Gilded Age's Escapist Fall/Winter 2011 Lookbook
What's more American than jeans, check shirts, and leather jackets? Add a historical backstory and you've got the makings of Gilded Age's fall/winter 2011 collection video lookbook. Inspired by the patriot Joseph Lloyd's flight from his Long Island manor after the British arrived during the Revolutionary War, this frenetic short film offers classic 20th-century looks without the chic 18th-century powdered wigs. Sturdy boots, thick knit sweaters, and rugged khakis journey over train tracks and urban overpasses and through forests and beaches. The American Revolution never looked so wearable.
