As much as we like to think that the latest fashions are...the latest or all new, we only have to take a look back to find out that it has all been done before. The difference is how it is interpreted.
One of my favorite places to spend some time is the Arms and Armor exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago. I find the armour to be especially inspirational. If you would like to take a peek at their collection and learn a little more about armor, you can see the Art Institute's website here, http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/armor. Below are some of the pieces that you you will see in their permanent collection.
As I went through the March issue of Vogue magazine, I saw a number of pieces that harken back to the armor of old. Below is a piece from Versace. Look at the shoes below and the picture above.
