Why do we call our dresses "Vintage" & "Retro"?
As you may have noticed, we use both the terms 'vintage' and 'retro' for our dresses, but is there really a difference between a vintage and a retro dress?
It is actually there, however, there is not a clear definition, so we will here try to give ours.
Vintage refers to clothing produced in about the year 1920 and up to 1980 - this can be homemade or in small or large productions. Since our dresses are not produced during this time period, we describe the dresses as "vintage inspired", as that is exactly what they are. They are inspired by the fashion of the decades 1940, 1950 og 1960 but produced today.
The term Retro came into being in the 1960s and refers to something from "the past" - and since our dresses are inspired by fashion from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, we also describe them as Retro dresses.
Actually, there is the term "Repro", which is probably the term that best describes our dresses, as repro comes from "reproduced" - ie dresses that have been produced again.
However, not many of our customers use the term Repro, but instead describe our dresses as "Retro dresses"or"Vintage dresses"and therefore we have chosen to do the same.
Are you looking for more than just a dress?
A retro dress can easily be combined with shoes with a modern look. In fact, something beautiful, exciting and interesting can actually emerge in the dynamics between the dress's stylish vintage style and a pair of brand new, modern shoes or stilettos.
However, it is also beautiful to go the retro plank all the way out and wear retro clothes from head to toe, and if that is your plan, you can find all types of retro clothes with us.
