Retro hair inspiration from Dlindolls

Tucked away at the back of Pitti Uomo – away from the buzzing hive of menswear activity – was a hidden womenswear gem. If the antidote to testosterone overdose happens to be pink and hemmed with frills, then the brand’s installation was it. Models posed around a room that could have been a set from Mad Men: retro furnishings complimenting the sixties inspired fashion that…

And God created the bombshell blonde: Valerie Van der Graaf

When Anita Ekberg waded out into the Trevi Fountain in her black strapless gown, or Brigitte Bardot danced the Mamba with no shoes but plenty of passion, men of the day lost their breaths – and still do more than 50 years later.
