The pieces that influenced fashion
It was created in 1873 by Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis.
They obtained the patent and launched the jean pant in brown and blue denim for men working as miners in San Francisco.
Later and with the popularization of the garment, it became part of the supplies received by the soldiers of World War II.
Today the jean has been versioned to different models, styles, colors, and prints. It is a basic and essential garment in everyone’s wardrobe.
It is suspected that its origin dates back to the fifteenth century. To maneuver the stirrup of horses, a shoe with a kind of heel was required to fit and be comfortable for the rider. This was represented in Da Vinci’s works.
Also, we find the presence of a high-heeled shoe model among the royalty. Made up for Henry II at his wedding with Catherine de Medici and in Louis XV. And we have that the Stiletto model has this name thanks to its creator, the Italian Giacomo Pirandello, baron of Styletto. A man who designs and produces a shoe with a stiletto heel for equestrian maneuvers.
Today this shoe is recognized worldwide, finding it in countless models, styles, colors, and brands.
This piece of clothing is named after Bikini Atoll. A place in the Marshall Islands where this piece of swimwear was first seen.
Later, in 1946, it was shown in Paris at a fashion show. So from that moment on, it began its foray into the world of fashion and consequently its evolution.
Many swimsuits have been created. But the most emblematic and famous is the bikini since it is with this triangular-shaped upper part design tied at the neck and back and in the panty tied to the sides that the swimsuit is born.
Today the swimsuit is an essential garment to go to the pool and beach. Being its most frequent use on summer days.
Little Black Dress
It was a version of a classic black dress, which in the 20s was used only to wear mourning.
But Coco Chanel introduced it as a garment that represented, on the contrary, elegance. And is synonymous with good dress in the upper echelons of society.
It became a closet staple.
Because this model is used for various events and can be used for cocktails, night events, and even those requiring a formal protocol.
The first evidence of pantyhose-type stockings were ones made of wool to protect against the cold. This caused discomfort on the skin. Later on, creating socks in silk material was extremely expensive, focusing its use only on the elites.
So, it was not until 1935 when the American company DuPont created a super resistant, delicate, and elastic synthetic fiber. The nylon. Which also offered the advantage of producing stockings at a low cost. So, in 1939, they launched the stockings of this material under the motto: “Strong as steel, fine as a spider’s web.”
Today, the typical black, beige, and white stockings have diversified. You can find them in a wide range of colors, including textures, with embroidery and prints. It is considered a garment that provides elegance and is recognized as a symbol of femininity and sensuality.
They are used mainly in cold climates or winter times. However, it is not exclusive. As long as you feel comfortable, you can use them for the occasion you like.
It was popularized by Elvis Presley and the Hollywood actors Marlon Brando and John Travolta in Vaseline. The jackets were associated with airs of rebellion.
This garment was created in the United States during World War II War I for pilots to protect them from the cold.
In 1928, a model with a zipper was created, and motorcyclists liked it. This is also a reference when naming this garment.
The leather jacket has also been versioned with models even for women and various colors.
Another fashion icon. At the end of the 1950s, its beginnings were controversial.
It was a garment considered indecent until the arrival of the 1960s, when its use became popular. Until it was officially inserted into society and openly accepted.
Its creator was the British designer Mary Quant.
Today it is one of the most used types of skirts, finding it in various styles and models.
It was initially created for British officers to protect themselves from the rain during World War I. Its use was popularized in the 30s and 40s by some Hollywood actors who represented gangsters.
It is a classic cut jacket, open, joined at its ends by buttons arranged in the middle. Its length reaches the level of the knees together with visible and wide lapels.
It was not considered a coat, so it could be used at any time of the year. However, today, with time, it has been modified. Always maintaining the model, but making it with warmer materials, especially for cold climates.
Thus, we also find variations of this garment in terms of length, colors, and models.
Bras are a piece of underwear responsible for supporting the bust under everyday clothing.
The first type of bra known was the corset or bodice. This could have straps or not and covered the end of the waist, serving as a notch for it, tying at its ends.
It was not until the 20th century that what we know today as a bra was created. The shape was much more practical and comfortable than the corset, quickly becoming popular. At present, and like all the garments that we have mentioned, this one has also been subject to modifications and adaptations to satisfy all tastes.
As you can see, every one of them has been maintained over time. All transformed into a timeline to become trends and reach more people without losing their essence and original form.
