World War II Fashion

History of Sorts

Before you ask, I know absolutely nothing about fashion. Then why do a piece on fashion in WW2? I hear you say.

There is no particular reason, but after all the heavy subjects I usually explore, I decided to go with a more lighthearted one for a change, while still staying on the subject o World War 2.

Picture above: Bath and beach fashion. Swimwear from Germany. One-piece swimsuit in a fabric with a herringbone pattern. The low back is closed with a cord. Apr 28, 1942.

Shoe fashion. Women’s high-heeled shoes in black patent leather and side closure with buckle. Black suede trim. The shiny stockings are made of fil d’écosse (shiny cotton yarn). Netherlands March 14, 1941.

A Japanese department store where every sort of Japanese designed goods were sold.

France. Hair fashion 1940. The blond hair is undulated with strokes on the sides. Coiffure Jean Pierre.
