We have a lot of Mad Men fans here at CurrentMarketing. I’m late to the party and I’ve just started watching the first season. I’m in love already. I’m also a lover of fashion and haute couture. Never mind the fact that I’d never be able to afford it or that it’s not practical for life here in The ‘Ville. It’s all just pretty to look at. I’ve noticed that some lines coming down the runway for Fall have a very Mad Men vibe to them. Louis Vuitton and Fendi both have lines this coming season that seem like they would be perfect for Betty Draper or Joan Holloway.
I’ve also noticed a new popularity in mid century designed furniture. Well preserved pieces are hard to find and if you do, the sellers generally know what they have and have priced them accordingly. Some EBay and Craigslist sellers will list their items as “mid century” just to get your attention. You click on the item and it’s something straight out of the 80’s. Let me just say there wasn’t much as far as fashion or design that I want to relive from the 80’s.
You can’t help but notice this coincidence between the shows popularity and the current trends in fashion and home furnishings. I’m sure Don Draper would agree.
