Retro Love: Acapulco

Acapulco and I have had a passionate affair for years, we love eachother. The Acapulco warm sun and the vintage vibes all over just kill me. Paule Ka used Acapulco as the background for the newest Campaign and I couldnt be happier!!

See a previoius post about Acapulco HERE.

"Opening sequence: the beautiful American, sometimes tight-waisted in her cotton jacquard dress, sometimes sculptured in a tight-fitting crocheted jersey tunic dress, is seen carrying her basket through the authentic fifties setting of the Boca Chica Hotel. The intense shades of the furniture echo the dazzling colours of the collection"






"Shot-Countershot: our heroine oscillates between siesta and fiesta. Languorous in shorts beside the lagoon-blue swimming pool, she’s expecting Elvis Presley to appear at any moment. After all, the hotel did serve as backdrop to the film ‘Fun in Acapulco’ in 1963. This season’s tropical feel is epitomized by the red of her sunglasses – an “Acapulco” special edition – limited to fifty copies"




note to self:  still NEED an Acapulco chair.

"Close-up on the evening: In a small, panther-skin coat, she sips her cocktail, looking out on the sunset. She has traded in her basket for a minaudiere clutch bag in palm-coloured braid. With red lips and cat-like eyes, she’s out to seduce. Paule Ka has created a movie star and we’re in for a happy ending"


Speaking of PauleKa. I have fallen HARD for this baby from his Ready to Wear Shop:
