Hello there, darling friends.
It's Wednesday, naturally, I'll be introducing you to a new set of images from BURDA magazines. Unfortunately, not much is saved in 1952, so we're heading to 1953 (damaged, as well) - that is why I'm merging two month into one post.
First off: March 1953.
Two colored suit with white edges gives a twist to the regular style
Take a look at the bag - it's brilliant.
Both dresses (if I'm not mistaken - afternoon dresses) are
adorned by the details: the belt and gloves "cut" the colors.
By making the diagonal and asymetrical cuts to the dresses
they are transformed from old style to the new and fresh look.
Just take a look at their colors - pastels.
"On a beautiful afternoon" - lovely shapes and great accessoires
Fashion for young German girls always shifted from and back to ethnic.
These models wear vivid colors and bring the much needed separation between
a girl style and a women's wear.
"In joyful anticipation" - clothes for your date
(and, as it appears - the Big Night)
If you had babies in 1950's they, too should be dressed in color.
"Our exclusive model" - violet in March
The title said it all - the color for the spring of 1953 is violet.
Unfortunately, that is all I have on March 1953. I'd love to be able to show you all the glory of the Spring, however, there are numerous missing pages.And now, let me fast forward you to April 1953.
Again - the '50 gave us accessoires that "cut" the color of the dress
in order to put an emphasis on it's form
"We are invited"
I'm guessing that these pretty ladies had the fortune of being invited to
an afternoon tea party at one of their friend's house.
I wonder what did that event look like?
"Colorful sommer flowers"
April edition of Burda is telling us to wrap ourselves in bloom.
..and take a look at accessoires - how they complement the garments.
Not only flowers, but bright colors as well.
Bright red, strongly noticable - perfect for your summer in the city.
These lovely dresses have been beautyfied by some handy embroidery.
The little details gave them not only new life, but also the change in texture.
Imagine what our dresses could look like
..if we turned off the PC / TV and had more time..
The exclusive model in this edition shows us (model above)
the lady had colorful skirt that needed nothing else to it, since the skirt itself
was as they call it "statement item"
The colorful recipe.
The picant and colorful food bites for a lovely party.
"Blue always remains modern" - I'll feel free to add:
Sailor style is ALWAYS in (am I right?)
Times change, shapes change.. but sailor dress never goes out of style.
I am trying to establish my social life. It's hadrer than it may look (sounds silly, since I'm not even in my thirties yet). Being a girl stuck in time, I'd like to be able to accompany one of these ladies to an afternoon event, in order to actually wear an "afternoon dress". What would that feeling be like?
