An aesthetic defined

I just came across this New York Times article from July, which pins down and gives a name to a style that's been gradually gaining a lot of momentum: the "New Vintage". So that's what you call it.

I was into the New Pretty rage ages ago, but I felt it was missing something. It was missing wonder, oddity, the fantastic and the strange. Now New Vintage comes along.... *happy*

"New Pretty"...? Please explain!

Blogger Gautier Pellegrin:

over it, all brooklyn and downtown NYC is all antlers and taxidermia and old prints and...
can't take it anymore.

Well, New Pretty is an assortment of bold graphic prints, Scandinavian-inspired decor (clean, whimsical lines), organic shapes. It was all over Elle Decor and Domino.

I do like new vintage, minus the taxidermy. The wunderkammen feel is nice.
