If you want to see the influence of Geoffrey Beene in 60s day wear, you could do worse than these three frocks from my store, all in black wool.

Geoffrey Beene. I grew up hearing that name a lot. It was the early 80s and my aunt, whom I practically lived with, was going to fashion school. His name was all over the magazines that came to her in the mail and she kept referencing him. I sort of knew him as a respected American designer, but it wasn’t until much later that I really figured out what his legacy in this country was.

Here is a classic 60s tweed suit from the master himself. I may never get to offer another vintage Beene in my little store, so am currently basking in the glow.

This post is my kick-off to a slew of Beene or Beene-inspired musings and images coming to this blog!

Interiors from Mad Men season 5, episode 1. A study in contrasts.
Don and Megan - swanky and of the moment
Joan and baby - very 50s palette and nostalgic (Joan is Old School) - my fave.
Pete’ suburban kitchen - homey, suburban, in a cheezy-cottage style, purposefully reminiscent of the old Draper kitchen. One of the most poignant scenes was him standing there alone at the end of the day, eating cereal out of the box.

Mad Men inspiration post #4.

Here is a suit from my store that I think would be perfect for the Rachel Menken character from season 1.

Maggie Siff was well cast as a strong, Jewish girl who runs a department store in New York and knows her self worth enough to say to Don Draper:
"“This was a dalliance, a cheap affair. You don’t want to run away with me; you just want to run away. You’re a coward!”

Mad Men Inspiration post #3 - Light blue satin formal dress with floral applique and fishtail back panels. Silk satin.

Betty Draper, hands down!

Mad Men inspiration post #2 - 60s, all sequined, black wiggle dress.
Not quite a Joan Harris, as she is not overtly sexy in that way nor does she often depart from smooth solids.  I can see it on Bobbie Barrett if she was perhaps 5 years younger or so. Perhaps, back when she worked as a show girl.


Or, there’s the cute nurse Phoebe,who is neighbor to Don Draper’s bachelor pad. With her pixie cut and humor, she could really own this one~
