The Wunderkammer of the Mild Colonial Boy, Esq., a Reactionary Tory Gentleman, who armed only with a Steampowered Babbage Engine and Pure Intentions, wanders the Time Streams and Aetheric Plane gathering an Eccentric Hodgepodge of Curiousities, Frivolities, Whimsicalities and Nonsense.
Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"?
A. Because "My Grandmother's Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning" wouldn't fit in the available space.
As promised here is a small portion of this season’s history inspired fashion.
Dolce & Gabbana 2013 collection - heavily influenced by Medieval art; byzantine mosaics, frescoes, lavish crowns, embroidery, silk prints, heavy lace; view it in all it’s glory here
Chanel Pre-Fall 2013 - more of an Elizabethan influence; puffy elements, Scotland, Scotland, Scotland, everything here
The above mentioned collection was campaigned by Lagerfeld and Tilda Swinton, couldn’t help but remember the magnificence of Orlando; for more awesomeness redirect here
Valentino Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection - the last two images are from the same show, in this case a lot of flirting with Renaissance (note Durer’s rhinoceros on the first dress), mixed with some eastern Europian folk elements; view the collection here
