American Retro

Curvy girls are in luck. AW10 collections from Prada and Luis Vuitton pay homage to the shapes of the 50s and 60s and tap into the popularity of American drama Madmen. Just think of Donald Draper’s wife (played by January Jones), or secretary, Joan Harris, or my favourite, Jewish heiress, Rachel Menken in any of these pieces and you wouldn’t think the styling amiss.

We have already seen cropped trousers and flats filtering through into the mainstream but I just hope the more dramatic elements of these fashions travel the same way so that those of us who can only dream of paying such premiums can afford to wear these trends in time for Christmas parties.

Madmen eye candy to follow...
