Let’s Revive The Spats | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Riding on the sand along the beach, dressed in a period frock of early 1920’s, a red and black fitted jacket with gold buttons, frills coming out from a white shirt underneath, beige riding pants, brown-black leather boots and gloves, my head covered with a woman style top hat and my long blond hair flowing in the wind. I see myself in this idyllic period picture wearing decorative spats fastened under the foot with a strap to protect my beautiful riding trousers and boots from the wet sand. My fantasy runs wild when I see original pieces of clothes!

Spats buttoned up along the ankles were fashionable in the early 1900s especially for a man outfit. I remember my mother’s father wearing beige buttoned up spats over his shoes. He was a tall, blue-eyed man, had a very stern attitude and an elegant comportment I haven’t seen in anyone ever since. I didn’t like him that much, he was harsh and narcissist, his name was Angelo and nothing of him resembled an Angel. However, I admired his sharp, very refined and detailed way of dressing up, when he left the house it seemed as if a model left for a fashion show. He was well dressed every day.

I see myself wearing many types of spats, short and long, in Tartans, Boho, Victorian style and much more. They do embellish a common pair of shoes and add originality to any outfit. I found these beautiful examples at maidestreasuries.

In various countries military infantry still wear spats for formal events even today, I love to see pomp and circumstances.

In our modern dressing up, we can do many things, pairing antique, vintage accessories with new modern fashion is actually a very interesting way to dress up.
If the feet and calves are highly decorated keep a simple style up above and use mostly solid colors. Ciao,
