Vintage Love | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

If you go through your mom’s closet and drawers and you find stuff that belongs to another era, what do you do? Do you throw it all away if she has left this world, do you keep all or some, or are you in ecstasy seeing past fashion, trying on jewelry, imagining how it was, or maybe the events your mom went with those items?

Fashion of the past eras have exquisite details, some of the pieces are designed with extravagant fantasy, workmanship on some clothes is unrepeatable, delicate embroidery and intricate stitches are a work of many hours skilled hands dedicated to fashion. Take a look at these ‘window or perforated’ gloves to understand how small details like these were so important a few years ago.

My love for vintage would not allow me to ruthlessly discard anything without thinking of the way I can use it in my modern life. A pair of sabot like the salmon ones in the photos are perfect to wear with a 1950’s ankle pants with a side split. Vintage accessories add a touch of originality to the look.

 

I have collected my small pins in the photo below through the years, bought them at various antique shops or second hands stores and now I attach them on collars, fabric purses, at the edge of pants and around pockets of jackets or jeans. A bland sweater that has no particular interest, suddenly takes a new character.

I think a woman wardrobe becomes interesting when it comprises a good mix of modern accessories and accessories of a different era, trendy modern clothes and artsy pieces. Colors are important as breathing, one must have basic colors to go with some bold, vibrant colors.  A good wardrobe is built to reflect the owner’s personality and not a replica of a department stores.

I hope you have something from the past that reminds you of someone, an event, a special moment that you keep enjoying in your life. Ciao,
Valentina
