New ideas are old ideas as history has a tendency of repeating itself and in fashion, it’s no exception. Lilah Ramzi, of my newest blog obsession Part Nouveau, explores the history and inspiration behind some of our favorite modern fashion moments. Who knew the campaign for Miss Dior Cherie, shot by Tim Walker, was inspired the 1956 short film Le Ballon Rouge? Or that cover of Harper’s Bazaar, where Kate Winslet is swinging off a tower in front of the Chrysler Building, was influenced by Lisa Fonssagrives swaying from the Eiffel Tower in a 1939 issue of French Vogue? Fascinating!
It’s really amazing. Fashion is always repeating itself. Lovely tributes 😀
