Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Combining 1980’s  love for asymmetry and royal blue, this deadstock gown by Alyce Designs is in a timeless empire cut with a sheer, diaphanous overlay of what could be called “raining roses”.   The flower motif adds tons of visual interest and glitz for the gown’s intended purpose as formalwear.  As with many of the “true” hues, royal blue looks good with several skin tones and hair colors.    Most of all, this is a unique piece and has never been owned before!  Click here for more views and sizing information.

Shiny blue 1960’s men’s suit

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

While many stylish 60’s clothes come through Monster Vintage and many of them remind us of Mad Men, this is the first time a suit has so clearly spoken the name of the character Pete Campbell.  His character routinely wears blue throughout the show, especially in the early seasons, and it’s easy to see why: This is a beautiful color.   It’s a sapphire blue with a faint black contrast, yet it has a sheen in the light.  The cut is relaxed and roomy in the jacket, with cuffs at the ankles on the pants.  Made by Alton Ames Clothes of Distinction and sold by Foreman and Clark, purveyors of fine men’s suits.   Click here for more views and sizing details.
