Mad Men are responsible

October 13, 2010


Sexy Women from Mad Men


Well, it seems the show 1960’s set show ‘Mad Men’ is partly responsible for the new love affair with vintage clothing.  In the US and Australia this show is creating vintage fashion waves and women are seeking more and more to replicate the looks in their own wardrobes.

On Monday the Sydney Morning Herald caught hold of this story too, claiming the show has ‘changed the face of fashion’.  It goes on to explain that the looks are created for these sultry and sexy ladies who play the wives of Advertising Executives and Managers in the show, are achieved by the lingerie department’s foundation garments, including girdles and longline bras.

You can view the whole story here, to see what else Janie Bryant, the show’s costume designer has to say about how the fashions have been recreated.  It is my guess that while the dresses will continue to be popular as Mad Men continues with its fourth season in the US, and has another contracted for next year, the underwear in its original form is unlikely to catch on.  However, that is not to say that like any fashion the underwear will not evolve.  After all, women will want to look this good, and most of us are unfortunately not blessed with the perfect hourglass shape!

The article also suggests where you can achieve such looks priced at up to $600, for a cheaper alternative check out Covelli’s range.
