Classic fashion: your inspiration guide for Autumn

At Fashionising.com we try to remain focussed on two things: fashion trends and styling inspiration. Today we feature a shoot that is full of the former, and yet it’s the latter for which we really selected it. Put trends aside for a moment: if classic fashion, with a Swinging London twist, is your thing, then this shoot is for you.

I feel compelled to give you a simple description of it, perhaps finish off a sentence with “in a word” in it, and then let the shoot do the talking. And yet one word doesn’t seem enough. By no means is this the photo shoot to end all photo shoots; it’s not a grand vision by the likes of Grace Coddington. But what it is is brilliantly styled and impeccably refined. It’s classic fashion revivalism where barely a piece misses the mark and the styling never does. If the appeal of 60s fashion and styling is your thing, then this photo shoot should be your how-to guide for Autumn / Fall 2010.

As a fashioniser you’ll no doubt recognise many of the pieces; after all this isn’t a look book for a particular brand but, surprisingly, a shopping destination. Should you find yourself near Long Island, New York, be sure to take in Americana Manhasset. And if you don’t, and this style of fashion appeals, the pieces and styles shan’t be hard for you to buy locally.

Indulge in Americana Manhasset’s Autumn / Winter 2010 look book, which features the gorgeous Edita Vilkeviciute, by clicking on the thumbnails below.

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.
