#ThrowbackFashion Mainbocher Corset, Paris, 1939 by Horst P. Horst via @VogueMagazine – September 1939

Vogue – September 1939
By: Horst P. Horst  (American/German, 1906–1999)

Horst P. Horst reveals a strikingly sexy pose in this photograph, which appeared in the September 15, 1939, Vogue. Seen from behind, a model sits on a wooden bench, looking down through her arms. She wears a back-lacing corset by Detolle for Mainbocher. Horst treats her body like a living sculpture, and this piece is as much a figure study as an image of a quotidian bit of lingerie.

Horst P. Horst (American/German, 1906–1999) started gaining acclaim in the pages of British Vogue fashion photography in the early 1930s, after meeting photographer Cecil Beaton (British, 1904–1980). The elegance in which Horst captured his subjects made him influential among a generation of photographers, including Bruce Weber (American, b.1946). A photographer for Coco Chanel for over three decades, Horst was strongly supported by members of the fashion community, including the prominent fashion editor Diana Vreeland. In addition to his fashion shots and portraiture, Horst photographed landscapes, architectural interiors, and still lifes throughout his career. Embraced by the art world, Horst began exhibiting his work in significant art galleries as early as 1932, and continued throughout his career. In 1989, Horst received the Lifetime Achievement Award of The Council of Fashion Designers of America, and in 1996, the Master of Photography Award from ICP, New York. His has been exhibited at the Fortuny Palace, Venice (1989), the Louvre, Paris (1991), the Museum Ludwig Cologne (1992), the National Portrait Gallery, London (2001), and The Victoria and Albert Museum, London (2007).

Selling or swapping, how to save 100% of your clothing values #fashion #trend

By @NguyenTHT (la version française suit)
”I have nothing to wear…and I don’t have a dime to spend…” – standing in front of the wardrobe feeling discouraged.

Does this sound familiar to you? Although our closet is filled with clothes, we constantly feel the need for new ones. However, we do not always have money to spend. One possible solution is a clothes swapping. Indeed, this is the oldest mean of exchange of human history. Therefore, this will allow us to satisfy our thirst for novelty.

« Je n’ai jamais rien à me mettre sur le dos… et je n’ai pas un sou à dépenser… » se dit-on debout devant la garde-robe avec un air découragé.

N’est-ce pas une situation familière pour la plupart d’entre nous? Malgré que notre placard soit rempli à craquer, nous avons constamment l’impression d’avoir besoin de nouveaux vêtements. Cependant, le dilemme s’impose quand notre portefeuille ne nous le permet pas… Comme solution, il y a le troc! Oui, oui, c’est le mode d’échange le plus ancien de notre civilisation qui nous permet de satisfaire notre soif de nouveauté.

By @NguyenTHT (la version française suit)
What if Coco Chanel was a Nazi spy? How would you feel about the brand? What would you do with your Chanel merchandise? Would you throw them away?

Coco Chanel était probablement une espionne nazie!!! Et si c’était vrai? Quels sont vos sentiments à l’égard de la marque? Que feriez-vous si vous possédiez des articles de Chanel? Les jeter?
