Modern Vintage

Hello loves!

We absolutely love vintage. As far as we’re concerned, the more antique the better! We especially love romantic lace that makes you feel like a starlet from a different era. Lace has always been such an important part of fashion – from outerwear to knickers it is the ultimate symbol of femininity and grace. Worn with a certain jacket or shoe, lace can become a bit gothic or more soft and romantic.

While vintage and retro are beautiful, overdoing the style can get a bit.. well, granny-ish. To make our vintage pieces more current we spiked our outfits with a bit of punkish modern attitude. Here are the results:

Modern vintage outfits Modern vintage outfitsRony wore a Chanel-esque vintage crochet pullover and a black lace chiffon blouse.

Rony modernized the look with a black studded mini skirt, greenish gray tights, studded cuffs and Victorian peep-toe booties.

Vera made the outfit modern punk with her black leggings, layered chain necklaces and tough-as-nails booties.

What better location to photograph these outfits than at one of Tel Aviv’s most beautiful old buildings, the Beit Heseg building, located on one of Tel Aviv’s most beautiful streets, Rothschild Boulevard.

This building was originally planned and built in 1924 by prominent Israeli architect Yehuda Megidovitch, is under preservation and has undergone restoration by important Tel Aviv architects such as Yaski architects. We just love the way this eclectic building blends with its modern surroundings!
