Holiday Wishes and Vintage Advertisements
It’s Christmas Eve and by now, you’ve responded to party invitations, your travel plans are officially booked (hopefully, you’re already at your destination), your tree is decorated, and the presents are chosen, bought, and wrapped. Finally we’ve reached a moment of calm after the noise of tawdry consumerism to enjoy Winter and what the holidays are really about: gathering together with friends and loved ones, making new memories together, and reflecting on the past year—its struggles as well as its blessings.
This moment of quiet contemplation and gratitude feels like a small rebellion against the noise of sales, mad dashes to the mall, and the constant materialism that attacks us every time we check our phones or computer screens. These color vintage ads feel a little rebellious, too. They feel quiet compared to the noise of e-commerce. They feel focused, well-designed, and, frankly, textural. When is the last time you were able to appreciate the simple sexiness of a woman’s stockings? Or a holiday message printed in classic Olivetti typeface? We hope you enjoy these vintage advertisements and take a few moments for yourself to relish the small details, like a glass bottle of ice-cold Coke, that make them stand the test of time.
