40s fashion in Poirot

I adore this Chinese hat - red on the outside, black on the inside, making black squares in the face of the wearer :) And this kimono thing is really something!

Below: they call this white romper-ish thing a 'swimsuit'! I love it.

I also love this hat, white under, black over, and the black stripe on top...
Note: they were not going to a party (just showing off their status).

Television movies/series like Hercules Poirot and Miss Marple often inspire me fashion wise. (Sadly, what inspires me from the past is mostly impossible to obtain in stores.) They are more or less recent productions, but are set to times like the 40s (when Agatha Christie wrote the novels). Here sharing with you pictures from the movie 'Evil under the sun' (1982).
