100 Ícones que Inspiraram a Moda 👄
Jane Mallory Birkin (Londres, 1946) é uma atriz e cantora inglesa que viveu na França e que emergeu na Swinging London após aparecer no filme Blow up de 1966.
Em 1969 conheceu Serge Gainsbourg e fizeram várias colaborações como o famoso dueto "Je t'aime... moi non plus"(que originalmente havia sido escrito para Brigitte Bardot). A música na época provocou um escândalo e foi banida em diversas rádios de diversos países.
As escolhas chamativas de Birkin em questão de moda - o minivestido diáfano em tricô, as calças transformadas em shorts, assim como o clássico trench coat e os sapatos sóbrios de salto baixo - fizeram dela uma inspiração para qualquer mulher estilosa. Ela é adorada por estilistas até hoje, por seu sex appeal desgrenhado e espontâneo: tão poderoso em um vestido de noite chique como em jeans e camiseta justa.
Da franja reta que se tornou sua marca registrada aos olhos amendoados e as pernas quilométricas, sua beleza era uma mistura extraordinária de Lolita inocente com femme fatale lânguida.
A famosa e desejada Birkin Bag, da Hermès, foi desenhada em sua homenagem. Conta que Jane Birkin sentou-se ao lado de Jean-Louis Dumas, que na época era CEO da Hermès, em um vôo de Paris para Londres. Atrapalhada, deixou tudo cair da sua bolsa de palha ao tentar colocá-la no compartimento de bagagem. O resto é história: Jean-Louis se ofereceu para desenhar um modelo que unisse tudo o que a cantora imaginava numa bolsa ideal. Espaçosa, com alças resistentes e que pudesse ficar aberta o tempo todo.

Episode 31: From Russia with Love: Valentina⠀
Valentina’s theatrical and dance training in her youth informed her considerable finesse at modeling her own designs. Seen here in Vogue in 1943 modeling a heart-shaped pillbox hat with diamonds. The diamond and emerald maltese cross brooch worn just above her navel was a treasured piece she wore nearly everyday, reportedly even sometimes on her swimsuit.⠀

Gertrude, 41. I did not choose to be a Benedictine sister, I was an oblate. This means I was given to a covent by my parents to be brought up as a nun. No, I do not remember them... God is my only family. I want to devote my life to serve our Lord Jesus Christ, to spend a life of prayer, work, and silence. (Eisleben, Germany, 1297)

Happy Birthday Twiggy!
Twiggy, born Lesley Hornby, was one of the defining faces of London’s swinging ’60s and is widely considered to be one of the world’s first supermodels. Twiggy was initially known for her thin build (thus her nickname) and her androgynous look consisting of big, round eyes, long eyelashes, and short hair- a boyish cut she received at age 15 from a hairdresser named Nigel Davies (now known as Justin de Villeneuve). Davies called the then-teenager Twigs because of her waifish frame, though it was a 1966 article in The Daily Express that described her as Twiggy.
By the time she was 17, Twiggy was one of the most famous faces in the world, a British cultural icon. She went on to grace the covers of magazines like Vogue, Tatler and ELLE. Immortalized in Andy Warhol prints and having worked with the iconic David Bowie, Twiggy has spent 50 years at the forefront of fashion.
She went on to find some success as a singer ― she released a single called “Beautiful Dreams” in 1967 ― was nominated for a Tony award in 1983, and also went on to act in various film and TV roles.
On Sept. 19, the supermodel celebrates her 69th birthday. As my way of showing my appreciation for Twiggy’s effect on the fashion world, I’m looking back at her style through the years. Scroll to check out some of Twiggy’s most iconic looks, from her classic ’60s shift dresses to her 80’s glam style and everything in between. #twiggy #davidbowie #andywarhol #iconicmodel #vintagefashionlover #vintagegirl #fashionrevival #vintagelove #vintagefinds #vintagefacts #vintagedesign #vintagelife #vintagewear #vintageclothes #vintagefashion #iconicmodel #vintageaccessories #vintage

Painted silk banner from the Ma Wang Dui complex, located in Changsa, China. The significant archaeological site, a hill shaped like a saddle (indeed Ma Wang means “King of Horses”), dates back to the western Han Dynasty (206 BC - 9 AD). _
The banner depicts the three realms, the underworld, the earth and the heavenly realm.
In July, we posted about the fabulous Harriet Lake's passing. We were saddened by that news, so we perked up a bit when we saw that there's a forthcoming book about Orlando's own fashionista philanthropist! The book is called 'Too Much is Not Enough: The History in Harriet's Closet', and the release party is on September 27th at @orlandoshakes.
Harriet and the authors – Kristina Tollefson and Jodi Ozimek – were working on this book for the last 11 years!
Through personal and vintage photos, lush photography exemplifying Harriett’s signature styles, and quotes from the brassy, big-hearted grand dame herself, you will be awed by the magnitude of her wardrobe and magnanimity of this exceptional woman. This unique fashion biography begins with Harriett’s childhood during the Great Depression, follows her service as a Marine during WWII, her flight from heartbreak to Miami Beach and subsequent marriage, and their accumulation of wealth (and swelling closet full of jaw-dropping fashion) thanks to the Disney World triggered 1960s real estate boom and the community defining land deals of her developer husband.
Stunningly illustrated with over 800 impeccable photographs illustrating her 96-year life and highlighting over 200 of her favorite and most popular looks, the authors explain the connections between Harriett’s life experiences and her fashion choices. Find out why she has so many red coats, why capes are one of her favorite looks, and what fills her pockets. Harriett herself oversaw the photo-shoots and expertly styled every look so that each one is quintessential Harriett.

FOR SALE—Reshot and relisted is this hump day’s #tieoftheday
, an immaculate geometric silk foulard from Sulka, c.1950s. When the Times’ Anne-Marie Schiro wrote in 1985 that "Nothing from Sulka ever goes out of style," surely she meant luxury items such as this necktie. While some of the company’s designs are very much part of the eras in which they were designed and made, the simplicity and conservative design of this tie is truly one that looks as good now as it did then, and will continue to do so for decades more to come. Truly exceptional vintage condition, reinforced neckband as typical of Sulka ties; 54.25”x3.25”. (Please see eBay link in profile or DM for details.)
