From the Regency era’s high waists to Victorian-inspired frills, some age-old styles still reign supreme
Words by ALISON EDMOND
Between the success of The Crown and the forthcoming adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, there is a distinctly British reminiscence going on behind the scenes this summer in the worlds of entertainment and fashion. With the classics of bygone eras becoming the hits of today and tomorrow, we’re turning our mind’s eye to Brock’s super-feminine gowns, which reflect a Regency mood, and to the beautiful layering at Dries van Noten and Alexander McQueen that looks like it belongs in the Victorian era. We think you’ll find that while these pieces may be vintage-inspired, their uniqueness makes them timeless investments to any wardrobe.
