Vintage Clothing from the Past: Hong Kong 1950s-Early 60s

Mad Men‘s fourth season debuted yesterday, but have you ever wondered what clothing from other countries looked like around the same period? Below are clips from various fashion shows in Hong Kong back in the 1950s and early 1960s. Notice how many pieces look like they were inspired by Asian clothing. Also, observe what the men were wearing. The guys certainly look more “westernized” in their dress, don’t they? If you want more inspiration from this time, and from Hong Kong, check out movies like In the Mood for Love (starring Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung)
