Yes, we are loving the sunshine…blue skies….warm water.Â But that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited over a little Fall fashion…after all, it’s coming! How can we begrudge the return to jeans when they look so irresistibly chic with a Virginia Slims 70s suede jacket?Â How can we complain about socks when there are such great […]
The #ClicquotMail Truck rolled off the boat and on to Nantucket in July–first stop, currentVintage! It was a flurry of fun as we popped the corks on Vintage RosÃ© & La Grande Dame 2004 and posed for photos with the VC photo booth.Â That was just the warm up, as the next day, currentVintage staged […]
Our last post featured highlights from the currentVintage Galley Beach & Veuve Clicquot “Wish You Were Here” Fashion Show… However, can there really be too manyÂ photos of beautiful girls (and a guy) in fabu vintage fashions on a beach?!Â Really??
Why we love fashion:Â it’s ability to transport and elevate via expression of creativity in the face of almost any political and economic reality. I don’t really remember much about 1994 but I do recall this photo.Â Those were the Clinton years and I believe things were just beginning to feel like they were on […]
This photo haunts me and has haunted me since I flipped open that issue of Vogue in 2009.Â The esprit de youth mixed with beauty, $ and the brink of fame is a potent cocktail.Â This is my mindseye reference to joie de vivre.
Not surprisingly, I have always wanted to live in a Slim Aarons photo.Â Not surprisingly, because that was the point of Slim’s picture perfect documentation of the beautiful life. This 1970 series of a pool party in Palm Springs is just the beautiful life I long to inhabit–with a name like Helen Dzo Dzo and […]
I came across a photo archive of Elizabeth Taylor recently.Â While it began with recent years and looked backward, I prefer to focus on the beautiful shots of her in the 60s…this one, in particular.Â Not the ingenue or widow or aging starlet, but a confident, worldly woman, for whom there were few things that […]
Veuve Clicquot brunch on Nantucket…Beautiful girls (and guy) in beautiful dresses (and jackets) in a most beautiful setting…sigh. photos courtesy of model Jane Conway
On Friday, July 20, 2012, currentVintage did a fashion show for A Safe Place in the garden of a beautiful Sconset home on Nantucket Island.Â Our chic vintage fashions for men and women were paired with hats form Peter Beaton.Â As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words… Photos by: Kris Kinsley Hancock/nantucketpix.com […]
Rudi Rudi Rudi…I like to say Rudi three times fast, not unlike Barney Phife. And there are at least three things that you probably already know about controversial 1960s designer Rudi Gernreich.Â His muse was the raccoon-eyed gamine Peggy Moffitt.Â He’s the one that created the “Monokini” (think topless) swimsuit–see iconic photo of Peggy below.Â […]
