From Louis de Funès to Louis Réard! I like to share with you that CHB has gained some great friends thanks to the article I wrote about the Packard Super Eight with yacht coachwork by Henri Chapron! See ‘LE YACHT DE LA ROUTE AND BIKINI GIRLS’.
First of all about the current owner of the brand Réard! He plans to re-launch the Réard brand in the summer of 2016, which is absolutely great news. I hope to see a lot of people wearing Réard fashion again soon! It would be even better if the Packard is present at the launch, to add lustre to the event! Who knows if that will happen… but meanwhile stay tuned for this great event – I will keep the readers of CHB posted!Then another wonderful contact that I have gained with Ghislaine Rayer from Nuits de Satin! Make sure to visit her incredible blog about vintage lingerie and swimwear by clicking here! Looking at her blog myself, I am deeply impressed by her work! She has been involved with the production of several movies, editorials, shows, ect. Even VOGUE is on her list… great job Ghislaine!
All this shows that it is sometimes worth stepping out of the routine of the classic car scene, digging even deeper into history. For sure vintage fashion, combined with vintage cars, lifts the subject to a level of total haute couture, like at the concours d’élégance. There people show their automobile in period dress, making the whole package complete, like at Concours d’Elegance Chantilly Arts & Elegance!So I welcome everyone interested in vintage … (you can fill in yourself). If you like to see a certain vintage subject in combination with vintage cars then I shall always be happy to receive your request!
