Love the COMMON by Common Affairs, bomber jacket the girl on the right is wearing. Probably the best one I’ve seen yet since the Markaware, and Helmut Lang one from years back. There are so many ma-1 bomber style jackets coming out these few years, yet so little actually look nice, in my opinion at least.
Thanks you so much for your kind. words about our Arvid Bomber jacket. Its one of our favourite pieces and one which we have had in our collection for 4 seasons now. The girl to the right is doing it so much justice, we simply love her style.
thinking what’s happening in menswear is a more influential force in fashion right now than women’s….vis a vis this 50′s look observation of yours. 50′s, viewed through the nostalgic lense of the 70′s/ 80′s
From an old fart who was around during the 50s: the blouse on the woman on viewers’ left appears 50s-ish and certainly the anklets on the right are a trimmer reflection of the bobby socks that were worn w straight legged – but not tight – cuffed jeans (so proportionately right for the current tight jeans). Otherwise, there are echoes from parts of the mid-60s into about 1967 or so pictured here more than from the 50s.
we recently put in our steam shower unit, greatest item I have got a hold of in a long while, children and family
think it’s great, simply cannot see myself heading back to conventional showers anymore
This did not look so very 50′s to me, and I tried to think what was missing. I think in the 50′s we had the look of the “tough girl” but mixed somehow with an innocence. The tight jeans and loafers would often be worn with a fuzzy sweater with a crisp collar that buttoned on. And the big jacket belonged to your boyfriend.
The girl on the left in the denim jacket has such a wonderful beautiful face. And even besides her own beauty there’s some uncanny resemblance in her face, hair, poise to Sandrine Bonnaire; especially Sandrine in A Nos Amours and also Vagabond. Something ephemeral around the eyes. So many things about this girl, especially the way she does her hair, epitomize the assuredness in their own beauty that the best French girls have. The ones that make everyone think “ooh, French!” when encountering that same bearing wherever they meet it. I hope to God I end up with a girl that has some of her traits.
To me, this isn’t really 50′s. It’s more 80′s (albeit the 80′s take on the fifties). It reminds me of the Buffalo/Jamie Morgan look, the loafers, the short denim and bomber jacket, the turn ups. I really like it but then it reminds me of my youth…
