dear reader–don’t you love when worlds collide? when art and fashion meet? when the present nods to the past? i found myself wondering “what it was” about some pieces from anthropologie’s online collection that was making me scratch my head. all i know is that i was drawn to a few pieces in particular.
it all started with this– a truly gorgeous necklace. so simple, so strong…in all its assymmetrical glory!
then i found myself looking for more of these strong textures and colors. anthro never disappoints–and i found several items that had the same feel.
now flapper femmes, fear not. i am not suggesting that all of these pretties should be worn at one go. but they all make for great bits of splash to brighten wardrobe basics. what a fresh look for spring–so different from the floral fantasy currently being offered around…
so why not add this little black dress?
or something snappier, like the Riley Ribbed Chemise
you can’t go barefoot, now can you?
and i personally wouldn’t make a move without accessorizing:
and it finally occurred to me what this was all reminding me of, in the first place. oh, you stenberg brothers. you wizards of great graphic art.
if you don’t know of them, make sure to check them out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stenberg_brothers
my personal favorites are pictured below…
from the German film, Six Girls Seeking Shelter (Hans Behrendt, 1927)
from the Russian film, Man with a Movie Camera (Dziga Vertov, 1929)
life. imitating art!
