Well, weeks roll by fast and here we are at scatter time again.
This first image just made me smile so much. These 3 young ladies are supposedly awaiting their prom dates. What makes this worthy of comment though, is as an image of how we wish to represent ourselves in our youth now, as opposed to the 1950s. These young women all have very adult hairstyles, and their clothing is sweetly demure. In fact, all three dresses are virtually interchangeable, since they are all strapless sweetheart necklined, full skirted dresses. What shows up at proms now is short, tight and shiny to a significant degree. The desire to express full adulthood takes precedence now, over the more carefully controlled version we see here.
In 1923 Revillon Furriers did this gloriously green velvet evening coat, trimmed in mink. Something about the slouchy easiness of this style implies that it must've been sexy as hell to wear. Imagine that collar slipping off the shoulder. Yep, sexy clothes, without being nasty. Plus the combination of that green with the tone of the fur is perfection.
So, there's your Scatter for this week. I hope you enjoyed it!
