Eary_eras_blog_final_medium

We here at BurdaStyle were quite impressed not only by the sheer volume of diverse and high quality submissions received (over 150 from six different continents), but also with the level of enthusiasm and styling that went into each project. It was great seeing members get so creative and inspired, both from using vintage patterns and drafting original designs for a modern take on classic silhouettes. On that note, we’d like to highlight some party looks throughout the decades.

'Party Through The Decades' Inspiration: French New Wave Nostalgia

Jeanseberg_medium

Peter Pan collars? Check. Marinière stripes? Double check. French New Wave films of the 1960s, a decade that began in black and white, introduced us to a fresh new look in both cinema and fashion. Similar to Swinging Sixties London, it was a time when art, music, youthful iconoclasm, and fashion all converged. Style icons embodying the French ‘effortless chic’ aesthetic – several of whom who also had careers as pop singers – continue to dot mood boards and wield influence on runway looks of designers such as Jason Wu and John Galliano for Christian Dior.
