1940s / 1950s hairstyle inspiration

One of the things that I dearly love about 2009 fashion is the constant revitalisation of classic motifs; a revitalisation that is also apparent in this year’s women’s hair trends. Thus, if you’ll permit me, may I present you with a visual treat that personifies the year’s 1940s hairstyle come-back.

With a late 1940s / early 1950s hairstyle laced throughout, this shoot features model Viktoriya Sasonkina and was photographed by Steven Meisel with styling by Andrew Richardson. It appeared in Vogue Italia back in September 2008 but is no less relevant now.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
