Fashion match: how to wear the mini dress and the long skirt…

Sixties mini dress…

Where does it come from?

The history of the miniskirt? It goes back a very, very long time. We can even talk about the Nordic Bronze Age or the Qing Dynasty. But the minidress became especially famous in the 1960s, thanks in particular to the mother of this symbol of femininity, the famous designer Mary Quant.

What do we think?

Microwear is a real movement today. Once a symbol of sex appeal and femininity, the miniskirt trend lives on and remains an emblem of women’s emancipation. Sexy, bold and daring, it returns with graphic pieces and old school details and materials.

The trend?

You couldn’t miss it, the mini – even micro – skirt from Miu Miu. She never stopped talking about her. Courrèges, Balmain and Prada were all there. And we could see all styles; leather, vinyl, patchwork or sixties inspirations. One thing is for sure, we never tire of it.

… or long pleated skirt?

Where does it come from?

It may seem quite surprising, but the pleated skirt took its first steps on a tennis court. Who would have believed it? It was indeed the designer Jean Patou, who created this famous piece for a famous tennis player, Suzanne Lenglen, in the 1920s.

What do we think?

Between Covid and lockdown, we demand more and more comfort in our clothes. The pleated skirt is known for being soft, flowy and super malleable; and it is true that we feel quite well there. This rather classic piece will still add body to the skirt and make your outfit chic.

The trend?

A symbol of the bourgeoisie in the 1950s, it was the master of folding, the Japanese designer Issey Miyake, who revived the trend. Today we see all the big fashion houses getting into it, like Altuzarra or Gucci.
