Another Retro Van Raalte Teddy

This Van Raalte teddy is straight out of the 1980’s. That might confuse those of you who recall (and are once again being sold on) the “trashier” punk-esque looks of the 80’s. But you must remember that there was also, on the other side of the fashion pendulum, a return to ultra feminine fashions, such as Laura Ashley etc.

While I did not myself wear the ultra femme and frilly fashions, I did quite enjoy the rich offerings in ladylike lingerie for lounging, sleeping and playing in… There was then such a luxurious feast of teddies, tap pants and camisoles. *dreamy sigh* I hope that with this 80s re-do, we’ll find more of such things too.
