1930’s Vintage Fashion, Nostalgia will follow

An Era to Remember

Creating a blockbuster hit is only half the battle. Costume design and wardrobe can play such a major impact in the success of a film, of course when all other important factors are in place.

It looks like the roaring 20’s will have to take a backseat, because there’s a new sheriff in town.

Forget the flapper girls and zoot suits for a moment. Beautifully designed and constructed garments in such films as Atonement and The Purple Rose of Cairo are great examples of how structured garments can transform into soft and romantic pieces with the help of beautiful and romantic backdrops and cinematography that’s just right. Cue any romantic scene in Life is Beautiful.

According to this recent Wall Street Journal Article the 1930s look is dominating as a fan favorite on recent runways.

Both Balenciaga and Miu Miu featured 30s inspired clothing in their dazzling fall runways. Ahh the 30s makes us all want to make a trip to our nearest vintage store in search of treasure. What about the cinematography and musical backdrop you ask? It will all come into play once you step outside wearing your vintage 1930s yellow peacoat. Viva la 30s.

Tell us, what’s your favorite movie of the 1930’s era?
