Yohji Yamamoto said “black is modest and arrogant at the same time”, and we can certainly see what he meant. Here are five vintage monochromatic looks that capture this duality.


1940s Day Jacket, 1940s Velvet Quilted Skirt
1950s Fringed Evening Dress
Victorian Velvet Stand-Collar Jacket
1920s One-Shoulder Lace Bow Dress 
1940s Tie-Neck Pleated Dress


These monochromatic looks are availble to hire from our Womenswear Archive at our Central London Showroom. If you are interested in booking an appointment, please email info@thevintageshowroom.com or call +44 (0)20 8964 8785.
