Halloween once again has come to Petrune! It is one of our favorite times of year… Since the sparkles, sequins, and fun costumes are adding such punch to our racks!
This year instead of taking the spooky route, we decided to make a ferociously fashionable lion tamer window! The lion tamer outfit is comprised of all vintage pieces, largely from the 1930s, and completed with a lovely 1920s top hat. The lion is our own Petrunia Faux Leopard Jacket.
We have many more amazing costumes and pieces for sale, and also available to rent. For only 25% of the retail price, you can rent any piece of clothing here at Petrune for a full week! Come on down for a total unique Halloween costume!
In Ithaca we are lucky to have so many talented students with a passion towards vintage clothing. This past month aspiring fashion photographer, Mathea Millman did a photo project that modernly presented Petrune’s timeless collection of clothing. She incorporated pieces from both our vintage-inspired and pure vintage collection in this incredible field shoot.
To see more pictures of this stunning shoot as well as many other inspiring images, be sure to check out Mathea Millman’s blog, Up and Coming.
Petrune is happy to be celebrating Silent Movie Month this October in Ithaca and you’re invited to a reception for the Ithaca Motion Picture Project to celebrate a month of exhibits, events and screenings focused on the silent movie era and Ithaca’s own Wharton Inc motion picture studio. We were inspired to do a window display of one of Ithaca’s own Silent Film actresses Grace Darlington, the star of Beatrice Fairfax serials.
Grace Darlington, Silent Beauty, 1893-1963
