Second half of the Fifties Decade is well in the way. And, boy.. do we see some changes in fashion. Wait till you give it a glance in these images.. you'll spot some new (and bold - just spot the front page!) colors, brave cuts and detailing that pops-out.
Let us take a closer look:
Colorful cover - to brighten up the day!
Red dress and yellow features.
Please, note the new design of shoes.
"New coats for..."
"..1956/1957 winter season"
As I've been mentioning earlier: we are stepping away from
the waist-fitted models
I suppose, back in the day, this is what a
well-off housewife wore in her West Germany home
You can see the introduction of PINK and
the addition of leopard-print
The glossy belt is something new,
bows are something we are used to by now.
"Beautiful and practical"
Even the title in this page is lovely.
The dress in the upper right is a bit odd,
but the one in the bottom is absulute hit!
Take a simple, well-fitted jerseytoop and
add some embelishemts - instant glamour!
Making this florew takes a bit of needlewor-knowledge
but it's wort the effort.
Yet another new thing in fashion:
the new cut for the neckline.
Chosing the right kind of wool.
Interestingly: THIS is what they used to call "spoty style". :)
And, once you give it a good look,
you can see that those truly are utility-wear.
An ad about washing your whites.
"Knitted and embroidered"
I decide we stop here.
In this isssue of Burda magazine, we have seen quite the number of new things in the world of fashion: from neckline shapes, usage of glossy belts.. up to leopard-printed features used to emphasize the somewhat simple dress.
I don't know about you, but I'm overwhelmed.
