new breed

My biggest inspiration for spring is the flapper look of the Roaring Twenties. Colenimo's spring/summer 2010 collection is a lovely, modernized rendition of this trend which started nearly a century ago.


I love so much about the flapper influence. The hair, the hair accessories. The flowly layers, menswear inspiration. I'll admit it's a step away from my usual high-waisted style, but it's still refreshing and I look forward to playing around with hemlines, layers, and a new colour palette this spring!

Love the photos! Who isn't inspired by the 20's?

I remember when I was little I always wanted to be a flapper girl for Halloween. I was a cat instead.

I love all the head pieces. They don't seem like much but they complete the outfit.

ohh the 20's were wonderful! If only I could get my hands on some of their darling little hats~

by the way, I saw the Vespa bag in a shop in Paris last week! haha

Oh my gosh, this is so crazy Chloe! I've really been into the flapper look too as of recent weeks! I think I've been watching too many 1920s period films (not to mention I have my occasional moments of spontaneous Charleston dances...not in public, of course!). Thanks for posting this, I'll definitely be using this as inspiration!
