The glamourous greaser

The real greaser girls probably would be aghast at just how chic they’re now considered. They were the rebels of their day. They were the subculture, the alternates. But oh how we now romanticise them. How we polish them and make them pretty. The alternates have now become conservative.

Fashionable culture does that to the past. The Romantics built forlorn ruins, the Victorians embellished the Gothic, and we make chic all of the 20th Century’s fashions. We remove what failed, cut for a modern taste and present it as vintage. We’ve done it for the military, we’ve done it for the 1970s and we’re now doing it for 1950s fashion. And we love it.

Vogue Hellas’ Cadillac Woman does just this, presenting a Anastasia Perraki who is just too pretty, too well put together, too couture, too chic. It’s the 1950s for the modern age, and you can see it in full by browsing through the gallery above.

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.
