The new KNAPP Post-War collection by Antonia Yordanova channels 1920s glamour and luxury at its finest. Each dress is fit for a night out at a speakeasy with a dashing beau, and feature warm colors such as burgundies, mauves and oranges. Their flattering shape makes for a beautiful fit on women of all sizes and their understated colors make sure that these dresses will warm up a complexion instead of overpower it.

Some of the most striking pieces in the Post-War collection are those that take masculine fashion trends from the 1920s and put a feminine twist on them. One such ensemble consists of a floor-length grey skirt and a dark orange sweater paired with a black riding hat. This outfit is much more masculine than the others in the collection, but serves to explore just how fluid gender-specific fashion trends have become.

This stunning collection of prohibition-era ensembles hints at a rise in popularity of vintage styles. These flattering designs will be seen in the mainstream market before too long, but hopefully without the accompaniment of another prohibition.
