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). Click on the images below to see the seller’s eBay listing. And click here to read more about the designer.

Warby Parker has done a lot for people that are both visually impaired and into vintage style. And their flat fee pricing (only $95 a pair) is quite revolutionary in the vision correction biz.  However, if you prefer authentic vintage frames as opposed to vintage-inspired frames, you can spend hours combing through junk on eBay and etsy or you can visit one of our favorite sources for optical quality vintage frames, Thayer Eyewear.

Thayer specializes in carefully curated 1950s cat eye glasses, 1960s squared zyl, rhinestone and embellished frames, high quality American and European frames from the 1800s to the 1990s, as well as dead stock ready-to-wear sunglasses. While some of Thayer’s stock is used, they also carry tons of dead stock/never worn frames, many of which are priced under $100.

Below are some of our favorite vintage frames as seen on Thayer Eyewear’s etsy storefront this week. Click on each image below to see the individual listing.

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.
