Fashion DIY: How to Channel 1960’s Italian Vintage


One of my favorite eras is the 1960’s, particularly Italian 60’s.  The cinched wastes, sexy hour glass silhouettes, and warm wool–all contribute to a fabulously romantic attire.  Thanks to the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 RTW collection by Marc Jacobs, this fashion era was revisited brilliantly and the idea of a well-dressed woman is given attention.

Elle Magazine did an amazing  job in giving simple pointers on how to style yourself to channel this oh-so-fab vintage era.  They even include a simple checklist of the 1960’s essentials needed to don the look without seeming to try too hard.  Effortless chic is what we all want.

Are there any other fashion eras you love?

Tech: Guys- design your own shirt in 3D, BlueFlamme will tailor

Bleuflamme tailored mens shirts

Nothing tickles the SML team more than coming across tech firms that combine fashion and technology in a phenomenal way (for obvious reasons).

We recently came across BleuFlamme, catering to the dapper guy that appreciates bespoke garments–shirts in particular. Using their online 3-D  studio you can design every element of your shirt and view it in High Definition.  The shirt is then tailored in the Savile Row of Asia–Hong Kong, which also happens to be the only city in Asia ranked top tailors by AskMen.

You get your 100% pure Italian natural cotton shirt delivered in 10 days as opposed the several weeks it would normally take a traditional tailor.

With over 200 types of fabrics and patterns, everyone from the most traditional man to the funky is bound to find a style to match their taste/personality.

Here’s a How-To Video for the Bleuflamme 3D Shirt Studio:
