Secret cinema makes its comeback this valentine's with a Moulin Rouge inspired evening of fun and frolics. The Baz Luhrmann classic is the enchanting on screen story of beauty, truth, freedom and of course love. This story isnt just told with its fabulous music and cast but also its outstanding costume that transformed us back into the time of Pariss bohemian revolution. Secret cinema expects nothing less of it attendees and we at Beyond Retro have got everything you need to follow suit!
Moulin Rouge oozed sex appeal and created so many sensual on screen moments of Satine draped in vintage lingerie. Corsets, sheer nightgowns, slips and hold ups stole the show when making these looks. At Beyond Retro we have so many special pieces that will help you unleash your inner Satine.
These are some of our favourites. Find more here.
Moving slightly on from lingerie, a texture that encapsulates all of the glamour of the moulin rouge is lace. French and fabulous, adding a little bit of lace to your outfit gets us vintage lusting in all kinds of ways. Check out some of our favourite lace numbers and how they could help build your Moulin Rouge look.
