In the crisp beginnings of winter, the vintage trend has been on the rise with a vintage reboot that we haven’t seen before. In its return, neo-vintage has awakened with a new style of flair and personal style by remixing different eras with new concepts. New vintage style is all about making dreams come true by making a trendy comeback with a retro feel.
This is evident in the throwback styles that we are seeing revived in the world of fashion, though with extra bells and whistles. Gucci’s approach to the trend is to marry Catherine de’ Medici with throwback looks of the 1970s, while Marc Jacobs’ lineup features a Victorian meets Gothic feel. “Michele made use of an archive of vintage fabrics, with prints so radical and profound it took minutes of purveying to fully take in the scene,” says fashion blogger Zack of Its Minimal about Gucci’s latest collection. “The use of embroidery is what really stole the show.”
Meanwhile, Alexander McQueen’s approach to vintage is romantic and dreamy that has make-believe fantasy come to life with tonal flowers, butterflies and birds. Fashion trends change with the times and it’s amazing to see the details that withstand the generation of trends.
The beauty of the neo vintage trend is the open-minded concept of allowing diversity, to cross into different eras and its roots in the youth culture of custom made crafts, where the DIY spirit of buying inexpensive pieces to mix and match eras is shaping fashion, home décor, and Christmas cards! We have applied the neo vintage trend to our latest collection of vintage Christmas card, and here are some ideas that are fun and easy to personalize and send to family and friends.
