A Nod to Mod

with 2 comments

This week we usher in the month of March in a modly mood, despite the disappointing fact that “modly” is not a word. But as the saying goes, rules are made to be broken. We have a monstrous, wildly bureaucratic justice system built on that very notion.

Back to March. You’re not really winter, you’re not really spring, you weird and wily month. We think you will agree, march is a much better verb than it is a noun. That’s why we’re going on a modly march this March. The first installment in our March nod to mod begins with the classic 1960s dress. This week, we curated for you a collection of the most exquisite vintage dresses on eBay, all still up for bid. Click on each image below to see the individual seller’s listing.

Matching neck and cuff ruffs trim this super mod, long-sleeve, Young Edwardian-like party frock. $350 on eBay.

Vintage 1960s color-block knit dress by the iconic Biba. Sailor-style, drop waist ribbed skirt with hip slung belt loops.

A Rare Courrèges Find

leave a comment »

This week on eBay we found this immaculate vintage (late-1960s) “Couture Future” space age dress by André Courrèges. For the uninitiated, André Courrèges is the self-proclaimed inventor of the mini-skirt who launched his ultra-modern ‘Space Age’ collection in 1964 and went on to become one of the most copied fashion designers of all time. Read my earlier post about the designer here. Click on the images below to see the seller’s eBay listing.

Fashion Files: The Goldworm Era

with 2 comments

As a collector of vintage Italian knitwear from the 1960s to 1970s, I can tell you that original Goldworm pieces are becoming more expensive and harder to find these days.

If you are unfamiliar with the label, it was founded in 1928 by Samuel and Gertrude Goldworm. The company partnered with clothing manufacturers in Italy during the knitwear boom in the 1960s and transformed itself into a purveyor of quality, wearable art. Identifiable by the iconic smiling gold worm on the label, original Goldworm pieces are highly collectible and would make a unique and timeless addition to your vintage wardrobe.

Below are some vintage Goldworm knits we found on eBay and etsy this week. Click on each image to see the listing.

Redux on the Runway

Prada debuted some fantastic 1960s inspired dresses for the label’s Fall 2011 collection. This little number below is one of my favorites; a dropped waist, almost schoolgirl frock, with a crisp, pleated skirt and low slung belt. I especially love the high, rounded neck and oversized buttons. I’m not crazy about how they styled the dress with those snakeskin boots. I would’ve chosen sleek, white mid-calf boots with a square toe instead, but then Prada surely would’ve been accused of copying André Courrèges.
