Crazy for Courrèges

with 2 comments

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).

A Curated Collection of Vintage Turbans

with one comment

Modern men and women are privileged to have access to an infinite variety of hair products to manipulate sad tresses into any imaginable shape. But our brave predecessors had far fewer options. Back then, a bad hair day could ruin your week. Back then, fashion was the only cure for deadly hair. Hats, snoods, beanies, scarves, buckets (in a pinch), and yes…turbans.

We have for you this week an expertly curated collection of sensational vintage turbans, all available right now from various sellers on eBay and etsy. Click on each image below to see the actual listing.

And if you’re thinking, “there’s no way I could ever pull off a vintage turban!” you’re most likely correct. Only those who fully appreciate the exalted turban deserve to wear one. So march on, sister. March on.

A Little Biased

This would be an amazing wedding gown for the bride who wants a glamorous vintage look. And even more stunning is the current bid on eBay; only $56. The auction ends in two days. This is an original 1930s bias cut silk gown with train. The open back is incredible and this cut splendidly whittles the waist. Click on the images below to see the full listing.
