1940s Silohouettes Get Casual

From pure texturizing in the Spring, to Sexy cutouts with Donatella Versace, in a Versus collab, this time, JW Anderson looks towards the 1940s for inspiration. This time, Anderson gives the Classic and Elegant silhouettes of the decade, a bit more of a causal and modern feel. Perfectly wearable, then and now.

A Modern, Vintage Elegance

Shown at the Royal Institute of British Architects, with under 150 guests, Emilia Wickstead is definately one of the most exclusive shows of the season. Having dressed the likes of Kate Middleton, Wickstead takes inspiration from shows in 1940s Paris, having referred to detailed shots from Balenciaga’s archive, giving the look a feel that’s just, “so now.” As ankle length full skirts and dresses are just as key and obsessive as lace, peplum, and a basic Trenchcoat were. Now I won’t feel Amish if I ever wear my ankle length plaid skirt out and about, anytime soon.

Fairytales Get Dark

When most people think Fairytales, they think Cinderella and her Prince Charming, Snow White, Rapunzel, and Sleeping Beauty, wearing the most beautiful floral and frilly gowns. But when you think Fairytales at John Rocha, it may just be as dreary as when the Evil Witch decides to poison Snow White. As ruffles and frills get dyed a gloomy black or a bloody red. A doily dress perfectly matches the Wicked Witch of the West, color wise. Flowers embellish a puffy LBD.
