Interesting parallels

I was working on a look inspired by the beginning of the 20th century. In short, I was looking for a contemporary “long view look”, which became popular in the last several years. I stumbled upon one website, www.alsheyma.com (right), which has long view looks. It is interesting to find parallels – European fashion of 1913 and Muslim fashion of 2013.

Celine or business women vs housewives

The ancient Chinese say that one of the most important thing in order to reach harmony is to find movement while resting, and seek rest in movement.

The same principle applies to outfits, doesn’t it? It seems to me there should be more relaxation in the outfits of business women, as well as more elegance and concentrations should appear in housewives’ looks. Like complementary colors form white, different sides of women’s personalities can be combined in one look, especially if women wear it all the day long, one day after another.

Celine in the March 2013 Vogue illustrates relaxation (right). Yet such outfits are more for business ladies than for housewives.
