As I have been showing throughout the month, the 1940s have inspired an awful lot of fashion this Fall and Winter. From the fashion runways to the Golden Globes, the gowns, tea dresses, fitted suits, furs, and accessories from the decade of film noir are all the rage this season. You can see a few more of the looks here. Double Indemnity (1944) was one source of inspiration, a movie whose style has always been a favorite of designers and found on their mood boards year after year. In fact, the decade as a whole seems to be moving beyond a trend...designers have learned the timeless nature of 1940s style and many have incorporated it into their collections for Spring 2012 as well. Stay tuned!
