It's not always easy to find vintage-inspired pieces on the high street! I rounded up a few of my current favorites - some I managed to get, others I wish I could 😉

To close recently was the exhibition entitled The World of Anna Sui. Preferring rather simplicity over many textures and prints, I was surprised to find this retrospective fascinating. A few words and more photos are up on my blog! @annasui @fashiontextilemuseum #theworldofannasui #fashion #museum #exhibition #london #annasui

There is a street in Warsaw called "Żwirki & Wigury". And today I found out who stands behind those two last names! Here they are, Stanisław Wigura and Franciszek Żwirko, in Kraków in October, 1930 (📷: Kraków Aviation Museum).
Pilot and instructor Franciszek Żwirko (b. 1895) and mechanical engineer Stanisław Wigura (b. 1901) scored their first great sporting win in the Challenge International de Tourisme rally held in Berlin in August 1932. They flew a RWD-6, a sports airplane designed by Rogalski, Wigura and Drzewiecki, and built under their supervision in Warsaw. This Polish triumph, in the prestigious international competition, was both a display of unsurpassed flying skill and a testimony of engineering excellence. Żwirko and Wigura came to embody the dreams of a modern Polish state, and 28 August was deemed Aviation Day. Both men died tragically on September 11, that same year, in an aviation accident in the mountains near the Czechoslovak border. Their success and unfortunate end were some of the most sensational, if forgotten today, events in the history of the Second Polish Republic. ✈️✈️✈️

Did you know that in 2008 @hm created a collection in tribute to the Finnish brand - Marimekko? How colorful and flamboyant are their designs! Visit my blog for more interesting articles and exhibitions I have been reading about recently 👗👗 Link in bio ⬆️

After-dark separates seen in a new life: not a skirt and top but a dress and blouse to wear together or à la carte. The dress is black taffeta with boned strapless bodice, and bell skirt ruched in a great spiral, buoyed up with stiffening; the blouse, a tailored mist of nylon organdie, with set-in sleeves, jet buttons. Perfect as partners - made one with a patent belt - or worn separately; the blouse with day clothes; the dress with jewels, a stole or a bolero.

Vintage nightwear, much like swimsuits, can be hard to find. Today's blog post is all about my perfect nightie!
