it is so interesting how certain retro styles make their comebacks. i love how fashion returns for another hurrah in different ways. the peter pan collar is one of those retro styles that keeps going. according to wikipedia, it is "named after the costume worn in 1905 by actress maude adams in her role as peter pan, and particularly associated with little girls' dresses". seems like this little collar has had quite a few revivals, hasn't it? i recently bought a detachable beaded peter pan collar from a lovely seller on etsy, becoming the second piece of a peter pan accessory that i have (i posted a tobi necklace here). i am eagerly waiting its arrival. it's another way to wear a trend without committing to it on a piece.
what do you think of the peter pan collar?
this sweater is from simons, a canadian retailer, is sold out on the site but is called "retro tompe-l'oeil sweater" the site seems to stock with new items (and sell out of other items) quickly. the e-comm site is really user friendly and their sizing guide accurate. free shipping for purchases over $50 and free returns.
