazing!) with a thrifted Dior Gaucho belt that I found in Capri many years ago in a luxury second hand shop when the Gaucho collection from Dior was just launched.
The color of the jacket was very similar to a pair of my favorite modern culottes from Please (I love them so much that I have them in two colors, camel and grey!) with a clear vintage twist that I realized how perfect they were together for my vintage experiment!
Once the core of the outfit was done, I decided to be very careful with the accessories. First thing to add: a 40s inspired turban! Not so difficult for me considering the number of turbans that I have, but this handmade golden piece with leaf decoration from Madame Ilary is definitely one of the most 40s inspired pieces that has a place in my wardrobe!
I stayed on the same golden tones for the earrings, a vintage 80s statement pair that I found in Barcelona last year in one of the loveliest vintage shops in town, Lullaby.
Last but not least, as I am not a fan of 40s mid-wedges and mid-heels I decided to give the outfit a little color shake with this pair of amazing aqua heeled ankle Chelsea boots from Ouigal: this is my third pair of Ouigal shoes this year, I am madly in love with their style and they are incredibly comfortable.
So, what do you think of my fashion experiment? Successful or not?
