Today, I felt inspired to photograph a tribute to Dior’s infamous “Bar Suit”, which later was called the “New Look” by fashion editor Carmel Snow.

Here are the “props”:
I was playing with a vintage GUCCI tartan top – 100% wool – from the early 80s,
a sheer vintage blouse by Italian master of fine shirts TRUZZI Milano – 100% silk – from the early 80s,
and a timeless full-length skirt by THE SCOTCH HOUSE – 100% wool – from the actual Scotch house in London. It was a huge and famous central London woollen and cashmere retailer on Regent Street, which sadly closed its multi-floor shop in 2001. This skirt was bought in 2000. The skirt can be worn low and I left it dangling very low on my hips indeed.
And of course, the ultimate tribute are the black DIOR shoes from the new Millenium!
Here are the final photos. Enjoy!
