Spring 2010 is flourishing with whimsical inspiration.
This circus is coming to town this Spring. Vintage lingerie and circus motifs, reminiscent of the early 20th century, are pervasive. Dripping with silks and lace the vibe is, like the old HBO show carnivale, a little dark, a little dusty, but deeply romantic.
Fashion can inspire us to move as much as movement can inspire fashion.
Check out the beautiful zoetrope circus-themed campaign for Temperley of London’s spring 2010 collection:
Who hasn’t at one point dreamed of being a character in the circus? Ringmaster, trapeze artist, tight rope walker, juggler, clown, acrobat, etc.
This Spring is the perfect time to add that signature piece from your circus fantasies into your wardrobe – the top hat, the tulle skirt, the jacket with coattails (maybe skip the red clown nose) – incorporating a little personal magic.
While embracing the whimsy of spring fashion trends, why not sign up for a juggling class, trapeze class, or clown school? Who says exercise and health can’t be a three ring circus of fashion, feeling pretty, and having fun.
