 Shopper's News - Trend: 1940s

Hello Fashion Diggers...

ELEGANT 40s SUIT from Metro Retro We love the 1940s trend in fashion as witnessed during the spring collections. Prada, Roberto Cavalli, Chanel, La Perla and Betsey Johnson featured sexy 40s looks on their runways, so we scoured the site for pin-up girl vintage finds to add to your wardrobe!

Check out the sexy lingerie like lace slips, peignoir sets and black fishnet hose... the quirky cocktail hats, Crawford-worthy coats (don't miss the mink stroller)... sophisticated suits and Bakelite jewelry. Male Fashion Diggers should browse the large selection of vintage ties in argyle and atomic prints.
