Vintage Spotlight #84

Posted on April 19 2012

Maritime enthusiasts, fifties fans, French speakers and medieval diplomacy scholars will find much to love in today's Vintage Spotlight. In fact, with such a wide-ranging appeal it's difficult to imagine why it might not be to everyone's taste... We originally picked out this 1950s day dress to add to our collection of Olympic-themed clothing (you know, on account of it being covered in international flags), but on closer inspection and a bit of web-based research discovered that the print is made up of medieval naval flags, or "Pavillons", to use the correct French terminology. Back in the day, these flags gave crews the authority to board other ships and boss them around a bit, which is fitting because a similar audacity is probably required to wear them in dress format. Set sail to Beyond Retro Brick Lane to pick this one up for £40, or check out some more subtle options online.
