The Fashion Time Machine: 50s

In the 1950 the world stepped out of the conservative war years into a new and dazzling decade. During World War II there was a lack of fabrics and threads and, when it and rationing finally ended, an availability of various types of textiles and their larger quantities allowed a new type of fashion to bloom. Generally speaking, this fashion period can be characterized by excessive billowing skirts, ladylike accessories, feminine silhouettes and the rise of teenage culture.

Despite an abundance of different types of skirts in 50s, a circle skirt was the unrivaled leader because it made all women look as if they just walked off the cover of one of the fashion magazines. Circular skirts can be perfectly complemented by such kitten heel slingback shoes from our spring-summer collection.

Greasers

Greasers are a youth subculture from 40s and 50s that emerged among working class. It got its name from a number of hair styles which were created with the help of special pomade providing an effect of greased hair. In one of the most popular American musicals, ‘Grease’, the main character – Sandy – undergoes the transformation from an ordinary teenage girl from 50s to a real greaser. A black leather jacket, a black satin jumpsuit and hot red heels became her trademark.

This fashion trend was especially popular in the post-war years since such soft and warm fabrics as cashmere and angora became more available to the masses. In combination with pencil skirts, capri trousers and the right footwear like our slingback block heel shoes, colourful tight sweaters and short cardigans looked particularly elegant and were suited to the spirit of the times.
