There was a time when the rush to modernise, to leave behind childhood memories was a force to powerful to resist. However, in recent times people are harking back to days gone by.
Maybe it’s the realisation that the designers of the Twentieth Century actually had a bit of swagger! That the products that were produced back then were designed to not just do the job – but to look great too!
Take a 1950’s kitchen for example. After emerging from the austerity of the war years, there was a real desire for colourful storage and great looking accessories as oppose to the dreary functional products of the past – why not put flowers on it?
Of course the 1960’s was the decade that redefined people’s roles in society. Women felt more liberated and the music of that time celebrates this movement – maybe that’s why the music of the 60’s and 70’s is still revered so much by the musicians of today?
The 1970’s were for many years, the decade that style forgot! But of course it was being judged against the hugely stylish shoulder pads and rolled up sleeves on pink suits that was the 1980’s!!! Now the 70’s is a decade people celebrate. Not just the for cultural elements – music – the emergence of Punk – and film, but for those very personal memories that products such as Subbuteo, Superman, Bagpuss and the sweets of the time that we all spent our pocket money on, evoke.
Vintage is cool! It’s back!
