Swacket

I just discovered the word “swacket” aka sweater-jacket. Has this been around for a while?

Anyways, here’s a cool example!

The Lanvin Dance

I love how Lanvin doesn’t take itself too seriuosly and is not afraid to be silly. I wanna dance with Alber Elbaz!

Medieval Fashion

I am obsessed with Game of Thrones on HBO right now and the costumes are just spectacular. Check these out.


Some interesting facts: Medieval fashion during the the Middle Ages was dominated by the Kings and Queens of the era. Only the wealthy could dress in fashionable clothes. Sumptuary Laws  restricted ordinary people in their expenditure including money spent on clothes. Under the Sumptuary Laws passed by King Edward III only royalty were allowed to wear cloth of gold and purple silk. Expensive veils were banned for lower class women. Only the wives or daughters of nobles were allowed to wear velvet, satin sable or ermine.
