The 1950's in High Fashion

Well it's about that time......I'm pretty sure most of you fellow fashion-mavens have already read the newest editions of this seasons high fashion magazines, and what I am about to share is probably nothing new.  I think we all get a little excited come September, not only for the cooler weather (in my case), but of course for a change in fashion too!. The change of fashion into Fall & Winter- which allow me wear my favorite coats & hats, and well frankly I live in Arizona. So any chance that there might be cooler temperatures on the horizon, is relieving news for me. This happy feeling of anticipation for Fall, goes hand in hand with the fun of taking a peek into the pages of the fashion magazines. A pastime in the world of fashion if you will. Since the early days of fashion publications & catalog's.

Not that I could actually afford anything that is for sale on the runway these days. I just have an interest in viewing the seasons new collections, styles, and amazing work of Art Directors, Designers, & Stylists in the ad campaigns. Vogue, Harper's Bazaar & Glamour magazine mostly all have the same high fashion ads in their publications, but the first time I saw Louis Vuitton's fall collection was in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar. The cover has Jennifer Aniston, beautifully re-creating an image of Barbara Streisand.

I get especially excited when the seasons styles incorporate an appreciation for an era of fashion in the past. In this case, Louis Vuitton's fall collection has beautifully represented a taking to the classic, sophisticated, feminine 1950's! Complete with mid-calf full skirts in plaid wool for casual, and luxurious satins for glamming it up. He even took into the details of exhibiting the classic red, blonde & brunette heads into his advertising campaign, I love it! Well done Vuitton team! Oh ya! and I almost forgot to mention the fabulous dressing room set they created!

Even though I have been wearing the mid-calf skirts and sweaters of the 1950's, long before they were on the high fashion runway, and you can bet-cha bottom dollar, I will still be wearing them long after they are yesterday's news. I am still extremely delighted to see an appreciation for, and bringing back of the glorious 1950's influence in mainstream fashion. Even if it is for just a short time!

 I have attached the link to view all of  Louis Vuitton's 1950's inspired, fall collection- fashions from the runway!

Is anybody else excited about this collection? What are your thoughts?



  1. I absolutely love it, apart from the brunette nearly busting out of her dress. (Maybe I'm a prude though).

    I am opposite you, in the fact that I don't really like it when vintage styles hit the mainstream, because I don't like being perceived as a fashion follower. I should probably stop giving a damn what other people think about me though!

  2. Hehe, I'm with you Ruby Rach! I like to be different. ;] But I know that, when the true fashion followers move on to the next trend, I'll still be wearing what I've always loved.

    Meanwhile, I'm excited for the change of seasons, too - only I'm looking forward to it warming up. ;]

  3. ooh laa laa!
    your blog makes my insides happy!
    the pretty pictures are so grand!

  4. Thanks for your feedback dolls!

    I think it is safe to say that we are all secure in our love for vintage clothing, that we know we will still be incorporating vintage clothing into our personal styles, long after they leave the main-stream.

    I used to feel the same way about seeing vintage styles in the mainstream Ruby, but I think I have grown to change my perception over the years, knowing that I am not per-say a trendy high fashion follower, but love to see the styles of clothing that I am fond of, being appreciated to a certain extent. So technically that wouldn't make you a fashion follower, because you love the period or type of fashion whether or not it's in style.

    Also, knowing that not everyone feels the same way I do, and that people will move onto the next trend,while the things I love and who I am, will always reflect in my personal style. Your absolutely right, you should not give a damn what anyone else thinks, only what makes you happy and confident!


  5. I'm going to do a post on this soon - it's always interesting when a vintage style comes back into the mainstream, the purists will be weeping! But anything that gets people away from jeggings is a good thing in my view!

    Always fabulous to see Karen Elson anyway, and I adore the dress she's wearing in this ad.

  6. I am also very excited about this collection. It's about time there was a 1950's revival in mainstream fashion. But as you say, there will be many of us out there who will continue to don our full skirts and red lipstick long after the the current magazines gather dust!

  7. I love this collection too it's great comeback and women in this looks just beautiful, very nice site, and love your style, hugs and New Year's wishes


  8. I tend not to leave a response, however after reading a lot of responses here "The 1950's in High Fashion".
    I actually do have some questions for you if it's okay. Is it just me or do some of these remarks look like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I'd like to keep up with
    you. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your social sites like your Facebook page,
