As a design blogger, I think I’m so on the edge of ‘what’s happening now’ (maybe not) but I had never heard of this look before and honestly, it sounded like she was talking Latin I thought it was such a strange name.
But I’ve been doing a bit of research tonight and here is what it sort of is: ‘The intersection of technology and romance. The definition is loose enough to include ‘Mad Max’, vaudeville burlesque and the structured gentility of the Victorian age’ as reported in the New York Times. Part of the reason it seems so popular is because it’s hard to pin down exactly what it is.
I just realized this style goes with the Pretty Ugly colours that I talked about last week from the CMG Conference!
Victorian style meets the height of technology. The return to formality and manners! Hey, maybe they are on to something! The blog that tells the story best is More Ways to Waste Time, click here to read it.
