VINTAGE STUDS

As time has gone by I have become less and less interested in fashion and trends, not to mentioned influenced by them. But of course I notice trends and such, and studs have been seen a lot lately (did it start with Carries studded belt in the SATC movie?), perhaps it's still really in, or perhaps the biggest boom is over by now, but anyway; behold, they had studs in the 1930 already! And not just shoes or bags but a studded dress!

Even though some of the studded stuff may be delicious per se I haven't really found it my thing but this one I could wear!


Lanvin from 1935. (Scanned from a book of mine).

You are glamour women. Your dress is beautiful, and I love your shoes. Your's blond hair is fascinating.

I had no idea studded detailing went back that far. What a glorious dress.

I love this! I'm definitely getting Egyptian revival from this!

Punks have been wearing studs for so much longer than SATC...but I'm not sure what really sparked this whole "dark fashion" phenomenon. It's weird, watching people trying to mimic metal, punk, and goth style, you know?

Sal : I had no idea either!

Ms.B : Yes, I know what you mean!

Andrea : Of course, I was more thinking about fashionistas than punks... I had studded belts as 14-15 also. And it's of course nothing new with fashion taking influences of subcultures...

0.o I love those! They are strange and unusual to me. I wonder where one could find them...

Nice post about the trends & studs !
Oh I so agree with not being so much influenced by (the most obvious) mainstream trends.

What a fantastic dress. I remember my mum telling me her brother made her a studded belt back in the 60s.
