Just looking back a bit here, the September 2009 Vogue issue caught my eye for the spread of designer-wear inspired by design lines of 1942.
I found this piece interesting for what I believe it reinforces good, vintage details in contemporary wear.
I like that the basic lines of the jackets are so easy to see in the garments as compared to the two pattern fronts below. The soft details the designers added look easy to add for nice embellishment.
The 40's never go out of style...
