Women’s Wear Daily today featured the amazing Gucci dress below, as seen on the runway for the label’s 2013 spring ready-to-wear collection. When I clicked through to the other photos from the collection, I spotted a throwback trend I’m excited to see coming back: The 1970s-era, post-space age, often monochromatic, tunic pants suit. Very Charlie’s Angels. Very Bianca Jagger. Page down for more on that. I feel a vintage pants suit post coming on. Stay tuned, disco queens.
This unexpected discovery is one of the reasons we love The Financial Times “How to Spend It” special issue. Designed for Marios Schwab‘s 2013 resort collection, this vintage-inspired swimsuit is made from terry cloth or “toweling” fabric with high-waist bottoms, sort of reminiscent of the 1950s, particularly when paired with the matching jacket cover-up (second photo below). For more retro beachwear looks, check out the rest of the Financial Times “How to Spend It” fashion section here.
Those of you who follow This Week’s Look know how much we covet vintage André Courrèges. That’s why this week we are thrilled to show you this rare 1960s Courrèges two-tone mod/space age dress. Look at that hand-written label, custom designed for Bonwit Teller. Just unbelievable. This dress is everything you would expect from a 1960s Courrèges, simple structure, clean lines, and very expensive (but the seller is accepting offers).
