Picnic At Hanging Rock
With the recent airing of Foxtel’s ‘Picnic At Hanging Rock'- that boasted a deeper, darker, sexier approach to the original, we’ve been taken down a path of Victorian style inspiration, taking a leaf out of the ever feminine and endearing Picnic At Hanging Rock masterpiece. This post is set to take you on a journey reimagining scenes from the all time favourite of moments laden on the grass with a good book, giggling friends and extremely well crafted apparel that flattered the waistline like nothing else. Two piece sets and dresses of the crispest white cottons, lace yolks and floral detailed necklines that were designed so beautifully you can’t help but sighhh...
We fell madly in love with Vogue Australia's 2015 Lost In Time editorial staring good friend's Phoebe Tonkin and Teresa Palmer, so much so, we've revisited it here along with images that capture the essence of Picnic At Hanging Rock and it's fun, flirty and free spirited approach to Victorian fashion.
Gone are the days (so to speak) of boned corsets and modest layering, though it's warming to know that we can take a trip down memory lane and appreciate just how stunning this era of style truly was! The contrasts of white with the Australian bush setting is incomparable, hence the imagery is particularly memorable. The use of soft cotton voiles, hand sewn lace and iconic detailing is of a time before fast fashion made it's emergence - and it reminds us just how deeply we appreciate well made garments and accessories.
TFS has some Picnic At Hanging Rock inspired pieces in store now. Here's some of our top picks to layer those crisp white cottons for winter to achieve the look.
Golden Brown ~ We are loving the Papillon motif tops, sweaters and light knits in neutral earthy tones for those weekends picnicking in the hills.
