The dolphin olympics of survival


Just watched the movie called The Cove, its sad to see how dolphins are being mistreated, even after this film has been out for almost a year, it opened my eyes to see the inhumanity that people are doing.

The film below shows the support from the most famous Hollywood Actors, its a captivating film that shows you the life & ending of a dolphin. And what can be done to prevent this.

Vintage Swimwear - Be a Retro Bathing Beauty

Friday, June 24, 2011
A short illustrated and film history of Women's Vintage Swimwear.

1940 swimsuit
Retro Swimsuit from what Katy Did

You can also read an excellent interview with that oracle of vintage swimsuits - Pam Fierro of Glamoursurf, who recently shared her love of vintage swimwear with Lisa Hix [ see Retro Bathing Beauty below ] of Collectors Weekly. With a surname like Fierro -  she should have her own line of retro swimsuits out there someday. It rolls off the tongue ! Check her blog GlamourSplash

Vintage Swimwear - A short history on film



Beautiful 1930's Swimwear Film in Color




In the early 20th century, folks didnt go swimming - they went bathing - which literally meant paddling up to the knees and no more - heaven forbid.
In the Edwardian days - bathing was a very segregated affair, with men and women bathing apart. The swimsuit had yet to be invented  with ladies wearing dresses essentially, hoisted to the knee. Men and women wore bathing shoes. - and not many people even knew how to swim. One name above all stands out in the development of glamour in womens swimwear - Jantzen.


Flappers on the beach !
 In that iconic decade of fashion - the 1920s - swimwear went through just as many changes as the simple frock - and in many ways helped develop the appreciation of line and form in all future fashion design. Their famous Diving Girl logo heralded a new age of freedom, health and fitness.


According to Glamoursurfs Fierro in an interview with Collectors Weekly - Jantzens logo became so popular that stickers were appearing in car windows - such was the impact of the image. Their suits revealed shoulders and thighs and encouraged the new fad of getting a tan. Glamour and swimming went hand in hand. New elastane, lastex  and in the 1930s and 1940s - the introduction of nylon - meant that swimsuits could be figure hugging and flattering to the female silhouette.After the war Lycra helped suits to become even more figure hugging.

Says Fierro " Jantzen even had color-harmony guides that told women how to match their lipstick and nail polish to their swimsuit !"
In the early 1920s - stockings were often worn with swimsuits - as typified by the Max Sennet bathing beauties.

One major influence in - ahem - dropping the stockings from the ensemble was a lady called  Annette Kellerman who says Glamoursurfs Fierro " was arrested for showing her knees and taking off her stockings, but she took her case to court  and won because she said that she couldn’t swim in stockings. So that opened things up a lot. Women were now able to show their legs."

As the 1930's came in, slimline swimwear and new two piece belted sailor inspired suits became increasingly popular - and these nautical styles are back in vogue again. UK designers What Katy Did have some stunning designs that celebrate styles from the 1930s to the 1950's. Sarongs were also fashionable - who can forget the stunning sarong clad Dorothy Lamour in the 1937 film Hurricane?
The shortage of fabric during the war years and of course the huge influence of Hollywood encouraged designers to create even skimpier designs. Two piece outfits were many and varied, but generally  covered the belly button - as this was for a long time not considered worth revealing. That is until the Bikini exploded onto the world in 1946. By the 1950's says Fierro - boned corsetted style swimwear became popular, to help accentuate your assets and downplay other parts of your body.

1950s swimwear - Catalina

Swimsuit Designers

Swimwear designers include the aforementioned Jantzen and in Fierros opinion " Claire McCardell is her holy grail of swimsuit designers" In the 1940s she produced the diaper suit, which was a one piece wraparound. As the 1950s came in the playsuit - which incorporated removable skirts - was the new rage at the beach.
Says Fierro " Swimwear manufacturer Catalina was another big player. They started promoting things like beauty pageants, so their swimwear was seen on models in Miss America pageants."
Hollywood actress and glamourous swimmer Esther Williams became a swim fashion icon and she encouraged designers to use her own design ideas, which were more aqua dynamic. Vintage Swimwear haute couture really hit the sandy beaches from the 1930s onwards, with designer sunglasses, parasols, beach towels, robes, hats - you name it.

Be a Retro Bathing Beauty

What Katy Did
According to Collectors Weekly Lisa Hix -  Retro pin-up style swimsuits covering more flesh but flattering to the figure, are now back in vogue. Lets face it - modesty is sexy and alluring and you can stop sucking in those bellys ! Pam Fierro of Glamoursurf interviewed by Lisa - definiely agrees that less is more when it comes to beach fashion. " Who wants to see thongs and strings that leave little to the imagination"
Writes Lisa " Though all those iconic models like Liz Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Janet Leigh - et all - had gorgeous hourglass figures - any shape looks glamourous in a retro style swimsuit. Just look at the Deco Belles and you can see just how sexy these outfits were. So start searching now for those  high waisted polka dotted granny panties and you'll be turning heads at the beach before you know it.
Thanks Lisa for your excellent post. Once again pay a visit to that glamourous of glamour designers What Katy Did and treat yourself to some gorgeous retro style swimwear, or visit Modcloth - vintage swimwear stockists.

And finally - The Decobelles - perform a vintage swimsuit fashion show.

Personal Note: Fashion for June

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Well The Elite 50s Fashion are over, but there coming fast to a store near you...so everybody in town will be wearing one, including your neighbor, but all hope is not lost, i cracked the code faster than i could have imagined the upcoming Cuban Missile Crisis.


I've managed to gather some free time on my side to show you what clothing trends to look for, Gucci and D&G are the main role models in society, the other fashion brands...well its just of higher taste, unjustifiable to the general public, including celebrities mind you.


For those trying to still figure this out, look at the image above, what are the first things that come into mind...Class,Rich,Sophistication,Elite,Rare, Exquisite



The Equestrian & Gentleman's Club Theme will be a style everybody will want by early winter, but will remain in its crescent state for quite some time...


And from the image above you can see Korea has gotten its Lastest fashion groove on.


More images for getting ideas..
Note: i will not link any unknown brands.

The 5 Best Gucci Summer Menswear Suits for 2012

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Finally the curtains came down, and the trend was exposed in the nude when the Gucci models came walking down the runway, and what this means is that The British gentleman's club theme is 100%, With Prada Head-spin 50s Golf styles and D&G with Imperial Patterns, truth be told the final bolt got hammered.

What this means is that, High End fashion will go back to its original roots where it came from, Think Ralph Lauren Horse rider mixed with Golf Class, This screams Elite Only as it should be...



These are the Best 5 Elitist Fashion Designs to consider this Summer.


The top neck collars in black show high class, and the flaps on the blazer show minimalist sophistication, note the pants hinting red below, this suit is done very well...




The Pattern reminds me of the British Theme, note the bow-tie and full-blown formality, This of-course is a almost midnight gentlemen's club outfit.




This suit speaks so many levels of class, i would mistake him for a owner of a fortune 500 company, and that the only thing that comes into mind is luxury...


This one, is very regimental to its military class in color & texture, its neither too striking or just plain...its in the middle, quite formal and very classy..




And finally the best for last, is it quite a coincidence that only 2 models came out in red, but i personally don't think so...it was very intentional, and here's the elitist secret..


And i know i going to hurt someone 


Somebody is gonna get hurt...




Time to break a fashion rule...


Forget the Red Trench coat, get a sports blazer in red like this mixed with the drafted pants, note that the styles above the red coat model are Ultra Fashionable, at this given moment (Elitist Designer Fashion) but you can kick it up a notch by sporting a red sports blazer.
