Ooooh, look at what The Times wrote about today. Steampunk is “a subculture that is the aesthetic expression of a time-traveling fantasy world, one that embraces music, film, design and now fashion, all inspired by the extravagantly inventive age of dirigibles and steam locomotives, brass diving bells and jar-shaped protosubmarines.”
I have no interest in really dressing in steampunk fashion, but I would consider clothing that has touches of this look. Also, using the steampunk look in decor, to me, has a very World of Interiors look (which I already love!). Make sure you check out the the slide show as well as the full article on nytimes.com. I am all for the steampunk look because it has a formal, classic, and artistic feel vs. the goth/punk look that is so common here in Las Vegas. I’d rather see petticoats than chains any day. However, if that chain is attached to this accessory that contains fragrance (an Edwardian tradition of aristocrats), I am all for it.
