Cinema is important - basically every art form comes to cinema. It involves music. Painting. Everything. It’s the closest we can come to life. A painting can only give you so much, I think. And music is very beautiful, but when they all come together… you’re really embracing everything. I don’t think some people realize, actually, how important it is. - Saoirse Ronan
1880s Black & Mint Corset
The label inside reads Marie Grochovska, a Varsovie, Faubourg de Cracovie No 39.
Faubourg de Cracovie is now called Krakowskie Przedmieście. It is a prestigious street in Warsaw’s old city, and with such an address Madame Grochovska’s shop would have been stocked with only the finest money could buy. The corset is made of two layers of silk, the exterior a black brocade and the interior a pale blue moire. The maker’s name is also engraved on the busk. | Kent State University Museum
Oh my god, the flossing! The detailing on the busk! And the SHAPE! I think my heart rate actually went up for a minute.
This is amazing.
LOVE this photo shoot by Eugenio Recuenco. Fashion and fairy tales.
