Elegant Ekberg

Anita Ekberg was a Swedish model in the 1950s who won a contract with Universal Studios and went on to star in a number of 1950s and 1960s films including the famed La Dolce Vita (1960). These beautiful vintage photographs and film stills are just a few examples of what made Ekberg a celebrated pin-up in her time.

Brilliant Bergdorf

Bergdorf Goodman Department Store in New York is known for it's masterful window displays, which have been consistently creative and inspirational over the past decade. The aim is to keep an element of surprise in their displays, meaning they often contrast very extravagant creations with starker exhibits, and showcase high-end designer fashions against backgrounds of antiques and brick-a-brack. Drawing inspiration from films, books, locations and animals, it can take up to a year to collect items for a single window.

Fantasy Ferretti

Alberta Ferretti's Spring 2011 range showcased beautifully floaty, feminine dresses in diaphanous soft floral fabrics, with detailing such as pleating, raw-edging and tiered layers of chiffon, accessorised with wide-brim hats and plait leather sandals. We love the whimsical fantasy captured by the collection, as the gossamer fabrics and soft colour palette conjure up dreamy images of fairytale princesses and heroines.
