Retro, Retro, Retro and no end in sight! Louis Vuitton showed 40s checked menswear, babydoll dresses and princess coats on the runway for Autumn 2012. Moschino played with 50s lace, pencil skirts and cropped capri pants for their autumn 2013 collection.
Cropped Capri pants, whose name derives from the Italian island of Capri, become popular in the late 50s. They are playful and sexy, show off your shoes and never go out of fashion. In fact, they are an all year round staple for Italians, hence the name “Italian length” – which means the trousers end just above your ankle.
Combine the capri pants classically like Brigitte Bardot did with ballet pumps: I’m wearing black and white vichy checked capri pants with Pretty Ballerinas and a Stefanel trenchcoat.
Go Retro full blast and combine capri pants with 50s kitten heels. I’m wearing a silk blouse with Peter Pan collar from H&M, Bouclé box jacket from TK Maxx, kitten heels from Logan. Retro sunglasses from Chloé.
