We're super proud of our Birmingham heritage and what could be better than the magnificent show Peaky Blinders returning to our screens tonight at 9pm!
The inspiration for the show is fascinating and you can read more about it here. The original Brummie boys, the 'Peakys' were local gangsters from a century ago. These violent criminals would sew razor blades into the peak of their flat caps to use as weapons and had a distinctive sartorial style that set them apart from the rest! The girlfriends were described as wearing ornate pearls, a goudy silk handkerchief covering their throat and showing off a full fringe obscuring the forehead, we can only imagine what they would have looked like in one of our dresses...
We really think that Polly and Grace's dark vs light twenties styles really rock the gothic-luxe trend on the catwalks this season, why not take a look at our gothic 1920s style headbands and chokers for a more sultry flapper vibe?
We love the way this piece of history has inspired one of the most gripping shows we've ever seen...so excited!
