The 'Forties Something' editorial for How To Spend It is a beautiful display of romantic vintage looks perfect for nostalgic couples. The photo spread focuses on a young couple as they explore their surroundings together. The two are seen reading magazines on a park bench, sipping coffee and walking through a train station. All of their outfits are gorgeous and elegant ensembles right out of the 1940s.
The male model wears mostly tweed suits and fedoras, looking every bit the fast-talking New York reporter. His female counterpart wears soft, pastel-colored sweaters and dark pencil skirts, her hair cut short like an ex-flapper. By photographing the two models together in domestic settings, 'Forties Something' takes on an everyday romantic feel. There is a sense that these two have been together for quite some time and just enjoy being around one another. This sentiment is absolutely lovely, and makes this editorial one of the most memorable of recent months.
