The 1920's were an era of revolution for women and fashion. As they emerged from the retraints of Victorian times to discover a new freedom of body and soul. Lately I have been inspired by this remarkable era, which still influences fashion today.
Hints of vintage can be found in new items, like this bright gold beret or polka dot halter both from Target.
All photos for this story were taken with the Leica M9
For more period inspiration look for a copy of Art Deco Graphics ...out of print but worth hunting for. Great films to add to your queue, Bonnie & Clyde and the silent classic Diary of a Lost Girl. Finally, I have been listening non-stop to the album above by Erin McKeown who brings new life to some retro classics.
