THE INFLUENCE OF AN ERA. . .


-Continues to inspire designers of today. It is of course the 1970' es I am referring too.

Halston (1932-90) was the designer of the era and dressed all the celebrities  at that time.
They all met at Studio 54 in New York, a decadent and notorious discoteque in the late 1970´s. For more information read the post on style/mag. here.

Even today you see a lot of celebreties wearing Halston Vintage at big events, because it still looks glamourous, contemporary, stylish and effortless.



Today we still see a very strong influence in the collections from Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs among others. They also frequented the famous club back then.

Tom Ford since gained international fame for his turnaround of Gucci from 1990-2004, because he gave back the house a more contemporary, sexy and  glamouros style with that same influence.
Especially the latest collection in his own name shows very much the impact that era had on him. Read more about his state of mind and why in Harper´s Bazaar here.
