5 Ways to Get the Dandy Look

Monday, 28 April 2014 14:56:16 Europe/London

Click Here for: VINTAGE MEN'S ACCESSORIES

5 Ways to get the Dandy Look

At Berty & Gerty Vintage we just can't get enough of the Dandy look.  It's fair to say this so called 'Dandy look' has been part of our society for a very long time. Inparticular the late 18th to early 19th Century saw a  rise in Dandyism  with Middle class men paying greater attention to their tailored outfits: woollen tweed cloth, silk scarves, matching coloured accessories and highly shined shoes. Today we would call this particular  type of Gentleman a 'Fashionista'. One famous Dandy or Fashionistas from this period has to be Oscar Wilde.  Other gentlemen throughout history who have been influence by the 'Dandy Look'  these include: Andy Warhol, Lord Byron, Quentin Crisp, Salvador Dali and  Noel Coward.

In recent years, Dandyism made another resurgence in the 1980's with the New Romantics scene, unfortunatlely, Dandyism didn't say around for long. Here is our guide to getting the Dandy Look that's right for you:

1. The Peacock

This Dandy is a lover of bright vibrant hues made from lush silks. Every aspect of their outfit is bright, bright, bright!

2. The Traditionalist

This Dandy loves subtle shades made from hand woven Heritage  British woollen cloth. It's all about the cut and weave of the suit. The more the outfit screams heritage the better.

3. The Decadent

This Dandy is like a 'Magpie'! Give me: sparkle, gems,  gold and more sparkle. 

4. The Thinker

This Dandy loves to accessorise with one or two splashes of patterned cloth. This might be in the form of a paisley scarf or patterned socks.

5. The Expert

This Dandy is a combination of all of the above.

ALHOA ALHOA TO THE HAWAIIAN SHIRT

Friday, 12 July 2013 10:45:03 Europe/London

Here at Berty & Gerty Vintage we just love an Hawaiian shirt, especially now we have re-located to the Cornish Riviera, our studio overlooks Porthmeor Beach in St Ives, known locally as the Surfer's Beach. Many locals and tourists, alike, can be seen wearing this fantastic colourful shirt. Berty just loves a good Parrot Tropical print shirt, worn with a Christy's Straw hat, what could be more perfect for classic beach look!



The Alhoa shirt to give this shirt it's correct name grew in popularity in the 1950's. When the Waikiki beachboys and surfers just loved the bright vibrancy of these wacky shirts they started wearing them everywhere. It wasn't until Hollywood Film stars and celebrities started wearing Alhoa shirts, that every American had to have an Hawaiian shirts; as part of their own staple summer wardrobe. 


 

Blue Hawaii  the 1961 American musical film set in the state of Hawaii and starring Elvis Presley, saw a  massive increase in the sale of Hawaiian shirts in America and Europe.

Here are a few Hawaiian Alhoa Shirts from our ASOS collection:

VINTAGE ITEM OF THE WEEK BALLY

Tuesday, 5 March 2013 14:25:51 Europe/London

VINTAGE ITEM OF THE WEEK: BALLY

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-UK-Size-7-5-Bally-Ladies-Black-Patent-Boots-/130852770372?pt=UK_Vintage_Shoes&hash=item1e776ed244

 

Gerty is a big fan of vintage Bally shoes! Infact, I love Bally Shoes so much that I made sure these traditional shoes were going to adorn my bridal feet on my wedding day. They might  not have been vintage Bally, but  with  a three inch heel and covered in lush gold silk, they made my "big day" extra special. These timeless classics now live in a super soft brushed cotton sleeping bag in a vintage trunk and will probably sleep there for many more years to come. Well until my baby girl (9months) is old enough to wear them! Personal memories aside; Bally is the brand to collect and wear:

Started in 1854, a shoe factory was set up in a swiss village by Fritz Bally. In just 6 years 1860 Fritz employeed over 500 staff and was selling the Bally Brand interntaionally. The Bally brand remained in full family control until the end of the last century. The strong concept and identity for luxuary refined details, hand crafted appeal and minimal decoration is why this brand has lasted the test of time.

At Berty & Gerty Vintage timeless classics have such an appeal, why not check out our other Bally boots, shoes and bags on our eBay boutique, website and ASOS.  Click the link at the top to see our Bally Vintage Collectio.

The Vintage Scarf

Monday, 12 November 2012 08:57:52 Europe/London

The Vintage Scarf

 

 

The trusty silk scarf isn't just for that certain type of lady marching down the King's Road. We believe any 'trendy' worhy person should own a least a dozen scarves.

Since the 1930's silk scarves were mass produced as a little bit of luxury for the woman on the street. It was the like of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn that made this little bit of luxury an essential statement piece for any woman's wardrobe; even more popular than red lipstick.

Whether you are a collector of imitation silk 1930's rayon scarves or collector of the optical geometic prints of the 60's  we should have something in our collection for you. The best way to wear the silky scarf is to wear it cowboy style, to show off the lovely print. Please take a look at our some of our scarves on our ebay site, asos boutique and on our own website.

Vintage Old Bags

Thursday, 8 November 2012 10:23:46 Europe/London

OLD BAGS

BERTY & GERTY VINTAGE LOVE A GOOD OLD BAG. WE ADORE THE LINED TEXTURED LEATHER WHICH ADDS LOADS OF CHARACTER AND PROBABLY HAS A STORY OR TWO TO TELL.

OLD BAGS ARE NOT ONLY A VERSATILE FASHION ACCESSORY BUT THEY ARE ACTUALLY REALLY FUNCTIONAL AND HAVE AN EVERYDAY USE.

THERE ARE SO MANY STYLES, BUT WE DO LIKE A LARGE LEATHER TOTE HANGING FROM OUR COURTURE LADEN ARM. THIS IS AN INSTANT STATEMENT!

FOR SHEER VISUAL IMPACT LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THE 80'S. A DECADE FAMOUS FOR OPULENCE AND GLAMOUR, WHICH IS OFTEN REFLECTED IN THE HEAVY EMBELLISHED STYLING AND MUTLI-COLOURED PANELLING ON THE BAGS FROM THAT PERIOD. WE SAY HAPPY HUNTING. HERE ARE A FEW SPECIAL BAGS WE HAVE GOING LIVE OR ALREADY LIVE ON ASOS AND EBAY:

THE ANKLE BOOT

Sunday, 4 November 2012 10:20:39 Europe/London

Ankle Boot - Get well heeled...

 

Ankle boots this season are massive. We are surprised each year how many new styles grace the cat walks in London. Current favourites are what we call the classic Mary Poppins, which are a Victorian style lace-up boot with a small kitten heel with a hook and eye fastening. We have noticed a demand in tour shop for the classic mod chelsea boot, be it flat or with a cuban heel. Gerty's favourite is a chocolate brown buttery leather ankle boot which is lined in cream leather with a slight grip sole, Bally or Russell & Bromley vintage ankle boots are simply the best. Here are a few examples:

Statement Knitwear

Monday, 17 September 2012 20:26:12 Europe/London

STATEMENT KNITWEAR

 

There's a lot of gloom and doom about at the moment, what with the economy and this Autumn's fashion trends of goth and military. 

Why not buck this trend with a piece of statement knitwear. Perhaps an oversized cardi or jumper in a bright angora or mohair. Not only will you feel warm and luxurious but you'll add a dash of colour to an otherwise dreary landscape. Take it a whole step further with embellishment or multi fabric design circa the 1980's or look out for batwings and real fur trim for that ultimate Molly Ringwald in 'Pretty in Pink' Look.

Granny Shoes

Sunday, 22 July 2012 19:27:59 Europe/London

Here at Berty & Gerty Vintage we have noticed a trend that we like to call 'Granny Feet'. It seems that a classic brown brogue or two tone loafer are just the ticket whilst pounding the streets in our ever busy and hectic lives.

Invoking images of Girl Guide Leaders, Headmistresses or the Women's Institute these classic shoes not only provide practical comfort but also create a stylish finish to any look. At Berty & Gerty Vintage we're constantly sourcing fine examples of the 'Granny Shoe', classic hertiage brands such as Bally, Russell & Bromley, Barker and Van Dal come to mind. We suggest you look for details in the shoe like a hand crafted leather sole and leather lining, leather  front tassles and a gold horse bit cross bar to be sure of pure quality.

The Italians know a thing or two about  the classic  Granny shoes! Berty suggests you look out for Gucci Loafers and a Margaret Thatcher favourite 'Ferragamo' for the full ' Italian Granny Effect'! Gerty believes that these shoes work well with practically anything: skinny jeans, denim hot pants, legging, however, it is the trusted tweed trouser that works the best on any classic vintage gal. We think Margaret Rutherford's portrayal of Agatha Christies Miss Marple in the 1950's is the epitomy of marrying fine Harris Tweed with a classic  Granny Shoes a fabulous example of classic dressing.

It's not just Berty & Gerty Vintage that advocate this look many designers such as Ralph Lauren and Burberry Prorsum have embraced this season trend for Countryside Chic. This look revists old country classic: tweed jackets, Fair Isle jumpers, arran jumpers, leather gloves, silk scarves and of course the 'Granny Shoe'.

So get your 'Granny Feet' out for the full  on-trend look for Atumn 2012.

Both examples below are avaiable to purchase through our BertyGertyVintage eBay boutique.

THE POWER OF PURPLE FASHION

Wednesday, 11 July 2012 21:30:57 Europe/London

The power of purple or should we call it Papal fashion is everywhere this autumn. Normally, bright scarlet red is a big favoutite on the catwalks for autumn, but not this year! We have seen deep purple shades from the likes of Erdem and Dior, whereas Chloe and DKNY have plummed for dark black cherry. This whole experience has made Berty & Gerty Vintage feel a little fruity, are you feeing fruity? For this season we will be adding a touch of vintage rock and roll along the lines of: 'Deep Purple', 'King Crimson', 'Under the Cherry Moon'... You get the idea and a whole head to toe look emerges from 'The Purple Haze'.  This fruity experience filtered into our ASOS Marketplace Boutique photoshoot with our in house model Eleanor; here are some of our fav photo's from the shoot. All items can be purchased from our ASOS boutique!

The Berty & Gerty Guide to Looking Cool at the Camden Crawl 2012


 

Berty says: The golden rule for looking cool during the Camden Crawl is, in a nutshell, wear a hat! 

Throughout music history the hat has been a key accessory: think Marc Bolan wearing  his Top Hat on the cover of the 'Slider' or  David Bowie, Circa 1976,  in character as the Thin White Duke wearing his Fedora.  Rock and Rollers have always finished off a look with a fine hat, be it a Pork Pie  as  the star accessory atop a two tone tonic suit  or  in more recent years Pete Doherty wearing his staple trilby working his skinny jean rock aesthetic.

Berty & Gerty have welcomed a few famous  rockers in over the years looking for the ultimate  cool hat. Most memorably Meatloaf  purchased one of our black cowboy hats to wear at the Kerrang Awards.  Debbie Harry from Blondie also popped in to B&G in search of one of our Pork Pie hats on route to her performance at Latitude. 

 

         Top Tips for styling the rocker hat look: 

  • Tilt it on the back of your head for extra loucheness.
  • Add a peacock feather to the side of your fedora.
  • Girls wear a man's trilby or bowler for a sexy look.
  •  Work a massive floppy 70's hat with long hair.

Vintage Guide to 90's Style

90's fashion is making a big come back on the streets of Camden, North London. Those of us who lived through the 90's  as a teenager the first time around  might hesitate at the thought of unkempt grunge for a second time. Indeed, the 1990's was a period that rejected fashion leading to a casual look, including T-shirts, Jeans, Trainers and Dr. Martens. Here at Berty & Gerty Vintage in Camden Lock, we have our fingers firmly on the trend pulse, giving the youth of 2012 a big helping hand to achieving the perfect 90's look. Here is  our 5 point vintage guide to 90's style:

  1. Grunge the early 1990's look: includes oversized t-shirts, oversized jumpers, leggings,  head scarves, denim shorts, Dr Martens and babydoll dresses.
  2. The Continuation of 1980's Fashion: tight skinny jeans, denim button down oversized men's shirts, oversized denim jackets, penny loafers, converse and satchel bags.
  3. The Mid 1990's youth culture: gypsy tops, floral skirts, hippy-style floral dresses, lace blouses, patterned blouses, oversized checked flannel shirts, acid washed jeans and flared trousers.
  4. Psychobilly late 1990's look: brothel creepers, bowling shirts, cut off fraded denim shorts, western checked shirts and crop tops.
  5. Berty & Gerty complete 90's outfit: bowler hat, oversized tartan flannel shirt, denim cut off acid wash shorts, black tights, Dr. Marten coloured boots and a satchel bag.
