Today we are lucky enough that Eva will tell us about what hers Mondo Kaos history is and what inspired her to style herself in the vintage style.
Name: Eva Sparre
Hi Eva, what are you running around doing these days?
I go to work as usual as opticians still have to stay open. And my 5 year old daughter goes to kindergarten while my husband works from home. We enjoy good walks in our free time, and then the daughter's room has been given a little make-over with a new bed.
HYou have known us for a long time Mondo Kaos and how did you get to know us?
I bought my first dress in Mondo Kaos 11 years ago. I had seen it in an advertising magazine and then I had to find the store. And ever since has Mondo Kaos been the favorite store.
Where do you get your inspiration for your particular style?
I grew up watching quite a few old movies from the 50s and 60s, so this is definitely where my penchant for vintage style started.
On social media, there are lots of nice pictures from people who really go all-in on the style. Otherwise you just need to look a little at yours webshop og blog to be tempted and inspired ;-)
Inspiration in the wonderful films from the 1950s and 60s
Rear Window - Hidden eyes from 1954
Roman Holiday - The princess takes a day off from 1953
How to Marry a Millionaire - Three girls are looking for a millionaire from 1953
What is it about? Mondo Kaos What makes you shop with us?
I love the style of your clothes and the fact that it does not go out of fashion. One can enjoy the clothes for many years, I still wear the first dress I bought 11 years ago occasionally.
But the most important thing is that you always get the best service, with expert advice and guidance. Good service can be far between in today's Denmark, so shop around Mondo Kaos is always a pleasure.
If you were to give women three great styling tips, what would they be?
1. Find a style that you feel comfortable with, and do not let yourself be dictated by mainstream fashion. If you feel comfortable, then you immediately look better.
2. Choose clothes that highlight your figure, loose clothing does NOT make you look smaller.
3. The lovely wool cardigans from Emmy Design are perfect for giving a retro look to most clothes. They highlight one's waist and then they are brilliant to wear over a summer dress when it is cold outside.
Estimate in Teal
We can see that Eva has a penchant for the color teal, and the beautiful Grable & Ava dress from The House Of Foxy. We also love teal, so here's a small selection.
The beautiful Emmy cardigans
We totally agree with Eva that our cardigans from Emmy Design is in a class of its own.
Thanks for the vintage inspiration
Many thanks to Eva for telling about her inspiration and about what she goes and does in these corona times. And for your (and your family's) faithful support over so many years. We look forward to seeing you all when it's safe to reopen.
