Topic: Dieselpunk fashion

Where dieselpunk itself is ill-defined, dieselpunk fashion has nearly no clear guidelines at all, save that it draws inspiration from period fashion, that is, the 1930s and 40s, sometimes including elements from the Roaring Twenties and even the early Cold War. 

Here's some depictions of both period as well as contemporary outfits which I think fit the dieselpunk style.  Please do share your own!

I feel a zoot suit riot coming on...


Re: Dieselpunk fashion

Dieselpunk is very in right now, several designers have picked up on it.
Expect to see it show up in winter fashions soon!

Re: Dieselpunk fashion

I think dieselpunk in terms of clothing works better with fall and winter;  fedora hats and rain coats and all, not very summery.

That's a lovely picture of Bertie Wooster, Steiner.  I certainly got dieselpunk vibes from it.  Humphrey Bogart, of course, an obvious choice.  Though more noir than dieselpunk, perhaps, I still find him to embody the dieselpunk man excellently.

DP/pulp fashion? Bring it on!! Step aside damn metrosexuals! Time to insert some proper manliness into fashion!


Re: Dieselpunk fashion

What is the dieselpunk equivalent of the vapours? Because I think aku's post just gave it to me tongue Those are some fine lookin' fellas!

Here are images from a magazine photo shoot that I found on the foto decadent livejournal community. I think it brings together a bunch of dieselpunk elements. One of the pictures is NSFW.

Re: Dieselpunk fashion

Ooh! I like those, especially that first picture. I wonder where she's going with that humongous suitcase big_smile

Re: Dieselpunk fashion

That's very true, there's a lot of looking back at the 50s and before at the moment, as I talked with Ottens the other day. Though I wonder how that will manifest itself.
In this country there's somehting disturbingly 70s with modern fashion. Perhaps sense will drag us to a better age.


Re: Dieselpunk fashion

How odd, I feel that over here, in The Netherlands that is, there's a tendency toward pre-hippie, 1950s fashion, but only among a certain kind of people.  You'll still see plenty of people dressed most indecently.

Those are some pretty smart photos, Colonel!  They might be slightly more, uhrm, romantic, than dieselpunk usually is.  They make me think of Berlin in the last weeks and days of the War, with the Soviets about to storm in, and all people left in the Reich's capital boozing and partying.
