SS15 Retro Inspired Pieces Fashion WeekAre those your Grandma’s clothes?

Fashion is all about recycling old ideas and making them new. This retro inspired trend takes that idea and does a headstand with it! We are seeing color, structure, and attitude reawaken from the sixties and seventies and I don’t think they want to leave just yet.

Collection Incorporation

Now here’s the big question… How to incorporate this trend into your collection? The great news is, you probably already have pieces that could work for this look. Anything from pencil skirts to knee-length denim, solid color suits to military jackets, high-waist pants to bell-bottoms, shift dresses to maxi-dresses. You have hundreds of years of inspiration to choose from.

SS15 Retro Inspired Fashion WeekCreating is half the fun!

You can create this retro look using sophisticated silhouettes, retro muted colors, and kitschy prints in suede or charmeuse. Now add a clever use of embroidery and voila! We have reinvented your grandmother’s color coordinated suit, and brought life to that knee length denim skirt you loved so much in school. The combination of old and new makes for something not just eye catching but street savvy. Who knew that your mom/dad’s old clothes could be so cool?
