Style Inspiration: 1950s Accessories
For your consideration, today we feature a selection of accessories (and one poster) to inspire your wardrobe. The majority are modern classics inspired by the styles of the 1950s while one has been influencing global taste since the turn of the last century.
The poster: Mossant was a French hat manufacturer whose worldwide success exposed their beautiful poster art to millions of people. They closed their doors in 1998, but their advertising art lives on. In particular this iconic example painted by Leonetto Cappiello. Makes us fancy a bowler.
The camera: A premium feel coupled with handsome retro styling (designed to look like 1950s Leicas and Kodaks) is a recipe for a hit. And while the Fujifilm X100S is a modern camera, it doesn’t just rely on good looks. It’s popular with photographers due to its superior lens and sensor combination and hybrid viewfinder. Additionally, it has won several design awards including the prestigious 2013 Good Design Award bestowed by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.
The glasses: “Quoting iconic styles from the 20th century, a huge pool of inspiration for shapes and styles, DECADES re-interprets timeless classics in a modern way. From classic Panto frames to the bold contours of the 1960s and the supersized form vocabulary of the 70s and 80s. The translation of the models into MYKITA’s ultra-thin stainless-steel concept gives this collection an unprecedented, contemporary look.”
The bow tie: A beautiful tweed bow tie, perfect for those trying to push the boundaries of the fashion world. The entire bow tie range is exclusive to the Mrs Bow Tie brand, designed and handmade by the team in our UK studio.
