How to Dress Like Your Favorite Mid Century Designer

Words by Jody Hume | 4.27.16
When you think about it, furniture and fashion have a lot in common. With visionaries at the helm of both furniture design firms and luxury labels, we look to both realms for creations that look forward into the future, and both set trends and defy them by remaining stylish, coveted and unparalleled long after their debuts. From the Eames Lounge Chair to the Dior Bar Jacket, some designs provide endless inspiration, and Mid Century furniture never goes out of style. Iconic pieces still fetch high resale prices and modern day designers continue to produce newly manufactured versions of licensed classics. At fashion houses like Balenciaga, Gucci and Dior, designers constantly return to the archives for inspiration and to reference the house codes that define a label’s look and ethos. We thought, why not combine the best of both worlds? From Ray & Charles Eames to Mies Van Der Rohe, we’ve rounded up iconic pieces by our favorite Mid Century designers and used them as outfit inspo.
