For an exclusive time HarpersBAZAAR.my is considering the old—all things vintage to be exact. Follow our first #BAZAARVintageView digital series for a treasure hunt for stories untold and hidden gems uncovered.
To kickstart this web exclusive series, Aisyah Yusof, BAZAAR Web Editor and Haida Yusof, BAZAAR Fashion Stylist hit the styling circuit with a time span of 4 hours to churn a street style mini-campaign shot Tommy Ton style under the creative authority of photographer, Raisa Azzam. Together with Lone Larsen, Founder of Vinter Vintage we created personal renditions of street style trends purely from the collections of Vinter Vintage.
#1. Street Style Trend: The Red Coat
Aisyah: 1960s Red Boxy Blazer, 1960s Black Button Back Broderie Anglais Blouse, 1960s Tartan Capri Pants, 1960s Embossed Leather Briefcase.
Women in the 1950’s were the first to really enjoy the freedom of wearing pants as acceptable women’s clothing. Capri pants were introduced by fashion designer Sonja de Lennart in 1948. The pants’ name derives from the Italian isle of Capri, where they rose to popularity in the late 1950s and early ’60s.
#2. Street Style Trend: Kimono Jackets / #3. Street Style Trend: Contemporary Chinoiserie
Haida: 1980s Haori Kimono, 1912 Edwardian Embroidered Lace Blouse by Illum, 1960s Netted Corselette Slip Dress, 1970s Jersey Midi Skirt by Liza Peta, 1970s White Lorbac Shoulder Bag.
Lone: 1960s Silk Brocade Qipao Kaftan by Stella Fashion, 1970s Vintage Costume Jewellery, Toms Matte Brown Florentin Traveler Eyewear.
#4. Street Style Trend: Florals
Aisyah: 1960s Floral Embroidered Shift Dress, 1970s Gold Metal Chain Link Mesh Disco Bag, 1970s Vintage Jewellery.
Metal mesh was so popular in the 70s it was often seen as halter tops with matching disco bags.
Haida: 1960s Velvet A-line Skirt with Painted Flowers, 1960s Ruffled Button Back Cotton Shirt, 1960s Black PVC Handbag with Metal Handle, 1970s Earrings.
The mid-late ’60s saw a rising interest in overtly flamboyant Edwardian-inspired looks. The flamboyance was of British origin and featured lots of opulent velvets, bows and ruffled collars and cuffs that would make a dramatic statement. A tailored version of the poet shirt became highly fashionable.
