Winter fashion in the 1940s & 50s

I don’t usually like 1940s fashions.  My interest tends to begin in the 50s.  But, here is the exception that makes the rule!

And now, the 50s:


Model Georgia Hamilton, Photo by John Rawlings, 1950s. That is an Eames Aluminum Group chair, originally designed as outdoor furniture by Ray & Charles Eames in 1958. The other stuff in the photo is ok too.

  1. I agree, the 1950s were tres chic! We have to thank the boxy, masculine styles of the 1940s because in his rebellion against it Christian Dior created the New Look. The New Look was the source for most 1950s inspired fashion.
