There is something deep seeded in humans to explore fresh ideas and find better solutions. Perhaps that is why we have such a yearning and respect for vintage treasure. We forever appreciate timeless elegance, beauty and well made products. Maybe it’s why Jantzen is such a respected vintage label. The company has been around since the dinosaurs and seems to live by that timeless philosophy, “If it isn’t broken, don’t try to fix it.” Forever timeless and forever classic.
The 1950’s were certainly a more glamorous time than the present. When you simply glance at a cover of a 1950’s magazine, it suddenly becomes apparent how gorgeous the fashion of that era were. It takes the gals at Filthy Rebena a long time to flip through the pages – seduced by contemporary fashions in vivid, Kodachrome-worthy colors.
What we adore about these particular photographs is the wanderlust vibe they still bring to the eye. As the 1950’s economy boomed in the fashion World, traveling was becoming more affordable. Travel and ethnic themes began to influence fashion and echo through consumer goods in a big way.
It’s no wonder that these glossy pages are still inspiring our closets and our wanderlust souls.
