Fashion Fave: Wheels and Dollbaby

Alannah Hill may have left her brand, leaving a gaping hole in Australia's retro-pop feminine fashion scene, however, Wheels and Dollbaby more than risen to the challenge with their latest collection, Social Aristocracy.

Melanie Greensmith creates a seductive secretarial ensemble that takes sexist male office fantasies and gives them a feminist twist that all women can enjoy.
The little black leather dress with a pencil cut hem takes the cake as the sexiest thing to come out Sydney since Jennifer Hawkins. 

But the collection isn't all power and sex appeal, the dainty 1950s new look style floral dresses, again take negative historical female stereotypes, in this case, the mid-century housewife, and elevate it into an artistic and empowering piece of fashion. It seems that Wheels and Dollbaby's latest collection displays an acute understanding of the true meaning of retro fashion:an artful mix of social commentary and aesthetics reinterpreted for contemporary values. 
Now, that's my kind of style.
