VINTAGE INSPIRATION AT THE GRAMMY AWARDS 2013

As you know, we love vintage inspiration big or small, and this year’s Grammy Awards were chalk-full of unique vintage style inspiration.

Both the men and women of music have embraced their idols past, to create new looks that will last straight into the future. It doesn’t take much to tell, so let’s take a look:

ADELE

Adele looked amazing in this floral Valentino dress, and while some might say it looked too much like tapestry, style aficionados will note the throwback to early 1960s floral patterns, and big skirts, like those seen on “Mad Men”.

KATY PERRY

Katy Perry and stylist Johnny Wujek went the perfect direction with this mint green gown by Gucci, giving the California girl a taste of Nashville, and the decked out glamour of Priscilla Presley in the 1970s. Just check out that hair!

JACK WHITE

Jack White’s performance outfit was a nod to rockabilly days past, with a hint of 1960s mariachi thrown in there!

JANELLE MONAE

Janelle Monae described her outfit as a handful of “ideas”, but the one that stands out most is her Matador flare, which you can glimpse at almost every angle.

KIMBRA

The boldest, and best, in our opinion had to go to Kimbra who channelled the glamour and whimsy of Hollywood. From Jean Harlow to Esther Williams the delicate tulle dress by Australian designer Jamie Lee Major evokes the magic of the past, but sets us straight forward into the future! Love this look. If only more stars had the guts to bring the fashion on when it comes to these events!

Then the world would be a better place . . .

Show a Stripe: Steal the Show!

Season after season, year after year, there will always be a straight line straight through menswear. Always a stylists’ top choice, the gentleman’s closet wouldn’t be complete without at least a striped t-shirt! Be it a button down, a sweater, or a tie, stripes are going nowhere fast.

Thom Browne has done some eccentric styling for his striped looks, and you can always trust Paris’ Jean Paul Gaultier to bring a  clean stripe in some form to the runway, along with Givenchy, and even Alexander McQueen. We also spotted a casual striped pant on the catwalk for Tommy Hilfiger. Alright alright, it’s pretty much impossible NOT to see stripes in all the major shows!

A tried and true pal of Hollywoods leading men from Ryan Gosling to Marlon Brando, stripes are always fresh and defyingly edgy. Sexy, whether thin or thick, we love to see a handsome man rocking a crisp stripe anywhere in the world. You don’t need a thick wallet to capitalize on this look- this is a look that’s mall cool, and boutique chic!

Truly reaching men from all walks of life over time, be it for taste or necessity, it’s a look that could balance on the tightrope of the Circus, and be locked up in a Jailhouse. Stripes are a conventional look which have always been favoured by the unfavourable.

Today or Tomorrow, new or old, stripes are a staple we wouldn’t want to live without. From street style chic to looks with a retro influence, we love a stripe. And that’s the bottom line.

The Eye.
