Passionate About Vintage in Italian Vogue

Posted on 20/06/2015

The June edition of Italian Vogue has just hit the shops, and we were more than a little thrilled to see stunning Chinese supermodel Fei Fei Sun wearing Passionate About Vintage for the cover story.  These are some of my favourite images from the shoot.

 I love Katy England’s styling in these images. The combination of the Victorian lace up boots, full leather skirt, the long leather gloves pushed down, the length of the leg exposed and the jewellery layered over the dress. To me the looks are strong, sexy, feminine and powerful.

Vogue Italia used a selection of Passionate About Vintage jewellery for the shoot, including our Vintage Peach Vendome Necklace and Earrings Set, which Fei Fei is wearing in this last image.

Introducing The Monroe Collection

A stunning range of original vintage pieces that capture the glamour of the famous lady herself and her love of all that glitters.

The collection is inspired by our love of an enduring icon and to celebrate the Marilyn Monroe season taking place at the BFI throughout June.

Clockwise from the left: Eisenberg Chandelier Earrings, Kramer Swag Necklace, French 1950′s Drop Earrings.

Second row: Trifari Red Carpet Bracelet, Ciro Floral Spray Brooch, Eisenberg Headlight Earrings. 

This season the BFI plays tributes to Hollywood’s most enduring sex symbol – Marilyn Monroe and argues beneath the blonde stereotype beloved of the movie studios, Monroe was an actress of substance.  Alongside the dazzling classics such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Some Like It Hot don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Monroe’s  powerful performances in films like Let’s Make Love and The Misfits on the big screen.  Penned by her then husband Arthur Miller ,The Misfits is a powerful emotional drama that finally gave Monroe the role she had been waiting for.

Our friends at the BFI have also given us a very special 2 for 1 ticket offer just for Passionate About Vintage customers. Enter Monroe241 when you order your tickets online or over the phone on 0207928 3232 and buy 2 tickets for the price of 1 to see you favourite Marilyn Monroe movie!
