With the constant reinvention of fashion, old styles are being brought back and combined with new ones, and this retro-inspired fashion editorial from Bambi magazine proves that old and new can come together in harmony.

With a backdrop of an art studio, this editorial took viewers on a trip back in time to the 1960s, all the while combining modern pieces. Large hair was paired with a dramatic cat eye evoking the nostalgic vibe of days gone by. Also, the transition between black and white and colored photography was a perfect match for the old vs. new theme.

This editorial spread was primarily 60s-inspired, while the silhouettes of the clothing stayed modern. The short skirts, tight fitted a-line dresses and giant platform (or heelless) shoes brought this shoot into modernity. Bambi Magazine was able to perfectly pair old and new, and showed that retro-inspired fashion can be easily worn today. Stats for Racy Retro Editorials Trending: Older & Buzzing
