The passage of time proves to be the biggest juxtaposition of all. It's almost jarring. Especially with Alice McCall's trademark embellishments against an 'oh god, never thought I'd see that colour combination again, and my god is it bringing back nostalgia??' backdrop.
White and stripes will confuse future historians forever. Good luck trying to place a timeframe on fashion. Unless we bring back something crazily overt, this century seems to blend within,
I'm sure I could see pastel where there isn't. I just love the softness of it, how it seems to possess its own gravity to settle daintily on one's frame. Ahh yes, the faded floral wallpaper.. I swear you could displace any of us in an unfamiliar grandparent's house but upon seeing that trademark, your first response would be 'grandmother??'. The trumpet sleeves are a nice nod to that era, blending seamlessly into the contemporary cut with the signature embellishments that McCall is known for.
An interesting execution and fulfilled McCall's vision. The whole thing screams of nostalgic charm that begs to grace Instagram feeds.
