Continuation of the previous post…
The other thing in this old Vogue Pattern Book that was remarkable was the hats. I am old enough to have a good recall of 1960, and I don’t remember so many hats. But maybe they were more common for the ladies who lunch.
In fact, the hats were important enough that they had little detail shots with details on the designer and also noting the color if the photo was black and white.
In case you can’t read the caption: “…Christian Dior’s rough-textured beehive straw cloche, towering high at the crown, and deeply brimmed. Forecastin the uninhibited color range of this season’s hats: the brilliant torquoise brim, the vivid orange crown.: Yow. I’m surprised she didn’t need shades.
Notice all the contrast trim? There was lots of that throughout the magazine as well.
